Files tool window
Most of the functions in this tool window are accessed as context menu commands in the content pane and associated shortcuts.
- Context menu for the title bar
- Title bar icons
- Content pane
- Context menu commands for the content pane items
There are two main views in the tool window:
- Files view. For files and folders associated with your project, this view provides the functions similar to those of a file manager. It lets you create files and folders, open files in the editor and perform other useful tasks.
- Scratches view. This view lets you manage your database consoles and extension scripts. See Managing database consoles and Extending the DataGrip functionality.
The necessary view is selected from the list in the left-hand part of the title bar or, if the views are represented by tabs, by clicking the corresponding tab.
To configure a view, use the corresponding options in the title bar context menu. The necessary options can also be accessed by clicking on the title bar.
Context menu for the title bar
Title bar icons
| When you click this icon, the file or console which is open on the current editor tab is highlighted in the current view of the Files tool window. |
This icon is not available if the Autoscroll from Source option is currently on.
|Ctrl+NumPad -||Use this icon or shortcut to collapse all the nodes.|
|When you click this icon, the menu is shown whose options are a subset of the title bar context menu.|
|Shift+Escape||Use this icon or shortcut to hide the tool window.|
The content pane shows the folders associated with your project and their contents, or your database consoles grouped by DB data sources.
Context menu commands for the content pane items
When you right-click an item in the content pane, the context menu for this item is shown. This menu provides access to all the functions available for the selected item.
The following table lists and briefly explains the most frequently used context menu commands.
|Attach Directory||Use this command to associate a directory with the project. Select the directory of interest in the dialog that opens. The selected directory along with all its contents, effectively, becomes part of your project.|
|New||Alt+Insert||Use this command or shortcut to create a new directory or file in the current directory. In the Scratches view, this command also lets you create a database console.|
|Cut||Ctrl+X||Use this command to move the selected item or items from the current location to the clipboard.|
|Copy||Ctrl+C||Use this command to copy the selected item or items to the clipboard.|
|Copy Path(s)||Ctrl+Shift+C||Use this command to copy the full path(s) of the selected item or items to the clipboard.|
|Copy Relative Path||Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C||Use this command to copy a relative path to the selected item to the clipboard.|
|Paste||Ctrl+V||Use this command to insert the contents of the clipboard into the selected location.|
|Jump to Source||F4||Use this command to open the selected file in the editor. If the file is already open, the corresponding editor tab will become active.|

|Local History||Use this command to view local history for the selected file or directory, or to create a label for the current version of your project.|
|Synchronize '<item_name>'||Use this command to synchronize the selected item with its version saved in the file system. |
(If you change a file or directory contents externally, DataGrip, under certain circumstances, may not be aware of the corresponding changes unless you use this command.)
|Show in Explorer||Use this command to open a file browser (e.g. Windows Explorer or Finder) and show the selected item there.|
|File Path||Ctrl+Alt+F12||Use this command to open the File Path menu. This menu shows the path from the file system root to the selected element with individual directories as the menu items. |
When you select an item in this menu (e.g. a directory), a file browser (e.g. Windows Explorer or Finder) opens, and the selected item is shown there.
|Compare With||Ctrl+D||Use this command to compare the selected file or directory with another file or directory. Select the other file or directory the dialog that opens. See Differences viewer for files and Differences viewer for folders.|
|Compare File with Editor||Use this command to compare the selected file with the file open on an active editor tab. See Differences viewer for files.|
|Mark Directory As Excluded||Use this command to make DataGrip ignore the selected directory. As a result, the directory won't be shown in the Files tool window and you won't be able to work with that directory in DataGrip.|
