View Full Version : [ubuntu] Opening Files like in Mac OS X

May 26th, 2009, 09:12 AM
As some of you may know, there is a feature in Mac OS X that opens up all folders within a folder/directory with a simple key combination. You can do this in Ubuntu by highlighting all desired folders within a folder/directory, and right click and choose "Open in X New Windows" X being the amount of folders you have highlighted. But I want to be able to do this with a simple key combination/shortcut. I know that you can go to System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and then click Add. But I don't know what to put in for the Command. All help is appreciated. ;)

Oh and, I wasn't really sure where to put this thread in. If it belongs somewhere else, then go ahead and move it. :P

That works, but it opens them up in tabs, not windows. I'll see if I can change the command so it opens in windows. Thanks anyways, never knew about that key combination.

Alright, I tried a few different combinations, and Shift + Ctrl + Enter worked.
