 The {gui>​Side Pane} is organized into three categories of objects: **Devices**,​ **Places** and **Network**. ​ The {gui>​Side Pane} is organized into three categories of objects: **Devices**,​ **Places** and **Network**. ​
  
-In the **Devices** section, you will find fixed disk partitions as well as removable media listed. At a minimum, on a simple system with a single disk and operating system, you will just see the //File System// listed. Clicking on this item will take you to the root of your file system and display the entire folder hierarchy. If you are new to Linux, this structure may be confusing. You can learn more about it in [[thunar-docs:​unix-filesystem|The UNIX File System]] section. ​+In the **Devices** section, you will find fixed disk partitions as well as removable media listed.

-The **Places** section provides a location for storing shortcuts to the various file folders on your system. ​ The three shortcuts shown in the figure above are there by default and they can not be removed or rearranged. The first shortcut will lead to your ''​Home Folder'',​ the folder where you store all your personal data, and will therefore have the name of the current user. The second shortcut takes you to the //Desktop Folder//, which contains the files and folders that are displayed on the desktop. The third shortcut will take you to the trash bin, which stores deleted files that can be recovered later. You can add your own shortcuts by simply dragging folders from the main area to the {gui>​Side Pane}. This will allow you to access important folders quickly. User-defined shortcuts can be rearranged in the side pane by dragging them up or down in the list. To remove a previously added shortcut, right-click on the shortcut and choose {gui>​Remove Shortcut}. To rename a previously added shortcut, right-click on the shortcut and choose {gui>​Rename Shortcut}. Note that these actions affect only the shortcut, not the folder referenced by the shortcuts.+The **Places** section provides a location for storing shortcuts to the various file folders on your system. ​ The three shortcuts shown in the figure above are there by default and they can not be removed or rearranged.

 If your Side Pane starts to get too cluttered with devices and shortcuts, you can temporarily hide items be right-clicking on an empty area of the pane and unchecking the ones you don't need to see. If your Side Pane starts to get too cluttered with devices and shortcuts, you can temporarily hide items be right-clicking on an empty area of the pane and unchecking the ones you don't need to see.

 In the **Network** section, you will see a single //Browse Network// icon. Clicking this icon will allow you to connect to a server or network share to browse and view files on that server. The file manager will find any computers on your local area network that advertise their ability to serve files. If you want to connect to a server on the internet, or if you do not see the computer you're looking for, you can manually connect to a server by typing in its internet/​network address in the toolbar of the Location Selector. After successfully connecting to a share, a shortcut for it will appear under **Network** in the side pane. In the **Network** section, you will see a single //Browse Network// icon.

-Each style gives a slightly different visual indication of where your current folder is in the file hierarchy ​but each one also offers different methods for navigating through the file system. In the case of the //Pathbar Style//, you can quickly relocate to any folder by clicking on its button. Right-clicking on a button offers additional options. ​As for the //Toolbar Style//, ​you can move one level at a time by clicking on the {gui>​Back},​ {gui>​Forward} or {gui>Up} arrow icons but if you right-click on the {gui>​Back} and {gui>​Forward} icons, you will see a pull-down history of previously visited folders to select from. The {gui>​Home} icon will always take you directly to your Home folder.+Each style gives a slightly different visual indication of where your current folder is in the file hierarchy ​and offers different methods for navigating through the file system.
