Working with files in the Files panel

Working with files in the Files panel

You can open or rename files; add, move, or delete files; or refresh the Files panel after you make changes.

For Dreamweaver sites, you can also determine which files (on either the local or remote site) have been updated since the last time they were transferred. For information on synchronizing the local site with the remote site, see Synchronizing the files on your local and remote sites.

To open a file:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select a site, server, or drive from the pop-up menu (where the current site, server, or drive appears).
  2. Navigate to the file you want to open.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Double-click the file’s icon.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the file’s icon, then select Open.

Dreamweaver opens the file in the Document window.

To create a new file or folder:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select a file or folder.

    Dreamweaver will create the new file or folder inside the currently selected folder, or in the same folder as the currently selected file.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), then select New File or New Folder.
  3. Enter a name for the new file or folder.
  4. Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Macintosh).

To delete a file or folder:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select the file or folder you want to delete.
  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), then select Delete.

To rename a file or folder:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select the file or folder you want to rename.
  2. Do one of the following to activate the name of the file or folder:
    • Click in the filename, pause, then click again.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the file’s icon, then select Rename.
  3. Type the new name over the existing name.
  4. Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Macintosh).

To move a file or folder:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select the file or folder you want to move.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Copy the file or folder, then paste it in a new location.
    • Drag the file or folder to a new location.
  3. Refresh the Files panel to see the file or folder in its new location.

To refresh the Files panel, do one of the following:

  • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) any file or folder, then select Refresh.
  • (Dreamweaver sites only) Click the Refresh button in the Files panel toolbar (this option refreshes both panes).
