FileBoss will display one or more tabs with each tab displaying a folder in the file system, a virtual folder, or an error / report log.
Typically, a tab will display the navigation tree in the left panel and the contents of the active folder in the right panel.
Five ways to create a tab displaying a file system folder
- Click on one of the drive buttons and then hold down the ctrl key while clicking on the folder to display.
FileBoss always shows the root folder and displays up to the last ten folders that you visited and stayed on for a while.
If you just click on a folder in the list it will change the current tab to view that folder.
- Click the New button on the main toolbar.
This will create a new tab with the same contents as the current, or most recent, Explorer tab.
- Click a folder from the dropdown list of the New button .
Which systems folders are displayed depends on the version of window you are using and your configuration.
Note the you can add the current folder to this list and manage those folders with the last three options on the menu.
- Right click over a folder in a tab (either in the right or left panel) and select the Open in New Tab option.
If the Open in New Tab option is not displayed select the FileBoss menu option at the top of the menu first.
- Select New > Explorer Tab from the main menu.
Two ways to create a tab displaying a Virtual Folder
- Select one of the New > Dynamic Virtual Folder > options from the main menu.
- Perform a search which will show the results in a new Virtual Folder.
In addition, FileBoss will sometimes open a new Virtual Folder to display files that caused errors when copying or renaming files (along with reasons and possible fixes).
