Bookmark Dialog

You will see Bookmark dialog when you have used command Open Directory/Bookmark or when you have just added bookmark using Add to Bookmarks command.

In Commander interface the Bookmark dialog can be replaced with Location Profiles dialog.

You can use the bookmark dialog either to manage or open bookmarks, or to change the working directory by entering the path manually.


The directory box contains initially the path to your current working directory. You can change it manually to open any directory you want. Alternatively, you can select the path from bookmarks listed below (if any).

There are two bookmark lists, Session bookmarks and Shared bookmarks.

Use the buttons next to the bookmark list to manage your bookmarks.

The Add button adds the path from directory box to the bookmark list (at the cursor position).

The Remove button removes the selected bookmark.

Use the Up and Down buttons to change bookmark order. You can also reorder bookmarks by dragging each to a new position.

The Location profiles button is available in the Commander interface only. It switches (permanently) to “Location profiles” bookmark mode.
