The \setting{File Browser} lets you navigate through the files and directories on your \dap, entering directories and executing the default action on each file. To help differentiate files, each file format is displayed with an icon. The \setting{Database Browser}, on the other hand, allows you to navigate through the music on your player using categories like album, artist, genre, etc. You can select whether to browse using the \setting{File Browser} or the \setting{Database Browser} by selecting either \setting{Files} or \setting{Database} in the \setting{Main Menu}. If you choose the \setting{File Browser}, the \setting{Show Files} setting lets you select what types of files you wish to view. See \reference{ref:ShowFiles} for more information on the \setting{Show Files} setting. \note{The \setting{File Browser} allows you to manipulate your files in ways that are not available within the \setting{Database Browser}. Read more about \setting{Database} in \reference{ref:database}. The remainder of this section deals with the \setting{File Browser}.} \opt{ondio}{ Unlike the Archos Firmware, Rockbox provides multivolume support for the MultiMediaCard, this means the \dap{} can access both data volumes (internal memory and the MMC), thus being able to for instance, build playlists with files from both volumes. In the \setting{File Browser} a new directory will appear as soon as the device has read the content after inserting the card. This new directory's name is generated as \fname{}, and will behave exactly as any other directory on the \dap{}. } \opt{h10,h10_5gb}{\note{ If your \dap{} is a MTP model, the Music directory where all your music is stored may be hidden in the \setting{File Browser}. This may be fixed by either either changing its properties (on a computer) to not hidden, or by changing the \setting{Show Files} setting to all. }} \subsection{\label{ref:controls}File Browser Controls} \begin{table} \begin{btnmap}{}{} \ActionStdPrev{}/\ActionStdNext{} & Go to previous/next item in list.

To access the \setting{Context Menu}, position the selector over a file or directory and access the context menu with \ActionStdContext{}. \note{The \setting{Context Menu} is a context sensitive menu. If the \setting{Context Menu} is invoked on a file, it will display options available for files. If the \setting{Context Menu} is invoked on a directory, it will display options for directories.} The \setting{Context Menu} contains the following options (unless otherwise noted, each option pertains both to files and directories): \begin{description} \item [Playlist.] Enters the \setting{Playlist Submenu} (see \reference{ref:playlist_submenu}). \item [Playlist Catalog.] Enters the \setting{Playlist Catalog Submenu} (see \reference{ref:playlist_catalog}). \item [Rename.] This function lets the user modify the name of a file or directory. \item [Cut.] Copies the name of the currently selected file or directory to the clipboard and marks it to be cut'. \item [Copy.] Copies the name of the currently selected file or directory to the clipboard and marks it to be copied'. \item [Paste.] Only visible if a file or directory name is on the clipboard. When selected it will move or copy the clipboard to the current directory. \item [Delete.] Deletes the currently selected file. This option applies only to files, and not to directories. Rockbox will ask for confirmation before deleting a file. Press \ActionYesNoAccept{} to confirm deletion or any other key to cancel. \item [Delete Directory.] Deletes the currently selected directory and all of the files and subdirectories it may contain. Deleted directories cannot be recovered. Use this feature with caution! \item [Open with.] Runs a viewer plugin on the file. Normally, when a file is selected in Rockbox, Rockbox automatically detects the file type and runs the appropriate plugin. The \setting{Open With} function can be used to override the default action and select a viewer by hand. For example, this function can be used to view a text file even if the file has a non-standard extension (i.e., the file has an extension of something other than \fname{.txt}). See \reference{ref:Viewersplugins} for more details on viewers. \item [Create Directory.] Create a new directory in the current directory on the disk. \item [Properties.] Shows properties such as size and the time and date of the last modification for the selected file. If used on a directory, the number of files and subdirectories will be shown, as well as the total size. \opt{recording}{ \item [Set As Recording Directory.] Save recordings in the selected directory. } \item [Add to Shortcuts.] Adds a link to the selected item in the \fname{shortcuts.link} file. If the file does not already exist it will be created in the root directory. Note that if you create a shortcut to a file, Rockbox will not open it upon selecting, but simply bring you to it's location in the \setting{File Browser}. \end{description} \subsection{\label{sec:virtual_keyboard}Virtual Keyboard} \screenshot{rockbox_interface/images/ss-virtual-keyboard}{The virtual keyboard}{} This is the virtual keyboard that is used when entering text in Rockbox, for example when renaming a file or creating a new directory. \opt{IRIVER_H100_PAD,IRIVER_H300_PAD,RECORDER_PAD,GIGABEAT_PAD,SANSA_E200_PAD,% SANSA_C200_PAD,MROBE100_PAD}{ \begin{table} \begin{btnmap}{}{} \ActionKbdLeft{}~/ \ActionKbdRight{}~/ \ActionKbdUp{}~/ \ActionKbdDown & Move about the virtual keyboard (moves the solid cursor) \\ % \ActionKbdCursorLeft{} or \ActionKbdCursorRight & Move the line cursor within the text line \\ % \ActionKbdSelect & Inserts the selected keyboard letter at the current cursor position \\ % \ActionKbdAbort & Exits the virtual keyboard without saving any changes \\ % \opt{RECORDER_PAD}{ \ButtonFOne & Shifts between the upper case, lower case and accented keyboards \\ } % \ActionKbdDone & Exits the virtual keyboard and saves any changes \\ \ActionKbdBackSpace & Deletes the character before the line cursor \\ % \opt{IRIVER_H100_PAD,IRIVER_H300_PAD,GIGABEAT_PAD,MROBE100_PAD}{ \ActionKbdMorseInput & Enters Morse input mode \\ \ActionKbdMorseSelect & Tap to select a character in Morse input mode \\ } \end{btnmap} \end{table} } \opt{IPOD_4G_PAD,IPOD_3G_PAD,IRIVER_H10_PAD,IAUDIO_X5_PAD}{ \textbf{Picker area} \begin{table} \begin{btnmap}{}{} \ActionKbdUp/\ActionKbdDown & Move about the virtual keyboard.
