Chapter 4. The File Browser > Opening the File Browser

Opening the File Browser

When I work on single-monitor systems, I usually keep the File Browser closed unless I'm actually using it. On dual-monitor Macs, I keep the File Browser open on the second monitor. Unfortunately, Windows operating systems prevent you from doing this—dual-monitor support is one of the few remaining areas where the Mac offers a significant advantage in Photoshop work.

To open the File Browser, do any of the following (see Figure 4-1):

  • Choose File>Browse, or press Command-Shift-O.

  • Choose Window>File Browser.

  • Click the File Browser button in the Options bar (it's the icon that looks like a magnifying glass over an open folder).
