Bookmark Locations in File Manager For Quicker And Easier Access

Ubuntu is an amazing operating system and Canonical has been stacking up the OS with new features at the back of every new release. Most of these geared towards making life easier for all users some of whom are newbies.

One of these handy tools is allowing users to bookmark locations in the file manager making it quick to access anytime you want to visit the same location again same as you do with web pages.
There are other Linux apps you can download to do the same thing but in this quick tutorial, we will walk you through two simple ways to create bookmarks in your file manager and easily manage them.

First Option

Open the file directory and head over to the location that you want to Bookmark. It is important to note that you can only Bookmark a location when you are in the file directory itself. When you are in the file explorer directory hover to the Global menu to look for the bookmark icon, click on it and it will give you an option where you can add the current location as a bookmark.


Second Option

This option is more straightforward and only requires users to press the key combination of Ctrl+D while in the location that they want to Bookmark to have it saved in the Bookmark list.
Every location that is bookmarked is listed in the sidebar on the left and your entire bookmark list — like on the Quick Access menu in Windows — can be accessed by pressing the key combination of Ctrl+b. You can use the same key combination to locate and manage bookmarks if you feel that you have too many of them on the list and some are becoming redundant.
