Use the command bar to have FileBoss display a specific folder entered either manually or by pasting from the clipboard. Press F8 and the following dialog will appear.
Typing or Pasting a Path to Go to
The command bar is used for much more than just going to specific folders. For all the details see The Command Bar.
Enter the full path of the folder. If you are pasting the path to a file from the clipboard there is no need to remove the filename as FileBoss will automatically display the folder that contains it.
But if the path you past is enclosed in quotation marks, remove the after pasting the text into the box.
You can also use Meta Folders in this dialog just as in any of the Find dialogs, e.g. the following three entries would produce the same result:
<my documents>\Fileboss Data
C:\Documents and Settings\FileBoss\FileBoss Data
Type in the path to a folder, drive or network storage area
Paste the path to a folder, drive or network storage area from the clipboard, e.g. "C:\Documents and Settings\FileBoss\My Documents\Letters & Labels"
This is handy when navigating to a folder with a path supplied by another application.
Meta Folders are short names for special folders used by Windows, e.g. the My Documents meta folder represents the actual path to the folder Windows uses to store you documents, typically something like:
"C:\Documents and Settings\FileBoss\My Documents".
Meta folders are enclosed in angle brackets and can be used like a normal path, e.g. <My Documents>\Letters.
Enter any bookmark to go directly to that folder. Bookmarks must be enclosed in angle brackets, e.g. <Pictures of Mom>.
Bookmarks are also treated as Meta Folders by FileBoss so you can insert a bookmark name in the angle brackets to specify the full path of the bookmark.
The following is a sample list of Meta Folders that FileBoss recognizes along with their short abbreviations.
To use a meta folder simply enclose its name or abbreviation between angle brackets, e.g. <Windows> or <W>.
You can also add on to Meta Folders such as <Windows>\system32 will display the system32 folder under your Windows folder.
