Ubuntu Nautilus Preferences

You can set preferences for your Nautilus file manager in the Preferences dialog box, which you access by choosing Edit Preferences. The Preferences dialog box shows a main screen with a side pane with several configuration entries, including Views, Behavior, Display, List Columns, Preview, and Media. You use these tabs to set the default display properties for your Nautilus file manager.

• The Views tab allows you to select how files are displayed by default, such as the list or icon view.

• Behavior lets you choose how to select files, manage the trash, and handle scripts, as well as whether to use the Browser view as the default.

• Display lets you choose what added information you want displayed in a icon caption, such as the size or date.

• The List Columns tab lets you choose both the features to display in the detailed list and the order in which to display them. In addition to the already-selected Name, Size, Date, and Type, you can add Permissions, Group, MIME Type, and Owner.

• The Preview tab lets you choose whether you want small preview content displayed in the icons, such as beginning text for text files.

• The Media tab lets you select default applications for certain media, such as music CDs or blank DVD.
