  1. I can say that Fox learn is always a lifesaver when it comes to needing stuff you cant find any were else;D or atleast really good tutorials on a subject.

  2. You made my dream come true… thanks so much… congrats on your 53K! You deserve 1M. I am not lying like others, your the best.

  3. Hello, I have a one problem. I do what you show and have a statement 'The name "fbd" does not exist in the current FileExplorer context'. Can you help me why?

    hier you find the code in this folder: https://grupaignis987-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/t_myszak_grupaignis_pl/EgbaIndM5lJGh0t23-ayjYUBFasNOo3F8he2V2oV7Wspfg?e=HN3d0Q

  4. I see all of these people asking for the code, if you just copy and paste you're not learning anything. If you don't you're still learning even though it doesn't seem like it, so instead of just asking for the code, can you just write it? It's not that hard.

  5. My source (with a bit of improvement on the navigation) :
    using System;

    using System.Collections.Generic;

    using System.ComponentModel;

    using System.Data;

    using System.Drawing;

    using System.Linq;

    using System.Text;

    using System.Threading.Tasks;

    using System.Windows.Forms;

    namespace Explorer


    public partial class FileExplorer : Form


    public FileExplorer()




    private void FileExplorer_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)



    pathTextBox.Text = "C:/";


    private void goButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


    using(FolderBrowserDialog fbd = new FolderBrowserDialog() { Description = "Select your folder path" })


    if(fbd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)


    mainFileExplorer.Url = new Uri(fbd.SelectedPath);

    pathTextBox.Text = fbd.SelectedPath;




    private void bkButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)




    private void fwdButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
