The resident file manager for Dmuse will appear if you press F4. Below is an example of what the file manager looks like. In this example, the command "l" has just been executed to list the files/directories in the current directory (c:/usr/local/apps/musedata/baroque/bach/bg/keybd/wtc_ii). If you then wanted to go into the 0881 directory, you would type 12 and then Enter.


File manager commands

Command Description
l list current directory (each item is assigned a number)
ldu list files in short format with disk usage
