Keep it under Tools. That's the best place for it.


Better choice than mine.

I agree with this one.

In traditional applications, both "File" and "Edit" refer to the current
document, which means that, in a file manager, "Edit" is expected to
apply to the selected files and as a way to make Ctrl+F "find in current
folder only" search discoverable via the GUI.

(Which is why I think it's incredibly stupid of the GNOME devs to try to
convince everyone to put application-wide Preferences there. They're
letting the literal meaning of the menu's title blind them to the
underlying concept which it's supposed to represent.)

As for the File menu, that's for creating/opening/closing documents (in
the case of a file manager, tabs, windows, or blank files). Putting a
search function in there makes about as much sense as putting it under
View because you want to "View" the results of your search or putting it
under "Go" because you'll probably want to go to one of the results
after you find it.

If it's the sparseness of the Tools menu that you're concerned about,
why not allow users to add custom entries to it?
