Thanks for pointing out Nemo. I at first thought of this guy when you mentioned it:

To check what file manager you have as default:
xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search
To test it enter this in terminal:
cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ xdg-mime query default inode/directory
That opened Nemo with my home directory and when I click on Places and then Home, Documents, etc. it opens Nemo. Sweet!
I got that from this page here.
Thank you runrickus!
