If I know the name of the file I'm searching, can I open its folder with Synapse?

Asked by Henno on 2012-08-02

I know that somewhere on my hard drive is xubuntu-something.iso file. I want to burn that file. I want to use Synapse to locate it so that I can start burning it. When I type the name of the file into the search box, Synapse quickly autocompletes the file name. I tried clicking everywhere but I could only "execute" the file, meaning that it was opened as an archive and it's contents was shown in file manager.

I'd like to just open the containing folder. Just as I would do when I download a file with Firefox or Chrome.
