Linux Quick Tip #4: Nautilus Shotcuts

Nautilus Shortcuts are Handy

If you are a regular Linux user like me, you probably would have had to deal with Nautilus many times in a day. Here are a few quick keyboard shortcuts that will save seconds of your life.

  • Open a location - Ctrl+L
  • Open Parent folder - Ctrl+Up
  • Arrow keys navigate around current folder.
You can also customise the file icons with 'emblems'. These are little graphical overlays that can be applied to individual files or groups. Open the Properties menu item of your selected file/folder and click on the icon to select any image you want.
