If it's there, it's probably in GNOME Tweak Tool. But the functionality has
been removed from upstream GNOME and will probably disappear from the next
release of Ubuntu.

FWIW, I replace my file manager (and desktop too) with Nemo, the file
manager from Cinnamon. It contains all the functionality removed from the
last few versions of Nautilus and more.

This gives you the ability to have icons arranged vertically (in columns)
or horizontally (in rows) but you don't get to pick the origin.
