  • Search helps you find files with the name you will specify. Notice that it will search only the directory you are at.

If you click the arrows at the right side of every directory, you will see a list with all the subdirectories in the this directory. For example I clicked the arrow at the right of kronos and I can see the directories inside kronos directory. It also shows in bold that you are in Downloads.
