Right-click on Location Bar to Open any Upper folder

Unlike any traditional file managers, Exp+ File Manager displays a folder path in location bar with a floating image button bar, consisting of buttons as many upper folders as current folder has. Simply put, this design is for you to left-click or right-click on any button to open an upper folder of current one. The effect of the mouse gestures varies according to panel status -- dual or single.

Dual-panel Mode

Step 1 Move cursor onto one of the buttons on floating image Location Bar, then a tip will be shown at bottom left corner immediately.



Step 2 Left-click or right-click the button.



Step 3

When right-clicking, the upper folder you choose to open will be opened in new tab of the opposite window. In our example, it will be opened in right panel.



When left-clicking, the upper folder you choose to open will be opened in current tab. In our example, it will be opened in left panel.




Single-window Mode

Step 1 the same as dual-window mode.



Step 2 the same as dual-window mode.



Step 3

When right-clicking, the upper folder you choose to open will be opened in new tab of current window.
