Nautilus's Default View
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
too many nautilus windows open
Default should be Browser view
Every new install users need to
Click Edit --> Preferences
Click the behavior Tab
Check the box "Always open in browser Windows"
This is not a bug. This is the default setting upstream and opening up new
folders in the spatial view is by design. If you do not like it as a matter of
personal preference there is easy enough setting to use the browser view.
If you want to discuss the rationale behind upstream defaults in this case you
can post to gnome-usability list. However this is a discussion that has been
hashed out there multiple times already.
