    Re: File Manager issue

    You have posted in Ubuntu/Debian based, but you haven't said what distro/operating system you are using, nor what desktop environment. Without that information, I doubt that anyone will be able to help.

    Re: File Manager issue

    Usually the layout views can be controlled under the "View" menu item.

    Searching for "Ubuntu Desktop Guide" or "Lubuntu Desktop Guide" or "Kubuntu Desktop Guide" will almost always file ... er ... the guide for the specific desktop being used with a chapter on the file manager. I see coffeecat's signature has a few links.

    Regardless, the first step is to know the actual name of the program, not the menu name. Different DEs will use different file managers, each is a little different. Nautilus, thunar, caja, are a few.
