File Explorer

Where all the files in a workspace live

The file explorer houses all of your files and is the primary means of file navigation you have within Parcel. You can always find the explorer on the left side of the workspace.

You can upload files and images to the workspace and organize them into folders.

File and folder names cannot contain /,\,|, <, >, :. ",?,* and must be less than 100 characters.

Drag and Drop files

You can drag and drop files to add them to the file explorer. You can also drag and drop files within the explorer to move them between folders.

Rename to move

You can use paths in file names to move files.

For example, if you had an email My First Email and a folder MyEmails on the same level, you can rename the email to MyEmails/My First Email to move it into the MyEmails folder.

The reverse is also true; you can rename the email ../My First Email and it will move out of the MyEmails folder. This works for any level of folder nesting.

Deleting a folder/file

Delete a folder/file by clicking the X icon on the right side, or by right clicking on the file/folder and clicking Delete.

Caution!

Deleting a folder will recursively delete every sub folder and file contained within.
