Now let's try viewing the contents of a file. This is also the first step in editing a file.

Open FList or FL and find the file you would like to view.

Once you can see the file in the list that you would like to view, type X in the command area and hit ENTER. You can also use the F4 key as a shortcut from FList.

You should now see the contents of the file. You can scroll up and down as the file will most likely be larger than the number of lines shown on one screen.

This apllication is called XEdit. You can hit F3 to exit back to the file list. If you are using FL, you can also enter XEdit by type x in the command area, or by hitting F11 when the cursor is on the filename.
