Working directories

There are two file panels and two corresponding working directories:

  1. The contents of the normal current working directory are listed in the primary file panel on the screen.
  2. The so-called secondary working directory is used as a destination for copy and move commands. It is associated with the secondary file panel which is not displayed on the screen.

Initial working directories can be set as bookmarks.
