Ubuntu – How to stop Thunar from being default file browser


On a relatively new installation, Thunar has become the default file browser simply by using it.

While I can open Nautilus easily enough, I'd rather it remained as the default file browser(especially when I choose to view files in dual pane).

How can I change my default file manager?

Although convoluted, I believe this link will help you from help.ubuntu.com:

Default File Manager
