Open a document in Windows Explorer

If you want to see where a document is physically located on your file system, you can open Windows Explorer from Project Builder so you are not required to search your file system. You can do this using either the List View or the Hierarchy View. This option makes it quick and easy to locate documents.

You can open a document in Windows Explorer from the list view by following these steps:

  1. Open the Documents window if it is not already open.
  2. Select the document set and document subset that you are viewing.

    The documents in the selected document subset are displayed in the selected view.

  3. As needed, switch to the List view Documents Window - Flat View icon or the Hierarchy view Documents Window - Hierarchy View icon.

    If you are testing document separation, use the Hierarchy view. Otherwise, use the List view.

    The selected document set is displayed.

  4. Select the desired document, right-click, and select Open Windows Explorer.

    Windows Explorer is displayed and the selected document is highlighted.
