Thunar - Fast switch between side pane Tree and Shortcuts?

I use a NAS with multiple shares for data, and almost nothing is stored on client machines.
The shares are organised with a reasonable taxonomy.

So I find myself swithcing frequently between side pane options of Tree and Shortcuts, depending on the task in hand.
If I'm working between shares, the shortcuts view is best. If I'm using or re-organising files within a share, the tree view is much more powerful.

(The one thing that stops me from just using tree view all the time, is that it never shows the share mounts in alphabetical order, the order is different and random on every boot - and it makes me twitch)


So I flip between the two several times a day.

Is it possible to have a button in the toolbar that will switch the view with a single click? Or least favourable - is there a keyboard shortcut?
Thanks smile

Oh and a follow-on question, if I'm using a file chooser, say from a chrome download - Thunar always comes up in shortcut mode, is it possible to change that also?

Button no, shortcut yes. By default, Ctrl+B for shortcuts mode, Ctrl+E for Tree (in fact they are also toggles on whether to display the sidebar or not).

Do you mean when you select the "Show in folder" option in Chrome? For me it uses the current Thunar setting.

What version of Thunar are you using?
