Select files - never saw before!

Post by ud6 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 10:29 am

I accidentally pressed 'Crtl+s' to save a document, but I was on desktop, and it asked if I wanted to select a file based on keywords. I have never noticed that in all my years of Linux Mint (Mate). A useful function if you're in the file explorer or on desktop.

Have there been any functions in mint, or associated popular software, that have been around a while (not sure if this has or not?!) and you only discovered a long time afterwards??? Maybe we can share some of those.

:D

The MATE desktop is provided by Caja, so the usual Caja keyboard shortcuts like the one you mentioned continue to work. There are others, e.g. Ctrl+F for the search tool.
