i've searched here, reddit, launchpad and google but couldn't find the information. I wanted to know what shortcuts are available for Files. Checked keyboard shortcuts settings but none was listed. Appreciate if someone can point me to where it is.

    There are one or two more which are not handled by this part of the code e.g. "F2" for rename, "Ctrl-L" for focus path bar, "Space" for activate. An accessible list would be a good idea. Feb 13 '17 at 9:21
  • Is there a way to show/hide the sidebar without editing dconf directly?
