The following documentation shows how to manage files and folders from within the Manage Files section of a D2L course.
Note: This documentation covers how to open a file or folder, view properties of a file or folder, sort files and folders, edit an existing HTML or TXT file, copy a file or folder, move a file or folder, rename a file or folder, delete a file or folder, unzip a file, and zip a file in Manage Files. Be sure to pay attention to the step titles to see to which topic the documentation corresponds.
To view a file or to open a folder in Manage Files, click on the name of the file or folder.
If a file requires specific software to open it, then you must have that software installed on your computer. For example, to open a PowerPoint file you must have Microsoft PowerPoint installed.
Note: You can view file and folder properties such as Size, Type, and Last Modified Date. The link icon beside a file name indicates that the file is in use as a content topic.
To unzip a file or folder in the Manage Files area, go to the folder into which you want to extract files.
Upload your ZIP file. See Uploading and Downloading Files to learn more about uploading files.
