[SOLVED] Upload File Explorer Preference Change To Have The Address Bar

Postby GaryD » Sat Oct 28, 2017 5:55 am

I don't know what exactly it's called. But I want my file explorer to have the address bar so I can just paste in the path when uploading files.

I'm on Linuxmint 18, and I want this:

Instead of this:

Is there any settings for this - so I can change the behavior? I want the file explorer to have the address bar so I can just paste instead of manually traversing through several directories.

I use my Linuxmint box on a daily basis and been using this box for almost 3-years now. I use it in a my home-based job. So I often download/upload, browse files within my box. As far as I remember, this is not the behavior when still on Linuxmint 17.

I am aware of what that button can do, it toggles the bar on/off - but only for downloading files.

The behavior is different when uploading a file. That bar/button is not on the toolbar, like the one shown in the image above (the Open File box) - enclosed in red line box.

Okay, just checking the obvious, or so I thought.
Which Linux Mint 18 are you on? Interface stuff differs between desktop environments.

I'm not sure how to reproduce this... how do you get to this window you are seeing?

When using any web related application, like when using phpMyadmin to import a database dump. Or...

when uploading files to any web app. Try uploading an image using Imgur, then hit "Browse", that window above should pop up

Once you've clicked on browse and got the file.upload window open - try CTR/L

On Cinnamon 18.2 here (fingers crossed same in 18.0?), and that toggles the path area in the Toolbar. Not sure if the default can be preset, but a step forward anyway if it works for you.

(Edit: PS: It's called Nemo File Manager in Cinnamon)

Yup... that works for me, too. I hope that's a solution!

Yeah, thank you! I know Nemo, it's the window that pop up when you upload a file - don't know what it's called :-) Or... that thing still part of Nemo? Like Caja?

It worked for me:

Code: Select all

CTRL + L


I hope someone would jump in and tell us if we can set the defaults.

Mick-Cork & Moem, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
