I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and I want to sort files in a file explorer by their extension. I found the possibility of using nemo and sort the files by the Detailed Type but this doesn't really work satisfactorily. I have e.g. some files from MATLAB with the ending .m but some are marked correctly marked as MATLAB file but some are marked as Objective-C source code but they are also plain MATLAB code. Is there any way to sort the files (and folders) reliably by their extension? I'm not tied to any file explorer so any recommendation is very welcome. The two most important features which must be supported are
Sorting the files by their extension (highest priority)
Showing the whole address in the address line (rather than only those 'blocks' starting at the home directory)
You mean like this? The blocks you mentioned are called "breadcrumbs" (I don't know why) but you can get rid of it by clicking on the button I encircled in red in the picture below, to the left of the word "Location".
