Mint 16, Mate...

Caja is OK, but Nautilus has the addons or plugins I like.

How do I replace Caja with Nautilus as the default file manager?

Menu>Preferences>Preferred Applications>System> you can change it there though Nautilus based upon Gnome 3 and MATE is based upon Gnome 2 thus some of the plugins may not work right or at all on your system,different dependencies ,different libraries,etc.

Many thanks TheDynamicHamza21, this is just what I had to do to fix my issue. File Manager was on VLC.
