How can I navigate folders and subfolders at the same time?
Like "column view" in Mac OS X.
Edit 2: I use Ubuntu 14.04 and I couldn't install Marlin, so I installed "Pantheon File Manager" instead.
Yes I got it.. It's marlin file manager
If you want to install execute following commands in terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marlin-devs/marlin-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install marlin
Hope it helps you..
This is one of the main reasons I always use List View:
It's not always ideal.
Some file managers have a multi-pane option. Nautilus used to but this was stripped back. There has been a bit of a struggle to get it back but I'm not sure how viable that is now.
I use Dolphin these days (I'm also a KDE user so that makes sense for me) which might be an option if you're doing this a lot. List view plus split screen FTW:
Your best choice is ranger, which is terminal based.
Nautilus, the file browser in Ubuntu supports mutliple tabs. You can have multiple locations open in the same window, but in different tabs.
To open a new tab in Nautilus, press Ctrl+t.
To open a folder in a new tab, focus on the folder and type Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
To close a tab, press Ctrl+w
