When you select the "Settings" item in the main menu, the application settings window opens (picture 3).

If you select the "Open" item in the main menu, a navigation window will appear (picture 4), in which you can select a disk (click on the disk icon in the upper right corner) and find the desired file.

If the list of recent files is activated in the settings menu, the item "Open recent" will be available in the main menu. If you click it, a list of recently opened files will appear (Figure 5). To open a file from the list of recent files, click on that file.

If the file is unavailable for any reason (for example, it was previously on a USB flash drive that was disabled), then a message will appear stating that the file is not available.

Unavailable files can be removed from the list. To do this, you need to click on the trash can icon on the right side of the line. For more information, see the FAQ .

Adding to the list of recent files starts from the moment you enable this option in the settings menu. Disabling this option clears the list.


The file opens in the main application window (picture 6).

If necessary, you can change the font (picture 7).
