How to enable 2-panel view in Nautilus

Yesterday, almost by chance I had a revelation: I found out how to activate 2-panel view in Nautilus. This view is much more comfortable when it comes to copying and moving files easily. 🙂

Just press F3.

    I agree. There is no way to do that at the moment. 🙁 Greetings! Paul.

    And the same thing happened to me too. I wanted to rename a file and I was wrong. I hit F3 and saw the 2-panel view.
    It's the best I've ever seen.

    Just as a note, it might be worth commenting that when you press F3 again, the window that "stays" is the one we currently have selected (which, in case we get confused, is the one with a white background ...). A greeting!

    What I am looking for is a way to make it permanent ... since it is really useful most of the time. It would not hurt to save the press F3
