The file manager has preview filter settings, which you may adjust via the Extras menu under More Options. It is compatible with such formats as system, network, cabinet, FTP and ZIP folders. You can use asterisks to view all possible formats. If you want fast access to the folders you use most often, then add them to Favorites.
The Color Filter allows you to select different colors for different types of items while the File Filter allows you to filter items quickly. Quick Link’s also allows you to access folders quickly.
You can choose different views, including thumbnail, tiles, details, list and large icons. In addition, you can magnify anything displayed on the screen.
