Chapter 5. Konquering Your World > Uh, Roger, Copy That . . .

Uh, Roger, Copy That . . .

You can create, copy, move, rename, and delete files and directories by using Konqueror. But before you can do any of these things, you need to select a file or directory. Selecting files is something you will be doing a lot, so let's start with that. Place your mouse cursor just outside one of the icons of your choosing. Now drag the cursor across the icon and notice the dotted-line box you are creating as you drag the pointer. You'll know a file is selected because it becomes highlighted. Right-clicking also selects a file but in a somewhat different way, bringing up a menu dialog that will then ask you what you want to do with that file.

Don't forget your cursor keys either. Moving left, right, up, or down will highlight whatever file or directory you happen to be sitting on. You can then click on Edit in the menu bar (or press <Alt+E> to get to the edit menu) and decide what it is you want to do with the file. I'll talk about those decisions in a moment.
