View Tab Overview

The View tab is used to navigate directories and customize the look and feel of FTP Voyager and how directory listings are presented.

The View tab consists of 3 groups:

Navigation

Back

Navigates to the previous folder based on the browsing history of the active browser. Each click reverses the navigation by one directory change.

Forward

Navigates to the next folder based on the browsing history of the active browser. Each click advances the navigation by one directory change.

Up One Level

Navigates to the parent directory of the current folder in the active browser, up to the highest directory in the tree to which the user has access. This button becomes inaccessible when the user has navigated as high in the structure as possible.

History

Quickly navigates to previously selected folders in the active browser. To activate, click the arrow below the History icon to view a full history of previously selected folders, and click again to navigate to the selected folder.

Go to Folder

Use this option to navigate to a user-specified directory for the active file browser.

Windows

Style

FTP Voyager supports a wide range of visual styles to meet a variety of preferences.

Panes

Allows toolbars and panes to be hidden or shown within the active file browser.

File browsers contain these panes and toolbars:

Other Windows

Displays secondary panes in FTP Voyager, including the Transfer Queue Pane and the Open Files Pane.

Auto Layout

Use this option to setup a default layout of where local and remote browsers are placed when they are created.

This option is only available when the tabbed window layout is being used.

FTP Voyager supports the following automatic layout styles:

Local Left - Remote Right This layout style places a vertical divider in FTP Voyager and automatically sorts all local browsers on the left side, and all remote browsers on the right.

Management

Close

Closes the active file browser. This can be either a local browser open to a folder on the computer, or a remote browser that is connected to an FTP, FTPS, or SFTP site. If a remote browser is closed, then the connection to the server is disconnected. If the remote browser is currently performing a file transfer, the file transfer will continue even after the remote browser is closed.

Close All

Closes all file browsers. Other panes, like the Transfer Queue Pane and the Open Files Pane pane, will remain open.

List

Displays a list of file browsers that are open within FTP Voyager. This dialog displays all current local and remote browsers opened in FTP Voyager and allows a browser to be activated or closed.
