    Dropped out erroneously a couple of files to Ambient's desktop. Wanted to backdrop them at once......and then:
    Seems that it isn't possible to drop back more then one file from Ambients desktop at once!!! (Btw: Workbench can do!)

    Thats foolish - it were about 50 files.......and even there is no shortcut too!

    Are there any tricks?

    I have tried it with 47 mp3 files. Mark them in the Ambient screen right click Ambient menue - pictogramm and put away (zurück legen in german) works fast.
    But all files Show the shortcut Arrow.

    Thanks for reply - I tested again:
    When collecting more then one file, right mousebutton has no funktion, if pointer is directly over a file-icon When moving to top menue, it has function again, and I can put them back. Didn't expect that........strange behaviour.........

    I have a different question, say that you browse inside a drawer (in drawer mode , not lister) and want to locate another drawer which starts by "K": hold shift + K on keyboard but then you want to navigate on top or bottom which you can do by up/down arrows. All is good so far.

    But what if you want to navigate left or right? It just moves the cursor left and right on the search string whether you are still holding shift or not.

    Is this normal? What if you moved the cursor only if you keep holding shift and regular left/right arrows would allow navigation just like up/down?
