By ctrl+alt+t I can open terminal. So Is there any keyswitch to open nautilus? or we should define that?
By default there is none, but you can set one:
System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Custom shortcut
Then press the
+ Button. The command to run is
After creating the shortcut, click 'disabled' then press the desired key combination (e.g., Super + E) to set the new shortcut.
Super+t = Trash, it uses nautilus to show you the Trash! Works fine for me.
Super+1 opens Nautilus, at least in the default Ubuntu + Unity installation.
If you're coming from Windows and are used to
Win + E for opening explorer, I'd suggest following the steps below to achieve the same effect. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 although this should work for earlier versions (correct me if I'm wrong).
Winkey and search for 'Keyboard' and open up the result that comes first which is related to Keyboard Settings.
- Scroll down and click the + button to add a new shortcut.
- Give a name like 'Open Files' and for the Command field, give
- Click Set Shortcut and press Windows Key and 'E' together to bind the combo
- Click Add
Now, whenever you press
Win + E, you get a new window of the Ubuntu file explorer.
Super+1 works great. This is what I was looking for.
creating own / custom shortcut using
nautilus ~/ (for home directory)
just opens up search function. While this the way to open nautilus through command line / terminal, but doesn't work out of it!
