Nautilus is the interface to your filesystem allowing you to navigate through, access, and otherwise manage your files in GNOME. As simple a task as Nautilus was built to perform, it is still impressively simple to use while providing a full set of features including file previews, different folder views, and support for a number of protocols to browse non-local filesystems.

Nautilus is the default file manager in GNOME, but there are a number of alternatives available such as Dolphin which is the KDE counterpart. While some prefer other file managers, basic users should be more than happy with Nautilus.
