Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

PCManFM-qt has become pretty much a complete replacement for Dolphin/Konqueror

It has split view, and can have a permanent filter field, at the same time it's faster to come about and perhaps even to navigate (that may be just an illusory impression).

It's still miles and miles away from KFM of KDE3, but I believe humankind will never again match that greatness. Sad that "trinity" never got as much adoption as Mate.

    I've been using PCManFM as my main file manager for a long time now. The "preserve this folder's settings" option did it for me. Great piece of software.

    I actually prefer a single "view" mode to be default for all folders and only change temporarily.

    I wish many programs would have a "wizard" on first run asking for some basic options that users are likely to find annoying if they're different from what they're used to.

    As much as I like most KDE stuff, I hate the single click to run or open things, which is the default.
