When I am in the file list view I can drag to other applications like desktop, slack, etc.

But when I am in thumbnail view I can't do that.

Any way to change that behavior?

File explorer doesn't say what product it is but when i search for nautilus this seems to be it.

  • I tried dolphin file explorer but it doesn't seem to have a thumbnail view, just icon and list detail views. – Michael Durrant Oct 22 '19 at 14:40

I found that nemo does this.
I then created a shortcut by dragging nemo over the the icon launcher dock.
Its the one after Chrome in the second image below.
