Thread: Prevent Dolphin From Dropping Files Everywhere

  1. #1

    Question Prevent Dolphin From Dropping Files Everywhere

    Is there any way to stop Dolphin from creating .directory files in all my directories when I am viewing hidden files?

    I am pressing Alt+. to view hidden files in a directory.

    Other file managers seem to do it fine.

    Turn off "Remember View Properties for all folders".

    Menu: Settings > Configure Dolphin > General > Behaviour

    On the other hand ... These .directory files seem to be created too if you give folders custom icon via 'properties'. Hmmmm
