File List view

All files and folders of the current working directory are shown within the File List view of the browser. The file list view has many features that are used to manage the underlying file system. One feature is providing a valid drag and drop location for file paths. Dragging a folder from the Folders pane and dropping it into another valid drop location for file paths produces either a move, copy, or transfer operation. Other features include:

  • Creating a new directory
  • Deleting a directory
  • Renaming a directory
  • Opening a directory to view its contents
  • Viewing the properties of a directory
  • Transferring a directory to another local or remote location
  • and more...
