How annoying, reminds me of old MS-Windows versions... Is it possible to
revert this to the original behavior where it is opened in the same
window? As far as I can tell there is nothing in the preferences menu to
get the old way, sadly.
Anyone who can tell me the idea behind open directories in new windows?
Personally I think opening new directories in the same window is
superior, just like tabbed browsing in web browsers. Is there a gconf
key or something?
I agree, that would be incredibly annoying. I'm not a
tonnes-of-windows kind of guy myself. I'm probably not the
target user of nautilus either though, but then I don't use it at
all because I can't do what I need to do in it. It's nice for
I recommend using Midnight Commander (mc) in a konsole shell
instead for more advanced functionality. Works great, plus if
it's your regular filemanager, you can use it over a network
easily also as a one-size-fits-all solution. Not sure what
running nautilus over CIPE over the internet would be like, but I
don't think it'd be fun. ;o)
