I am using the Linux Mint with Mate 1.12.0. When I opened my File Browser I can press F3 to open an extra pane two different directories at the same time. Is it possible in the same window to see four different locations?

Sometimes I manage many folders and to have two file browser open, each with two folders isn't a good option.


as far as i know more than 2 parallel panes are not possible (at least without tweaking), but you can use as much tabs within one window as you like:

maybe this is the right place to ask further or suggest "new" features or enhancements: https://github.com/mate-desktop/caja

  • Exist a file browser similar to the Apple? Because to web developer this browser is so good! – Edgar Oliveira Jan 26 '16 at 10:26
  • i don't know apple or apple-browser so i can't give you further advice, but maybe softwarerecs.stackexchange.com would be the right place to ask for alternatives... – DJCrashdummy Jan 26 '16 at 10:51
  • i think especially on MATE 1.12 with the snappy edges your workaround with 2 windows (maybe close the side-pane(s) for more space) is not a bad idea... – DJCrashdummy Jan 26 '16 at 10:54
