| Open a file or folder | Select or Dot 8 | Pressing Select or Dot 8 opens the file or folder. |
| Go to previous or next file or folder | Up or Down Arrow | Pressing Up or Down Arrow moves to the previous or next file in the list. |
| Go back one folder level | Dot 7 | Dot 7 acts like a "back" key to exit the current activity. If you are already in the File Manager, pressing Dot 7 moves the focus back one level when you have mulitple subfolders open. 
If you are at the root level, Dot 7 does nothing. If you are in one of the columns of information, for example size or date, then pressing Dot 7 returns to the filename. |

| Open the Menu | Select + Up Arrow | Pressing Select + Up Arrow opens the menu. |
| Scroll text | Left or Right Panning keys| If the file name is longer than the display, panning left or right displays more of the file name. When you get to the end of the file name, pressing the panning key moves you to the next item of file information, such as position, size, date, and so on.|

Press Select to exit without making a new folder.|
| Delete a file or folder | Space + D (Dots 1 4 5) | This action deletes the currently selected file(s) or folder(s). Only empty folders can be deleted.

| Rename a file or folder| Space + R (Dots 1 2 3 5) | The Rename File command allows you to change the name of a file or folder. To use it, press the Rename command. Orbit Reader responds with an Edit Box containing the original file or folder name. Edit the name or type a new one and press Dot 8. Press Select to exit without renaming a file or folder.|

| Copy a file | Space + C (Dots 1 4) | The Copy File command makes a copy of the currently selected file(s) and places it(them) on the clipboard to be used with the paste command. |
| Paste a file | Space + V (Dots 1 2 3 6) | This action pastes the file(s) or folder(s) that are currently on the clipboard into the current location in the File Manager. If no file or folder is on the clipboard, no action is taken. |

See [[User3#The Editor|The Editor]] section for more information. |
