Here are two helpful tips for Nautilus, the first tip shows how to change the location Bar in Nautilus to the text mode, and the second one shows how to divide a nautilus screen in two parts.



1- Change the location Bar in Nautilus to the text mode


Open the terminal and copy this command :

gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry true

This will be the result, the menu bar is in text mode.

If you want to switch back, copy this command to the terminal


gconftool-2 --type=Boolean --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry false
 

Second method ( Thanks to Andrew) : Instead of using the commands above you can toggle between the text mode / breadcrumbs Nautilus location bar using Ctrl + L , the default location bar must not be text mode or else this seems not to work.

2- Divide the panel in Nautilus into two parts (Double panel)

If you want to divide a nautilus panel into two parts Open the folder you want to divide and press F3, see the result in the screenshots bellow:

After you press F3
