The File Manager is mainly made of 3 columns :
  • Left, Middle and Right :
    • The 2 first columns allow to get into the relevant places in folders to have interactions like : transfers, copy, move for checked elements, compare different elements etc.
    • The right column manages different actions and display a part of the tree of column 2.
  • (1) The left column : The preferred working column, because it's the one checked by default (small top left radio button) and also the preferred one to uncompress archives. The column top got 7 buttons :
    1. Top folder
    2. Column selector
    3. Symmetry : force the clicked column to become a model for the other column.
    4. Accept button! Check all columns at the same time! It's also possible to check with a click and also with the shift key held down and the mouse cursor hovering about the boxes.
    5. Uncheck all button.
    6. Button to select a folder to impose its images into the forumbar similar button context.
  • La (2) middle column that got just 2 buttons non mentioned in the first column :
    1. A button to exchange the columns.
    2. A button to reload all information, useful when files have changed under other circumstances
  • The (3) right column got :
    1. An action menu
    2. A text box to rename a checked file or a folder or to act on the names of a set of checked files (the 4 last instructions of "Basic File Manips")
    3. A local file browser with an "Ers" option (erase, overwrite) the previous file with the same name.
    4. A rights managers for files and directories : sometimes "Standard" most of the time "777" === full rights for local processes.
