    How do I show the full path in file browser rather than buttons to folders?

    I need a way of copying a full file path from the file browser but I only have a list of button to represent the file path.. any suggestions?

    thanks

    Hi,

    You could drag and drop the folder or file into an open ternimal; then copy and paste to where you need it if you do not want it in the terminal.

    There are almost certainly other methods as well.

    My regards

    Ctrl+L does work. I was wondering that exact thing and I was even going to make a thread for it. Thanks Man!

    Close Nautilus/File Browser.
    Press Alt-F2 and type the following in the run box:
    Code:
    gconf-editor
    Expand Configuration Editor
    Code:
    apps --> nautilus --> preferences
    Tick ‘always_use_location_entry’ and close Configuration Editor.

    Open Nautilus. Voila!

    Hope this is what you've been looking for.
