The file manager in Gnome is nautilus. We check out the preferences of Nautilus.

We have installed a package to provide us with the option to open folders as administrator.
Sometimes you need to change contents in a protected part of your computer.

We installed extra nautilus packages like compare folders or files with meld.

But also manipulation of images.

You can install more packages for nautilus. Pamac can help you search for extra functionality you may need on your system.

You can change images with the image tools installed and we show you how.

There are other things you can install like nautilus-terminal. That is up to you.

You can use pamac again to uninstall the installed packages or even better put a hashtag before the installation line in the scripts and it will not be installed next time.
