File System Browser
EditRocket provides a file system browser that allows users to browse files and directories on the file system.
The file system browser can be shown or hidden via the View menu.
The file system browser can display files and browsers in single-level mode, where only one directory's contents are shown at a time, or the file system browser can display all files and directories in a tree structure. This setting can be toggled on and off with the Show Parent Directories and Hide Parent Directories icons.
The context menu of the file system browser provides many tools such as moving, renaming, copying, and deleting files, and tools such as head, tail, get section, get info, size, etc.
Listed below are descriptions of the available options on the file system browser:
Show Parent Directories:
This option will display files and directories in a tree-like view, with parent directories visible.
Hide Parent Directories:
This option will show one directory at a time. Opening a sub-directory hides the parent directory.
On Windows machine, if you would like to change the root driver for the file system browser, select it from the drive drop-down.
