[Solved]Thunar start directory

Post#1 by itrukrakso » 04 Aug 2023, 18:24

hi,

When i start thunar it shows the home folder by default.
I would like to show another folder.
Despite extensive search I have not found a solution.
Maybe someone here can help.

Thanks

Edit the launcher.
For example - thunar will launch in 'Downloads'

Hi,
thanks donald,
so is quite simple after all, only I was looking in the settings of Thunar itself.

Available option in the settings of Thunar is:
Restore tabs on startup (Thunar 4.18)
You have mind and feelings. Be wise and clever.

Hi,
thanks tome,
I was aware of this option, thunar starts with the last opened folder.
I always wanted to start thunar with a specific folder and donald's suggestion is the best solution.

Thanks
