To explore and organize the various types of fractal-related files on your computer, Ultra Fractal includes a flexible file browser. It works much like Windows Explorer, but it also works with files containing multiple entries, such as parameter files or formula files.

  • The tree on the left shows an overview of all files and folders on your computer. If Library mode is active, only the files and folders in the library of the current file type are shown. See Library mode.
  • The list on the right shows the contents of the file or folder selected in the tree. The name of this file or folder is displayed by the location input box. The list can show either item details, icons or thumbnails. See View style.
