Ubuntu: Open folders with Google Chrome instead of the default file manager


I'd like to set Google Chrome as the default application for opening files on Ubuntu. How can I change the default file manager to Chrome, instead of Nautilus (which I believe is the default file browser?)


You have to edit the mime-types. Open /usr/share/applications/defaults.list search for directory.

Change the value nautilus.desktop to google-chrome.desktop

But Chrome wont provide you the rich features provided by Nautilus.
