Nemo - Open all instances in same window

Post by FIGG » Sat Jan 12, 2019 12:15 am

It would be great to have new instances of Nemo open in a new tab in the same window. For example, if Nemo is already open to the home folder and you right click on Nemo on the panel and select "Trash" or one of the other selections it would open that folder in a new tab of the existing window, or if Nemo is already open and you open a folder on the desktop it would also open a new tab in the window that's currently open.

Thanks,

James

This is possible with an extra panel

Many thanks, Gruppo - that's another really useful snippet that I've picked up while browsing this forum.

Thanks for your reply Gruppo Sportivo. I know that you can manually add new tabs. What I am referring to is having a setting that automatically does that regardless of the location of the new folder that you're opening.

Thanks!

Nemo has multitab.Press Ctrl+T to open a new tab. In a new tab, you can browse different place.

Edit:This does not happen automatically (keyboard shortcuts) Suppose it is better to approach the developers of Nemo by submit an Pull Request at https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo
