Nautilus window properties

I'm using FC1 right now and have tried FC2 before making the switch complete. One thing I have a problem with and can't find the answer to is that the Nautilus windows always open new windows when changing directories.

I know this sounds trivial, but I haven't found an option that lets you toggle between sticking with one window and multiple. If anyone knows how to change it, please let me know.

The other problem with Nautilus, is how to get the sidebar with the icons and the directory name on the left. To give you an idea, I like the look of the FC1 Nautilus browser.

Any help would be greatly apprectiated. Thanks in advance.

You can also change that in Hat > System Tools > Configuration Editor > Apps > Nautilus > Preferences.

Ignore the "This is not the best way to do this error" you get when you load up config editor.
