Can I Change The Gnome Pop-Up Window Settings In Fedora Core 2?


You know when you double click on a folder, a new window pops up with its contents, then if you double click another folder a new window pops up, and pretty soon you have 15 windows on your screen. Is there a way I can change that?

Thanks for your time,
Maat

If you are using Konqueror, click on 'Settings' -> 'Configure Konqueror' .

No you want the top option "Behavior". Under Misc Options, unselect 'Open folders in separate windows'

They already said they were using Nautilus.

Firstly, I'd recommend trying to get used to this. It's called "spatial navigation" and can prove convenient if you don't have a very deep directory heirarchy. You can also open a window while closing the first by [double] middle clicking.

If you still want to switch it off, use gconf-editor (Configuration Editor) and change the setting in /apps/nautilus so "browse mode" is always used. You can access a browse mode window from the Applications menu -> Browse Filesystem.

Hope that helps.

I'm sorry, they said that they are using Gnome. I don't use gnome and I didn't realize the it uses a different default file-browser. Now I know.
