I'm new to Linux, and this might seem ridiculous to ask. Whenever I press to upload or download a file from Chrome, the Files window seems to appear outside reach, which precludes me from selecting the file or the directory. How can I bring it in reach? If I go to the top left corner and click activities, I can see the Files window is there together with the browser, but it's unreachable.


you can try to 'detach' the file browser dialogbox from the main window
type this command in a termnial
you can rollback by entering the same command with false replacing true...

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter attach-modal-dialogs false
