Open in folder feature

My Ubuntu 16.04 OS has a neat feature. If I search for a specific file when it finds the file I can right-click it and select 'Open in folder'. However, I recently installed 12.04 (yes I know its EOL) and I noticed it doesn't seem to have this feature. Does anyone know if it is possible for me to add that functionality to my 12.04 system?

I was just using the search bar at the top of the file browser menu.

What file browser / version? Is the same browser / version installed on the 12.04 system?
