"Open each folder in its own window" option not available in Nautilus in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

by Sourav Dey   Last Updated March 13, 2018 08:02 AM

Many of the users are suggesting to check the check box "Open each folder in its own window" in the Nautilus preference window under Behaviour tab for enabling the opening of all the Nautilus windows in the same parent window.

But I'm not getting the option in the same location. Its absent in my Nautilus preference window.


My OS information:

$ uname -a
Linux UbuntuPC 4.13.0-36-generic #40~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 16 23:25:58 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ lsb_release -a

$ gnome-shell --version
The program 'gnome-shell' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:

Can anyone please help me here?
