File manager windows don't do titling - Zorin 15

File manager windows don't do titling - Zorin 15

Postby masternetra » Sat Jun 15, 2019 6:02 am

Out of the box I've found that with the file manager windows don't do titling except for full screen, any way to get it do half screens like you can with say a firefox window? (You would think you could do half screens with the file manager giving how it's what your mostly likely to have two snapped next to each other for moving files)

It might be the way Nautilus has 'progressed' :-> Can't remember if Thunar has titles or not but it does have a useful utility, batch file renaming. Or you could install midnight commander.

Was the O.P. referring to Window Tiling?

I am using Thunar on both Machines. SpaceFM and Nemo are also good File Mangers.

Wonder if this is what was/is needed?:

Nemo is a fork of Nautilus (which I was not aware of!) ;) :D

I see so it's just a nautilus thing. I wonder why they didn't just use Nemo. Nemo > Nautilus. Oh well I'll just install nemo then.

Nemo is very functional. I am only using Thunar because of a feature it has that Nemo lacked- which is odd. Other than that, Nemo wins hands down as far as ease of use and functionality, in my opnion.
In Nemo, if you hit F3, it creates the window as two side by side panes allowing easy transfer of files and folders. Much better than opening two separate windows. Hit F3 if you want to revert back to one pane when done.
SpaceFM is quite the powerhouse as well.

Ctrl and t will give you tabs (similar to browsers) in most file managers.
