    Default Nautilus: Anyway to get the opened folder to the top?

    I was wondering if there is a way to make Nautilus scroll up when opening folders. If I open a folder at the bottom of the page, the subfolders open below and I have to use the scroll bar to move down the page to see what's under the top folder.

    I would like to have it put the opened folder at the top of the page so I can see as many subfolders and files as possible without having to scroll. Something like the file roller when you are looking for a place to extract files. It does exactly what I'm looking for.

    Are there any settings I can change in Nautilus that would provide this function?

    Hi
    Edit->Preferences and uncheck the Sort Folders before files? If not
    have a look at changing to maybe compact view?

    Thanks!.. Tried both unchecking sort folders before files and compact view and it didn't change the result. Any other ideas?

    Hi
    Since the order is set to alpha/numeric I don't think it's possible to
    move an active one to the top of the list. Maybe you could ask over in
    the gnome.org forum to see if it's even possible?
