Each File Manager window (also called a view) shows the contents of a single folder.
If you are not familiar with hierarchical file systems, see "Basic File System Concepts".
You can change to another folder in any of the following ways:
Double-click a folder icon.
Select a folder icon and choose Open In Place from the Selected menu to open the folder in the current window, or Open New View from the Selected menu to open it in a new window.
Choose the Open In Place or Open New View command from the folder's pop-up menu (displayed by pressing Shift+F10 or mouse button 3).
Double-click a folder in the iconic path to change the view to that folder.
Select (click) the current folder line to change it into a text field. Type the name of the path you want and then press Return.
In the current folder line, double-click a segment of the current path. For example, if the current folder is /users/fredj/.dt/types, you can change to the /users/fredj folder by double-clicking the word fredj.
Choose Go To from the File menu. Enter the folder's full path name in the Destination Folder text field of the Go To window.
Choose Go Up from the File menu
This procedure opens a terminal emulator window with the same current folder as the File Manager window. This is a quick way to type a command to affect the contents of the folder you are currently viewing.
Choose Open Terminal from the File menu.
You must have execute permission for a folder before you can open a Terminal window from it.
