Backspace Key not working as a Back button in Nautilus 3.6.2 – How to Fix This

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to make the Backspace key go back in Nautilus 3.6.2, like it was in the old Nautilus file managers.

In Nautilus 3.6.2, there are two new shortcuts:

  • to go forwards, hold Alt + the Right Arrow Key
  • to go backwords, hold Alt + the Left Arrow Key

  keyboard

To make Nautilus 3.6.2 go back like on old times, with the Backspace key, do this:

$ echo '(gtk_accel_path "/ShellActions/Up" "BackSpace")' >> ~/.config/nautilus/accels

This is it. Enjoy.
