Replace File Manager

I am trying to replace the default file manager with Nemo. I have it installed and I have run commands from threads like this with no success.

They ask me to

sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/nautilus-autostart.desktop

But the file that opens is empty/not there. Am I missing something very obvious here?

That is a command to restore Nautilus.
Try this post, instead:

Thank you, unfortunately though, that didn't seem to work.
I'm basing this off if I open a dialog box in Discord to select an image for example, it shows up with the below.

This looks like the built in file manager to me. But perhaps that can't be changed?

Oh, that is an FM Modal and cannot be changed.

Ah damn, that's a shame. At least I know.
