I suspect that if you open another instance of the file browser (as in double click on your computer icon) then you should see an option for the "other".
If you find yourself doing a lot of file/folder copying and moving, you might want to consider utilizing a dual-pane file browser. A couple of good apps that come to mind are krusader (kde app), xfe (cross desktop app), and midnight commander (also plays nice at the command-bash level). My longstanding app of choice is krusader (worth the kde libraries you inherit running a native kde app in gnome-like environment).
