Previous folder not available

Hi,
I`m testing the trayicon pro program and have noticed that if there are too many files contained within a folder, the cascading file list replaces the folder list one level up.

For example, if I have a first level folder called `A` with 2 subfolders inside, `B` and `C`. If folder `C` has hundreds of items, the cascading file list fills the whole screen and from there I can`t back up and see the contents of folder `B` unless I start from folder `A` again. Does that make sense? I use the program as a shortcut to network drives. Some of these drives have many, many subfolders within subfolders and hundreds of files in each folder. If I browse and I`m 6 subfolders deep and hit a folder with 500 files, I have to start from the root folder and find my path again to continue browsing.

Can this be remedied? Maybe if there are too many files, you could put an arrow at the end of the last file on-screen and by clicking that, you`d open up a new window for the whole folder. Kind of like - the first 100 files are displayed on-screen and if you want to see more, you have to open the whole folder in a separate window. That way, users can go back one folder level without starting from scratch.

Thanks for listening,
Stephanie

Hello, Stephanie

Thank you for your suggestions. We will take them into account.

The visual interface will be changed in the next version. We plan to add a menu scrolling.
At the moment please use the following keys to navigate:
ENTER - activates a menu.
ESC - exits to the previous menu.
LEFT ARROW - goes to the previous menu item. If the selected item is in a menu, the previous column in the menu is selected or the previous top-level menu item is selected.
RIGHT ARROW - works like the LEFT ARROW key in the opposite direction. In menus, this keystroke moves forward one column; when the currently selected item is in the far-right column, the next menu is selected.
UP ARROW - selects the previous item.
DOWN ARROW - selects the next item.

Thank you for your interest in our product
