 +====== Hidden Settings ======
  
 +While most setting can be configured using the menu and/or the [[preferences|Preferences dialog]], some of the settings are not visible in the interface because they are considered not general enough for the average user. The hidden settings need to be specifically enabled in the settings channel of Thunar to enable or change their functionality.
 +
 +Below a table of the settings and the commands on how to enable them.
 +
 +
 +===== Hidden Settings =====
 +
 +The table only contains settings that cannot be set using the interface.
 +
 +^ Property ^ Value Type ^ Description ^
 +| /​misc-always-show-tabs | bool | If the view tabs should always be visible. |
 +| /​misc-case-sensitive | bool | Determines whether the sorting should be done in a case-sensitive manner. The default is //false//. |
 +| /​misc-full-path-in-title | bool | Show the full directory path in the window title, instead of only the directory name. |
 +| /​misc-horizontal-wheel-navigates | bool | Controls whether the horizontal mouse wheel is used to navigate back and forth within a Thunar view, or whether it should be used for horizontal scrolling. |
 +| /​misc-image-size-in-statusbar | bool | Show the image size in the statusbar when a single image file is selected in the view. This is disabled by default because it causes relatively high I/O when changing the selection quickly. |
 +| /​misc-remember-geometry | bool | Whether Thunar should remember the size of windows and apply that size to new windows. If //true// the width and height are saved to ''​last-window-width''​ and ''​last-window-height''​. If //false// the user may specify the start size in '​last-window-width''​ and '​last-window-height''​. This option is enabled by default. |
 +| /​misc-small-toolbar-icons | bool | Use small icons on the toolbar instead of the default toolbar size. |
 +| /​misc-tab-close-middle-click | bool | Whether to close tabs when the tab label is clicked with the 2nd/​middle-mouse-button. |
 +
 +
 +===== Enable a Hidden Setting =====
 +
 +The quickest way to change a hidden settings is to run a command in the terminal-emulator.
 +
 +  xfconf-query --channel thunar --property /​property-name --create --type value-type --set new-value
 +
 +
 +So to enable the image size in the statusbar, run the following command:
 +
 +  xfconf-query --channel thunar --property /​misc-image-size-in-statusbar --create --type bool --set true
 +
 +All hidden settings are boolean values, so the value can either be ''​true''​ to enable the functionality or ''​false''​ to disable.
