how can i change options so i can see what folder i am in like /root without having to go to "choose folder", i prefer when it shows where i'm browsing and i been messing with settings and must have turned this off somewhere and not cannot find? sorry for another newb question just annoying the heck outa me. i also cannot open certain folders by left clicking an "open as admin" like programs, is their a way i can give permission to get into all folders i get crashes when using software that tries to access them and believe it may be a issue with some vm i try running...

thx

i see where i can change it in thunar but it doesnt apply to every folder after changing from tool bar

Sorry elliot,

I'm not exactly sure what you are talking about here.  Can you describe process you are trying and in what program.  I can't tell whether you are talking about using the file manager or something else.

Can you be more specific.  What 'software' are you trying to manually give root access to folders for and why?  Are you just trying to browse around the file system, or are you trying to change permissions on things for some reason?  What software is crashing and what are you in the middle of doing (or trying to do) when that happens?

hi sorry for not explaining better. when i open my home folder i see button that lead me to [home][folder] when i would like it to be more like windows or when i "choose the folder" on the gear icon all the way to the left it leaves me with a windows opening bar that i am more confortable with like /root/home whereas i can just type where i want to do and not use the icons like in windows. i believe i had this setup before but can't find a way to switch it back and find it incredibly annoying. :( it changes only when in thunar than when going to any other folder outside it switches back to the button icons showing what folders i am in.

hope you can help and if i can explain it better let me know i can try a lot harder but think this sums up the issues, im just way in favor of the windows type folder prompt were i can physically type what fold i want to go to /root/home/blah/blah instead of the [buttom] [botton]...

hope u follow? thanks so much

also like mentioned when in thunar i can set the option to allow me to see the folders /root/user/home by going to "view>location selector>tool bar style" and i remember maybe it was linux 1.0 but it allowed me to keep this setting on all folders which made it a lot easier for me to browse around i really dislike and am not getting used to the button setup over it. hope this helps explain. i used to be able to left click and "open termninal" and have a lot of settings that i can only use when i open thunar now which i really liked. the entire folder features seems to have been dumbed down on me?

thanks hope i explained things a little better, its all a bit confusing coming from xp so i hope im not wasting your time. :) basically i want to have all the same compact view/open terminal/non button browsing i get when i open any folder as i do with thunar. if that would be possible it would make my browsing around places way less complicated and easier to launch terminal in folders just by left clocking like i used to.
