Say I have a folder that has a lot of directories, and a lot of files in it. I click the arrow to expand the folder and then drag the folder down to the file list in the parent directory. When I release it, nautilus moves the window so that the file you moved is still in the visible plane. This causes me to lose track of what directory I was in.
Is there some way to disable this, or to hold down a key while I'm moving the file so the file isn't followed? It seems like an ideal behavior to be able to control.
