How to get to Nautilus preferences on Fedora 26

I installed Fedora 26 and would like to change the default behaviour of file manager to "open with one click".

I have found that Nautilus preferences had to be changed but I couldn't get to them. There is no icon on the left side of the bar, there is no such option in the right-click menu or in the hamburger menu on the right.

I do not avoid command line so I'm open to any proposal.

There is an application menu called Files next to Activities in the top panel on the left when Files/Nautilus is open (not in the file manager window, but at the very top left of the screen). Open it, the option you want is the first one under Preferences - Behaviour.

Oh, I missed that. I now am ashamed. Thank you very much for help.

No reason to be ashamed. Everybody misses something sometime. The application menu is used by Gnome applications, but many others do not, Firefox being an important exception, which only has Quit in that menu.
