On the default installation of Ubuntu 11.04, if I press Windows key + 1, a Nautilus windows will open. If I press it again, it just brings the one Nautilus already opened to focus. I want to actually open a second instance. Is any key combination to achieve this?

Does Ctrl+N do the trick? (When you're in Nautilus, that is) – slhck May 17 '11 at 20:18
@slhck: Yeah it does, but I wanted to directly opening a new Nautilus from elsewhere. – julio.g May 18 '11 at 0:50

Windows + Shift + 1 should fix it ;)
