3. File Management > 3.1. Using Konqueror to Manage Files

Using Konqueror to Manage Files

Though there are dozens of file managers in Linux, this chapter only covers one: Konqueror, the same program you just learned how to use for web browsing. Konqueror can work in two different ways—as a web browser and as a file manager—depending on how you launch, or start, the program.

Since you already know a bit about Konqueror, it should be easy to learn how to use it as a file manager, so let’s just dive in and get started. To open Konqueror as a file manager, just double-click the Home icon on your desktop. (As you might guess, it’s the icon that looks like a little house.)

Using profiles to control Konqueror

Note that this is a different way to open Konqueror. In Chapter 2, you started the program by clicking the Konqueror icon on the kicker panel, which opened up Konqueror as a web browser. Clicking the Home icon on the desktop opens Konqueror as a file manager. Each icon loads a different Konqueror profile, which determines how the program behaves. You’ll learn how to create a new profile and load it from an icon later in this chapter.
