The new Address Bar in the Current Directory Browser provides many point and click ways to navigate around your MATLAB file folders. The MATLAB current folder location is displayed as a series of buttons (or breadcrumbs) representing each subfolder in the path. This enables single-click transitions between folders above your current location.
Instead of traditional slashes between folders in the path, there are drop-down menus displaying subfolders at each level. Select a subfolder to navigate to (notice the current location is in bold).
Use the Forward and Back buttons to jump to previously viewed directories.
Select an entry on the history drop-down for quick transition to a recent folder location.
Or, if you enjoy typing, click on white space in the address bar to convert the display into a regular old backslash-separated pathname for editing and viewing.
Whether you are veteran or a newbie we think the new Current Directory navigation will enhance your file navigation experience. It has the best of both worlds – it’s easy to visually navigate, and it’s easy to manually enter a path.
