Exploring folders


Hi,
I have one problem while exploring linux. Each folder is opening in its own new window. How can we stop this so that we can go to each folder in the same window.
Thank you. Please reply me asap.

what program are you exploring it with? there are dozens of "explorer" clones available. which ever it is, i'd be very suprised if there was a tickbox in a preferences dialog.

Exploring linux

hi,
What I mean by exploring is "double clicking" a folder. For example let us say i want to go to a path \etc\mnt\c
I double click "file system". so that folder opens. Then if I click "etc" folder then it open in a new window. again "mnt" folder opens in a new window.
What I want is all the folders should open in same window.
I think I made myself clear. Now let me know about this.
Thank you.

regards,

Let's start guessing then.... Konqueror?
Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Behaviour -> Uncheck "Open folders in separate windows"

Running FC3, I would guess he's probably running Gnome/Nautilus....

The steps to take would be very similar, though.

Similar as in "exactly the same" i'd be willing to bet. Funny how people who wouldn't think twice about poking round an app in windows, suddenly can't do it in linux, when it's exactly the same... odd.
