    HOWTO: Restore Nautilus Address or Location Bar

    Many people dislike the new Nautilus view where the full text path is not shown, but instead Icons of each folder. To restore Hoary like location "address" bar

    Here is the Simple Fix

    If you want it to only last for the current session hit CTRL+L

    When you are done with it and want the "new" view back , click in the location bar and simply push "esc"

    To make it permanemt:
    Open Applications->System Tools -> Configuration Editor
    find the entry
    "/apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry"
    and click the checkbox on

    hmm I will make this interesting, Im going through every ctrl+? combo and will post a nice little keyboard shortcut guide aswell

    ctrl+w Closes nautilus
    ctrl+r Refreshes
    ctrl+s Starts selection patern dialog
    ctrl+x Clears address bar so you can type any location
    ctrl+b Bookmark Editor
    ctrl+n Opens a new window with old view restored
    ctrl+"+ or -" changes zoom
    ctrl+1 or 2 changes views

    I dont see anything that changes it back though, ctrl + n is the closest but it open back to your home directory

    EDIT
    Found out how to get back to button view without closing/re-openig. Pretty simple actualy, a bit to simple I thought it wouldnt work but it did

    just push "esc"
    If you click a folder to open while in location view then you have to click in the location bar then esc, if you hit ctrl+l then click nothing then esc will take you back fine

    I added this up to the top post aswell
