It shows the contents (both files and directories) of the element selected from drop down list.


Sorting and Filtering

There is a provision for sorting and filtering columns in the grid which helps user to view only the specific content. For example, following screen shot displays a use case where ‘size’ column is filtered and ‘Modified On’ column is sorted in descending order.

User can go down the hierarchy by three ways:

  1. Click the folder in tree.
  2. Using ctrl +k on the row in the grid .
  3. Double click on the row.
