    Double Clicking Paths in the File Manager

    Hi!

    Going back several versions of Fedor (with gnome), I used to be able to double click on th a current folder directory path in the file manager and the folder "buttons" would vanish and expose a text field that contained the absolute path to the current folder.. you could then alter the path and hit enter... it was a fast way to move around using the file manager.

    Since Fedora 25 (now on 27) I've been unable to do this.. is there a setting somewhere that enables this behaviour?

    Thanks,
    P.

    not sure since I don't use GNOME and haven't done so for many moons. you could use nemo instead of nautilus though
