we can choose files and folders in thunar simply by typing their name, and by typing one character (a-zA-Z0-9) we can choose the first file or folder that its name starts with the typed character. can you expand this feature to icons/folders/files on desktop. we're getting sick of using mouse or arrow keys to choose something on desktop.
