Viewing Files
Opening a file browser window
The file browser results pane shows files in the current query. Max keeps track of all the files in your search path in a database, and displays them based on queries. For example, the everything query shows all files. Other queries, such as audio files show only files of a certain type. There are three columns in the results pane, Name, Kind, and Modified. Click in the column header to sort files by that column. To resize a column, drag the divider between two columns.
