View Full Version : [SOLVED] Right click on the file browser with no empty space

Hi there,

Let's say you are browsing a directory with the file browser (i think it's called nautilus). And the you have 200 files which fills up the pane. And you want to create a folder, or you just want to run a command from right click menu. Because there is no space available, when I right click it only shows the commands for the selected file/directory.

Or you want to drag and drop a file the the directory which you are already in. again same thing happens. You have to drop the file on to another file or folder.

is there spacial place where I can do these?

Hope it makes sense :)

Am I the only one having this problem?

the right clicking options for the folder are still available through the menu (file, edit, view etc...)

as for drag and drop you can either drop it on the folder name ( marked '1' in the screenshot) or change the viewing way (marked '2' in the screenshot)

I have the same problem using pcmanfm. Sometimes it's just easier to use icon view for a moment then switch back to list view. Otherwise I'm trying to find a file to drop a folder on to so it adds the folder and doesn't put it inside whatever folder I'm hovering above.

That's what I was afraid of :)
