Operating on files

You can choose the files that you want to process and perform various operations on the selection.  Pick the operation you want from the toolbar or from a pop-up menu you can activate by right-clicking the list. Some items may be hidden or disabled, depending on file type or location, or number of items selected.



You can choose one of these operations:


Explore folder (opens Windows Explorer for the folder)
Open folder (opens built-in folder browser)
Open an archive (opens the archive in which the file is stored)
View file (opens the file with built-in viewer or external program)
View the file's properties (using Windows property sheet)
Open file (opens the file by using the associated program)
Rename file (regular files only)
Delete file(s). The files are either moved to the Recycle bin or deleted immediately. If a file is stored in an archive, it will be removed from it, but other files in the archive left intact.Move the file(s) to an archive folder, e.g. for burning to CD
Remove from list (no reason for further actions)
Mark / Unmark files (various options)
Get a short message on how to select many files
Copy shortcut to clipboard (full file name including path)
Copy location to clipboard (only path and name of archive file, if applicable)


How are files deleted?


If you delete files from the list, you have the option to delete them immediately, or via the Recycle bin.  This setting is found under the Operations tab in the Settings dialog.


Recovery of deleted files


If you opted to delete files to the Recycle bin, then you can recover files if you change your mind. Usually, you just right-click the Recycle bin on your desktop, and select "Open" or "Explore" to browse recently deleted files. But, since there are many version of Recycle bins available, it is outside of scope of this manual to explain in more detail how it is done.  Please refer to the Windows help or the appropriate documentation for more info.
