Does SUSE Have Something Comparable to Windows Explorer?

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Q:
I really like the way Windows Explorer has the nice trees of folders and files. Does SUSE have something like that?

A:
Yes.

In Gnome, you follow : Program -> System -> File Manager -> Browse Filesystem That should display something similar to Windows Explorer. If there is no side menu, simply press F9, then click on the "Information" drop-down menu which appears after pressing F9, and select "Tree". I'd recommend dragging the "Browse Filesystem" icon up to your main toolbar on your desktop for easy access.

In KDE, click on the icon that looks like a blue house. In the resulting window, click on the same "blue house" icon in the list of icons down the left-hand side of the window.
