Keying Through Folders
When you open a folder in Windows, you can move up a level to the folder that contains the one you are exploring by pressing the Up One Level icon on the toolbar or by clicking on the folder in the Explorer view pane window. But, what if your mouse is locked, or you have a case of mouse aversion, simply use either of these methods:
- Backspace will move you up one level to the folder that contains the one you are exploring.
- Up or down arrow keys will move you up and down levels in the file tree.
- Right or left arrow keys will move you up and down levels in the file tree as well.
So the keyboard can be used to traverse through your folders. You can also use the TAB key to change from the directory view to the file view. To tag files, you can use one-click of the mouse, then use the Shift-Key to highlight a range of files in a folder or sub-folder. With Internet Explorer v4, you only need to point to the starting file and then use the Shift-Key with the mouse on the last file in the range you want to highlight. Then right-click on the highlighted range to copy, cut, or move to another folder.
Just click on the back arrow for the Home Page.
