But it is not a bug. It is a feature you miss.

There are actually many areas in linux desktop that are hacky and unfinished, but this is not one of them. It would be helpful to have that feature, yes, but I never missed it, mostly because of shortcuts in thunar

strg + 1 normal thumbnail view

strg + 2 detailed list.

Sure !

I see it as very basic feature for a modern desktop/window manager.

Yes, you do. But apparently the majority of thunar users does not ... so it does not make the whole linux desktop useless.

Never said it was useless, it was a feeling of using an unpolished product.

But that is a matter of perspective. I felt enraged and could not believe that you cannot change the windows 10 file explorer to a dark theme. Maybe you can now, they advertised this amazing feature as soon to come, but I don't know as I do not have to use that anymore.

So I prefer thunar over windows file manager, or worse, the filemanager on my chromebook any day. So it is very polished software for my use case, even though not perfect.
