I lost the default file manager(explorer) in Gnome?


The default file manager (nautilus) is no more there. When I click on my home folder, it is opened by dolphin...how can I get back the default? thanks in advance.

Look in the menus, or submenus, I think there's an option called "Preferred Applications" (something like that), where you can change it.

Right click on any folder, Select "Open With..." and then select "Nautilus" !

Which OS ?

Thanks brianL for the quick reply. It is not mentioned in preferred applications. I went to that several times..No mention of file management there.

Mmm, I don't know. It's a while since I used Gnome, and I didn't use it much.

Thanks brianL once again. I found it. I opened the folder by dolphin and then properties and then open by application>>>selected file manager which is actually nautilus. and applied...now the file manager is nautilus.

Thanks once again.
