Group directories in file opening dialog

Using Chromium under Xubuntu 20.04.

Is it possible to group directories in the file open / file saving dialog of Chromium first?

I.e. I want all the dirs grouped, and then the files.

Right now they are just all mixed.

Applies to many other programs file open/save dialog too.

Re: Group directories in file opening dialog

That is a gtk setting. First close Chromium and then run:

gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser sort-directories-first true

Directories will then be sorted first.

Thasnks ToZ! Is this something I should ideally do in my .bashrc, or I set it once and it will persist after reboot?
