But if you also want output to console to automatically be hidden, your 
start equivalent is nohup,

Unfortunately, no easy shortcut to open the file browser, you will have 
to specify the file browser you want before the .

example nohup caja . or nohup nautilus .

And be aware that nohup also detaches the child process from the 
terminal as a parent. (so closing the terminal will not close processes 
opened with nohup.)
