None of the above! File management is one of the two things (along with system maintenance) that I always do at the command line. It's so much quicker.

I tend to do a lot of my file management from the command line, but sometimes nothing beats a GUI. Tonight I've watched a couple of murder mysteries that I started from Dolphin because starting the files from the file manager seems easier than hunting for them in the media player (they are stored on an external drive).

I will also sometimes use a GUI file manager to hunt for a file when I'm not certain where it might be in a hive of nested directories, but I know which hive it's in, because it's easier than ls this, cd that, ls the other, rinse and repeat. (Yes, I know about locate, but sometimes the GUI is just easier . . . .)

I sure miss ranger sometimes -- the smoothest, fastest, most intuitive basic navigation/copypaste UI I've ever used hands down, and that vim-capable bulkrename ... mmmf. But it has seemed bugged/broken in Debian Stable in recent months/years, and I can't be arsed to troubleshoot. So Caja it is.

I've tended to hop between desktop environments, and have tended to fall more in love with programs that don't really need one desktop or another. That said, I use Nemo on Cinnamon, and Thunar on pretty much everything else. Like half of the components of XFCE, I've found that Thunar can really be used anywhere... even KDE!

Of course, that's all assuming I'm not going full CLI. Sometimes, nothing really beats tools like find, ls, and grep, especially when searching for files.

Dolphin is what I use most, Midnight Commander is second, maybe tied with the CLI.

Midnight Commander about 99.9% of the time.
