You can view currently syncing and synced files, currently checked out files, start or pause the Sync process, open your root Sync location, launch the ShareFile website in your default browser, access Sync Preferences or Exit the Sync program all from this Dashboard. You can navigate directly to a file’s location by right-clicking the file name.

To open a file in its native program, double-click the file. This requires that you have a compatible version of the file’s program installed on your machine.
