I am looking for the functional equivalent of Mac Finder's COMMAND-click-on-triangle, which expands all subdirectories.

I installed Nautilus, Dolphin, and Thunar -- & Manjaro, Mint. I've checked this & other sites, but can't find anything that works, unfortunately.

I need this in a file manager. Command-line programs tree and ls don't permit access to individual files and closing selected subdirectories.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated !! I'm trying to make a clean break with Mac.

  • Do you mean you are searching something functioning similar to the Mac 'COMMAND click on triangle' or is you question broader? It is not very clear for me nor for people not using Mac. – Marc Vanhoomissen Dec 28 '17 at 16:02
  • "I'm trying to make a clean break with Mac." Not going to happen when you start incorporating things in mac into your linux machine ;-) – Rinzwind Dec 28 '17 at 22:03
  • Note that I wrote an answer here then moved it over to the linked question since it's older and more upvoted. Sorry for any confusion. – wjandrea Dec 28 '17 at 23:39
