[english] How-to change your default file manager in Gnome

Em português aqui.

For some odd reason, my default file manager has been changed from Nautilus to Dolphin.

After wandering around the interwebz I found some solutions which involved deleting files.

I prefered not to delete files nor rename them as I intended only to change a simple setting and that sounded as overkill.

Turns out the solution is rather simple and coherent with the way you change any other program association: you right-click on a file [or, in this case, folder], select "Properties", go to the tab "Open With" and there you select "File Manager" (or "Open Folder", can't tell you for sure since I'm with Portuguese locale, but check the pic below if in doubt) instead of "Dolphin".
