I've installed the latest Scientific Linux 6. But when I opened the included Nautilus file manager, there is no file tree sidebar and no toolbar, nor status bar. How do I activate them?

For the sidepane, you can either hit F9 or go to View and select sidepane.

Similarly, for the toolbar and status bars, select them from the View menu.

  • Hitting F9 didn't work, and I don't see those options in my View menu! What's wrong? BTW, I am using Nautilus version 2.28.4.

    I'm on 2.32.0. You are in spatial mode library.gnome.org/users/user-guide/stable/… Open run menu (Alt-F2) enter gconf-editor and browse to apps/nautilus/preferences and select "always use browser."

There's another option:

If Nautilus (your file manager) is just a box (spatial view) go to "edit", then select "preferences" and in "behaviour" choose "Always open in browser windows". Then close the window and open it again.
