Nemo file Manager from Linux Mint, replace Nautilus in this issue (Nautilus is still available in the repositories). This switch was necessary to preserve the ability of the distribution to show desktop icons (this feature was removed in Nautilus). As came back plus some new (old) file Manager features such as split screen and a tree structure.
