from an on-screen file directory sorted by name, extension, size or date,
in ascending or descending sequence. Move around the file directory using
cursor arrow keys or a microsoft-compatible mouse. Select from eight
smooth-motion mouse cursor shapes or the hardware mouse cursor. Log to a
different disk drive, change sub-directories, rename, delete, copy and move
files. The program automatically selects the best display mode, or you may
display in any mode available on your graphics adapter. Images larger than
the screen may be panned vertically and horizontally. If EMS or XMS memory
is available, pan images as large as 1280x1024x256. Colors may be adjusted
on EGA, MCGA, and VGA systems, and the adjusted palette saved to disk.

and color dot matrix and laser printers and includes an automatic Slide
Show and configuration program.
