Viewing files and folders

Viewing files and folders

You can view files and folders in the Files panel, whether they are associated with a Dreamweaver site or not. When you view sites, files, or folders in the Files panel, you can change the size of the viewing area, and, for Dreamweaver sites, you can expand or collapse the Files panel.

For Dreamweaver sites, you can also customize the Files panel by changing the view--either your local or remote site--that appears by default in the collapsed panel. Or, you can switch the content views in the expanded Files panel using the Always Show option (see Setting preferences for the Files panel).

To open or close the Files panel:

  • Select Window > Files.

To change the size of the view area in the expanded Files panel:

  • In the Files panel (Window > Files), with the panel expanded, do one of the following:
    • Drag the bar that separates the two views to increase or decrease the view area of the right or left pane.
    • Use the scroll bars at the bottom of the Files panel to scroll through the views’ contents.
    • In the site map, drag the arrow above a file to change the space between files.

To expand or collapse the Files panel (Dreamweaver sites only):

  • In the Files panel (Window > Files), click the Expand/Collapse button in the toolbar.This is a picture of the feature being described.

When the Files panel is collapsed it displays the contents of the local site, the remote site, or the testing server as a list of files. When expanded, it displays the local site and either the remote site or testing server. The Files panel can also display a visual site map of the local site.

To change the site view in Files panel, do one of the following (Dreamweaver sites only):

  • In the collapsed Files panel (Window > Files), select Local View, Remote View, Testing Server, or Map View from the Site View pop-up menu.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  • In the expanded Files panel (Window > Files), click the Site Files button (for the remote site), Testing Server button, or Site Map button in the toolbar.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

    If you click the Site Map button, you can choose to view the site map with site files or to view the site map only. For more information, see Viewing a site map.
