PhpStorm 2017.2 Help

Selecting Files and Folders

For selecting files and folders on your computer, PhpStorm provides a dedicated dialog whose functions are similar to those of a file browser.

In many situations, this dialog is a useful alternative to typing a path to a file or folder. All the fields in PhpStorm that contain path information have an ellipsis button /help/img/idea/2017.2/browseButton.png next to them that provides access to the file chooser dialog.

The keyboard equivalent of the ellipsis button is Shift+Enter.
