Gnome: All windows in the same one


Every time I open a folder in Gnome, a new window appears, that can be annoying. I searched through the menus, but coudn't find an option that would stop this. Anyone knoes how to make Gnome, open a new folder in the same window ? Also does gnome (nautilius) have an address bar like in KDE ?

Launch nautilus with the command
nautilus --browser
or launch gconf-editor and navigate to apps> nautilus> preferences and tick the box
always_use_browser []

Edit, there's another way to set that key, open a nautilus window and go to Edit> Preferences> Behaviour and tick the box Always open in browser windows

KDE has a lot more stuff that you can configure compared to GNOME. There are some things you can change in GNOME using the gconf-editor, but you can't compare it to what you can do with KDE.
