Commander Tool Window
The Commander tool window is available when the Commander plugin that comes bundled
with IntelliJ IDEA, is enabled in your working environment.
Commander displays the hierarchical structure of a project in two similar panes and provides a handy interface for managing files and folders. Unlike the tree views, each Commander pane shows only one level of hierarchy, which is convenient in some cases (for example, when you are permanently working with one package only and don't need to view the whole hierarchy).
In this section:
|Scroll through the history of navigation operation back and forth in the selected pane of the Commander.|
|Ctrl+U||Swap contents of the two panes.|
|N/A||Synchronize panes, so that the contents of inactive pane becomes the same as the contents of the active pane.|
|If this button is pressed, the contents of the currently selected file automatically opens in the editor, with the caret at the first line of a file, or - in Java files - at a top-level class declaration.|
