Files are selected for display from an on-screen file directory sorted by name, extension, size or date, in ascending or descending sequence. Move around the file directory using cursor arrow keys or a microsoft-compatible mouse. Select from eight smooth-motion mouse cursor shapes or the hardware mouse cursor. Log to a different disk drive, change sub-directories, rename, delete, copy and move files. The program automatically selects the best display mode, or you may display in any mode available on your graphics adapter. Images larger than the screen may be panned vertically and horizontally.
