Enabling the "Open File Manager" button

You can provide your users with the ability to easily open a file or folder's location in the File Manager by enabling the "Open File Manager" button. When enabled from the Control Panel by an Administrator, the button will appear below file previews, above folder navigation lists, and on the manage archives page. Clicking the button will prompt the user to open the location in the File Manager, and also provides a link to download the File Manager. Users will still need to authenticate with their digital workplace through the File Manager. By enabling this button, you provide your users with easy access to the File Manager's simple and intuitive file browsing interface.

Note: Digital workplaces have this button enabled by default.
