I posted question 62034 asking if/how I can change the default behaviour in PCManFM (Lubuntu's default file manager) from "open in new tab" to "open in new window".
I gave a lot of context and even a crude screencast because people asked for clarification. (eg. "Right-clicking and choosing 'open in new window'" isn't acceptable because I'm trying to save my mother the hassle of doing it, without fail, every single time she opens a folder... which is what she currently does.)
It's now been closed for being "too localized" despite being far more generally-applicable than a lot of the questions I've seen left open.
As I'm quite skilled in Linux use in general and I've never cared for GNOME or Unity-based desktops, my reputation is almost exclusively over on StackOverflow where people ask more questions I can answer.
How can someone with only 240 reputation on AskUbuntu dispute an erroneous "closed as too localized"?
