B.1.GUI-based file managers

A commonly used file manager for KDE is called Konqueror; it can also be used as, among other things, a web browser.

In KDE 4, however, Konqueror has been replaced with Dolphin as the default file manager, although Konqueror can still be used as a file manager in KDE 4.

The file manager for GNOME is called Nautilus.


Be aware, though, that you will be able to work much more efficiently with the file system through the shell. Nonetheless, the file manager can be useful sometimes.
