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?

What program were you using to search?

I was just using the search bar at the top of the file browser menu.
# 4  
What file browser / version? Is the same browser / version installed on the 12.04 system?
