Linux (Ubuntu) tips and tricks

File manager (File explorer) with expandable tree

Often the simple "Files" app is preinstalled in Ubuntu.
Unfortunately, the expandable tree view is not setup by default. To show it, press the hamburger menu in the top right corner.

In the pop up window, press "Preferences".

Check "Allow folders to be expanded"

How to change terminal theme

Unfortunately, obvious way does not work. In Ubuntu terminal, we click hamburger menu in the top right corner -> Preferences -> General -> Theme Variant -> and nothing changes...
We select "Dark", however the terminal is still light..
Instead, we need to go to Hamburger menu in the top right corner -> Preferences -> Profile name (in our case "unnamed") in the bottom left menu -> Colors -> Built-in schemes. Voila!
