How to Navigate and Sort Files using File Manager
Navigate and Sort options are accessed via a drop-down menu on the File Manager toolbar. Shortcut keys are available for each item.
Remember: A former Plus or Premier subscription, or a current Base module subscription is required to use this feature. You must have the Allow full Remote Control permission enabled to use this feature.
Note: The host computer's files are displayed in the right frame, the client computer's in the left. Use the Tab key to switch between the two frames.
To access File Manager, click the File Manager icon on the Computers page or on the Central left menu once connected to the host.
