Thread: Configure Nautilus to open folders and documents with one click

  1. #1

    Default Configure Nautilus to open folders and documents with one click

    Hi All,

    There used to be a 'configure' option in Nautilus, if I remember right. But I am experiencing that folders open only with double-click.

    Is there a way to configure Nautilus to open folders and files with one click instead of double click?

    Thanks & Regards,

    RSP2

    Hi
    Sure, open Nautilus, the in the top bar files -> preferences -> Behavior tab, select the single click to open files radio button, or from the command line (or dconf-editor);
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences click-policy 'single'

    Thanks a lot. The code did work !

    The size setting slider does not stay at minimum size. On next opening of home folder it jumps back to the middle. Is there a remedy to that as well?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi
    You mean icon size?
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.icon-view default-zoom-level 'small'
