3. Focus > Use Rooted Views

Use Rooted Views

A rooted view is a view of a directory structure rooted at a particular subdirectory, where you see only the contents from the root directory downward. If you are working on a particular project, you don’t care about the files from other projects. Rooted views allow you to eliminate the distraction of out-of-context files and focus just on the set of files upon which you need to work right now. All the major platforms support this concept, but the implementations are different.

Rooted Views in Windows

A rooted Explorer view (“rooted” on the c:\work\sample code\art\art_emotherearth_memento folder) appears in Figure 3-2.
