Orion/Documentation/User Guide/Reference/Navigator page
The Navigator page is your primary location for browsing and manipulating files in Orion. The page can be focused on any folder, including the root folder associated with each Orion user. The current folder being displayed is shown in the banner, with a breadcrumb showing the complete path to the folder.
The banner also includes the navigation drop down menu (the "hamburger") button and the options drop down menu button.
The tool bar has two menu buttons. The New File and New Folder commands will operate on the selected folder and can be found under the New drop down menu. Commands that operate on selected files and folders in the list will appear in the Actions drop down menu.
Some commands are also accessible using the keyboard. Type '?' to display a list of available commands:
