Right-click the path to assign hot path or copy path to the clipboard. You can drag path to the Command line or to the other Directory line. You can also drop a directory (it can be text dragged e.g. from text editor or a real directory dragged e.g. from Windows Explorer) to the Directory line to change the directory in the panel.
This icon () is displayed whenever some files or directories existing in the current directory are not shown in panel. It can be any combination of following reasons: you are using a filter or you have hidden some selected files or directories (see Limiting the Files and Directories to Display) or you don't want to see hidden and system files (see Hide files and directories with hidden or system attribute in Configuration/Panels). Click this icon to open context menu from which you can suppress described reasons and so display all existing files and directories.
