How to set the default folder navigator to Nautilus after switching user from KDE?

Currently the Gnome Shell extension Places Status Indicator opens the locations in Dolphin and I want them to be opened in Nautilus.

The perils of switching DE is all those configs which still following the old DE.

It is usually configured in ~/.config/mimeapps.list but as you mention a switch from KDE - it could be anywhere.

Also check in ~/.local/share look for anything releated to mime definitions.
