38.5 Visiting Files in Dired

There are several Dired commands for visiting or examining the files listed in the Dired buffer. All of them apply to the current line's file; if that file is really a directory, these commands invoke Dired on that subdirectory (making a separate Dired buffer).

f

Visit the file described on the current line, like typing C-x C-f and supplying that file name (dired-find-file). See section Visiting Files.

<RET>
e

Equivalent to f.

o

Like f, but uses another window to display the file's buffer (dired-find-file-other-window). The Dired buffer remains visible in the first window. This is like using C-x 4 C-f to visit the file. See section Multiple Windows.

C-o

Visit the file described on the current line, and display the buffer in another window, but do not select that window (dired-display-file).

Mouse-1
Mouse-2

Visit the file named by the line you click on (dired-mouse-find-file-other-window). This uses another window to display the file, like the o command.

v

View the file described on the current line, using M-x view-file (dired-view-file). Viewing a file with view-file is like visiting it, but is slanted toward moving around in the file conveniently and does not allow changing the file. See section Miscellaneous File Operations.

^

Visit the parent directory of the current directory (dired-up-directory). This is equivalent to moving to the line for ‘..’ and typing f there.
