Toolbar Buttons and Functions
This section covers the functions of the Toolbar buttons. Please refer to the Menu Commands Section for the functions of the individual Menu functions.
The ClikView Toolbar offers quick access to many functions while working in File Manager along with a History List for quickly returning to previously opened files. The functions of the Toolbar buttons are described below in the order the buttons appear and all ClikView toolbars use mouse-over pop-up labels for easy identification:
The left pointing hand will display a list of the last previously opened drives/folder/subfolders and/or files throughout your ClikView File Manager sessions. You can click on any of the listed items to instantly return to that display.
Once you have moved backward using the previous list - the forward hand will become active allowing you to return to the most recent displays.
The Up arrow Folder button will move you up the file/subfolder/folder/drive/system tree.
Map network drive - if a network supported by Windows is installed, this menu option opens a dialog box to connect network drives. This dialog does not belong to ClikView, but is specific to the network.
Disconnect network drive - this menu option is only shown if such a network is present and if this network supports the disconnect dialog. This dialog does not belong to ClikView, but is specific to the network.
Cut - will remove the currently selected item(s) and place in Clipboard.
