Files (gnome 3.6)


Using and describing Files (formerly Nautilus) is a real struggle. The menu bar now only contains the menu "Files". Other menus like Edit, View, Go, Bookmarks and Help, which could be found in the menu bar in Nautilus 3.4, are now placed on the toolbar in two dropdown menus: View options and Location options. And the only way to Copy/Move is by right-clicking on a file or folder. I find it far less useful (eg. no more F3), and not very logical. I have changed the section on the file manager to describe the new situation, but I am far from happy with it. I hope users will get a better file manager in future versions of Ubuntu.
Sorry for my moaning, just felt like sharing this with you :(
