Enable Nautilus Location Entry in Ubuntu

By default, this feature is disabled when you installed Ubuntu. The location entry in nautilus lets you use the location box to go to a folder by typing it instead of using to mouse to open one folder at a time until you reach your destination.

This can come in handy if you need to quickly go to a particular location in nautilus without individually opening each folder. 
 
To get started, press Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below to turn it on.
 
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences always-use-location-entry true
 

You should immediately see the change when you open nautilus.
