This question already has an answer here:

I have GNOME Shell 3.16.4 installed on my Ubuntu 15.10 machine. However I get the old boring Unity like file manager. Here's a picture of my file Manager. See the top bar is like Ubuntu and button are on the left.

However, I want this my top bar completely like one below. Where you get to type the path. Also, you get the close, maximize and minimize button on the right and only back-forward buttons on the left.

  • @don_crissti thanks for the last answer. However, my question was a 3 question in one. All related to top bar. – Abhimanyu Aryan Dec 13 '15 at 17:31
  • @don_crissti yaa I should have according to the community guidelines but then I had to create multiple questions for such a small thing. Also asking question takes some waiting on stackexchange. You can't ask many questions in a line. I thought it won't be productive. I'll keep that in mind from next time :) – Abhimanyu Aryan Dec 13 '15 at 17:34
  • @don_crissti yaa the thing is I am noob. I could have searched if I knew its called nautilus and not file manager :D – Abhimanyu Aryan Dec 13 '15 at 17:48

With some simple command in your terminal:

To show the pathbar:

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry false

To change the button layout:

  • add the values at the left side of : for buttons on the left side

    close,minimize,maximize:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout "close,minimize,maximize:"
    

    enter image description here

  • add the values at the right side of : for buttons on the right side

    :minimize,maximize,close

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"
    

    enter image description here

  • or mix them

    close:minimize,maximize

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout "close:minimize,maximize"
    

    enter image description here
