This should be the idea, yes. To guide the user to what and how to do next.

Sure, there is no problem on adding this feature on my suggestion. It
wouldn't destroy the flow.

Yes, I did my mockup and then sent it to Erick before the article went live.
Then Erick did his own modifications on my mockup.

I agree that it might look better. But this is because this is the layout we
have got used to with all other OSes using it this way. My top-down logic

Also, I do not agree on putting the newfolder/showallfiles under the main
gtk file selector.
