To access remotely with fish or sftp protocols would be fine. The preview of each file on another side panel (which can be disabled if not like) without having to double click on each of them would also be great.

is that when I click to subfolders of a disk or home folders, music, downloads etc Deepin the files closed without further.
which could be the problem, is there any way to reset or re-install?

I really like the new Deepin File Manager 1.7. It is one of the best file managers in any distro. One feature I would like to see is a common view for all folders. Dolphin has esta feature.

I prefer my folders to sort all my files by type. Adding function esta Along With the other suggestions would put Deepin File Manager right there with Dolphin. In a way, it is as good Already. It just needs a few tweaks to push it over the top.

I just downloaded Deepin 15.5 Beta and I'm looking forward to trying it. A few reviews Have me concerned, but it is beta. I will not pass judgment just yet.

15.5 Deepin was closing in on near perfection. I would hate for the momentum to be lost by aimless development.

Do not change things Just Because you can. As long as the developers remember - If it is not broke, do not fix it - Deepin will continue to lead the pack in innovation.

Hi there michael biller michael biller, Welcome to the community, it's a great to have you around. I also love Deepin Files and like you I would love to see features: such as "Common View" but I think it'll take some time before we see advanced features Such as These make it into the OS, but it will get there though, I'm sure.

I think you meant 15.6? Yeah it's still a little rough around the edges but I think it'll turn out to be a great release.
