Having it in the side pane is somewhat useful but still requires extra clicking to see directory contents. :( I experimented with Nautilus on XFCE but it trashes the theme styling.  There may be a way to fix that but I'd rather work with native XFCE apps anyway if possible.  Any chance of this feature being integrated into Thunar? Or can a UCA accomplish this? Sorry for the very basic questions . . . just trying to get a foothold on the new learning curve.  Thanks.

What do you mean by 'trashing the theme styling'. Are you sure you have 
a GTK3 compatible theme ? (like Greybird [1])

You can use Nautilus within Xfce as the default file manager just fine. 
 From my experience, if you have Xfce 4.10 or Xubuntu 12.04 (which ships 
Xfce 4.8), it won't steal the desktop from xfdesktop (that is, manage 
the desktop on top of the Xfce desktop !)

And if you have Xfce 4.10, opening a directory on the desktop will bring 
Nautilus, as long as it is the default file manager (it can be set in 
the settings manager => Preferred Applications => Utilities).
