When I single click on a bookmark in Nautilus 3.26.4, it adheres to the pointer and gets dragged along. How can I fix this? This has happened to me on Ubuntu 16, 17, and 18.
You can try out the following commands to resolve this issue:
gsettings get org.gnome.nautilus.preferences click-policy
If you get something as an output, go ahead with this command:
gsettings range org.gnome.nautilus.preferences click-policy
If the above command still lists single and double as options, then proceed with the below command:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences click-policy single
If all goes well, your issue will no longer be in existence. Let us know in the comments below.
After much searching online, I found the following Launchpad bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rapidsvn/+bug/402892
Apparently it's an old GNOME bug which is still unfixed.
