    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Question Typeable folder path on File manager

Hi all,

I use the default Gnome Files manager and I would like to be able to see a path of each folder then be able to click into it to copy/paste the path or to paste paths in. This is quite handy and a massive time saver for me. Is there any alternative file managers that are easy to add as a replacement or is there a plugin/setting to achieve this?
An example is Dolphin for KDE which I came from using on other distros.
Does anyone have any suggestions to achieve this?

If you right click on files you can choose "properties" which will show the path which you can copy. Alternately, you can click "open in terminal" which will give a path you can copy.

I can do that but hoping for a more seamless way to do it because I want to copy/paste the path into another window its not as easy as that doing that method.

One of my main gripes with Gnome is that they seem to go out of their way to remove features seemingly in a misguided attempt to provide a clean look. Try installing nemo, it is a fork of Nautilus by people that consider it to be "a catastrophe". It has a "Toggle Location Entry" that allows you to switch between text and button based paths.

Thank you I will give that one a go.
EDIT: Gave that a go and Nemo works nicely for what I want. How is the default file manager Gnome files when its so bare bones. Oh well easy enough to install Nemo and get it running.
