"SpaceFM also comes with 'find-as-you-type', which lets you quickly locate files in a folder, a feature that's partially broken in Nautilus since version 3. And if you want to find files on your system, SpaceFM has that covered too: it comes with a built-in file search tool which lets you search for files or find in files.

"SpaceFM can even handle the desktop (draw the wallpaper and display icons on the desktop). But before enabling this feature, you'll have to disable your current file manager for handling the desktop - for example, if you're using Nautilus 3, you can use GNOME Tweak Tool: Desktop > Have file manager handle the desktop to disable it. Then, in SpaceFM to to View > Preferences and on the 'Desktop' tab, enable 'Wallpaper' and select a background image. And finally, run SpaceFM using: 'spacefm --desktop'."
