Public bug reported:

Affects: nautilus (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I'm not sure if you appreciate this kind of feedback, but here it

I wish nautilus would highlight the background when the mouse is not
over any file (see mockup #1). This would make it clearer to imagine
what would happen by right-clicking (i.e. whether the file's menu or the
parent folder's menu would pop up).

I also wish that files were highlighted with an outline, not just by
highliting the icon. (see mockup #2). The rationale is the same as

** Attachment added: "when the mouse is on the background"

** Attachment added: "when a file is selected"
