[SOLVED] Toggle Location Entry in Open, Save... etc windows

Post by ZFR »

Using Cinnamon 4.4.8

In the windows that appear when you Open, Save... etc, is it possible to toggle location entry so you can type it. Like what you can do on on a normal windows by pressing Ctrl+L?
It's a bit of a pain that you can't copy/paste a location.

I don't know what desktop you're using but in the ones I've used you can just click something to the right of the location and it'll toggle modes. In KDE there doesn't seem to be anything there but there is.

And whaddya mean "normal windows"? :wink:

A normal window is any Nemo window. There is a button that you can use to Toggle Location entry (or you can use a shortcut Ctrl+L).

Not in those windows you get when you do a "Open" (or "Save As", "Download"... etc). Which unfortunately means that you can't just copy or paste the location.

When the Save As or whatever window is open, press Ctrl+L and you'll hopefully get what you want.

Wow. So simple... It never occured to me to try the keyboard shortcut.

Thanks!

You're welcome. I had to guess at it myself, but fortunately my brain didn't fail on this one. :wink:
