Need a powerful file manager on Linux? Minimalism is so last decade. Functionality is king and it needn’t look ugly either. Look no further than Dolphin. KDE’s file manager and it’s an absolute cracker of a file manager. It’s nothing new as it’s been about a while.
My favourite feature, other than the split screen and integrated command line panel (so long as you install konsole as well as dolphin), is being able to pause multiple, individual in-flight IO operations. This is great if you’re making multiple copies to a USB stick and want to queue up the individual copy requests so they’ll ultimately complete quicker.
It’s quite simply the best file manager I’ve ever seen. All about functionality.
sudo apt-get install dolphin konsole
