Convenient keyboard shortcuts have been introduced to enhance the usability of Hepsia's File Manager

May 4, 2023
The File Manager in the Hepsia Control Panel has been made even more user-friendly with the introduction of shortcut keys.

These keyboard shortcuts allow for efficient file organization and management, similar to what you'd experience on your computer.

The File Manager now supports common shortcut keys for tasks like searching and copying/pasting, similar to those found in word processors.

The File Manager's shortcut keys

Here are the keyboard shortcuts available when using the File Manager:

Search for files: By pressing the Ctrl+F shortcut keys, you can perform quick searches within the file and folder listings of a particular directory. When you activate Ctrl+F in the File Manager interface, an input field will appear, allowing you to enter your desired search term. This search is dynamic, meaning that as you type, the matching results will immediately display. This feature enables you to filter directories and files based on specific keywords.

You can also use convenient shortcut keys like Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and paste files and folders between different directories. To do this:

  • 1. Select the file(s) or folder(s) you want to copy or cut.
  • 2. Press Ctrl+C to copy or Ctrl+X to cut the selected items.
  • 3. Navigate to the destination directory where you want to paste these copied or cut items.
  • 4. Press Ctrl+V to complete the action and paste the items.

These shortcut keys can also be used to copy and paste files or folders between directories in separate windows, allowing you to switch quickly between the source and destination directories.

Moreover, you can utilize these copy/cut and paste shortcut keys to transfer files from your PC to the File Manager. Simply locate the files you want to copy or cut in your PC's local file explorer and employ the shortcut keys as described above.

Please note that these shortcut keys are designed for copying or cutting files, not folders. We continually strive to enhance the user-friendliness of our dashboard by introducing new features and updates, so stay tuned for further improvements in the future.
