I've added a help screen for the folder manager
A working version is now out:

// fixed a bug with some CDs that have no track information causing no track title to trim()
// up to drive e: when the tooltip should say drive root, added code to handle the up icon mouse enter root identification
// added help screen and menu item
// added roll over highlight of the buttons
// added tooltip change to reflect file or folder selection
// created file background with file plaque changed according to type
// fixed the file/folder browser type as called from the various places.
// there is no selected file by default any more
// no file selection does nothing as it should
// double click a file in file mode must play it
// the 2nd and 3rd folders selected should not replicate the first if the folder selected is the same
// right click select fourth saved folder selects the wrong one, now calls setmenu
// save the selected folder to the current prefs so that when opening the new folder selector the previous position is retained.
// back pressed twice, the up location is not set correctly
Unfortunately, there may be one or two bugs but in general it works and does not crash. It is a fairly basic file/folder explorer with no drag/drop nor filename editing on-the-fly but it allows navigation, file or folder selection, has full help and does the job it was designed to do. It also has a unique look that appeals to me.
o New toggle switch for long/short folder/file names.
o New close and help buttons top right.
o Current folder name added to the top of the page.
// macintosh - code to determine parent folder using /
// On Macs ignore files beginning with a dot '.'
// give the explorer an option to display the whole path or just the current folders within this folder.
// tested to see if the external sound resources exist before attempting to play
// add a brass toggle to select the display of long/short folder names
// add a startup routine to set the brass toggle position as the browser initiates
// fixed a bug with file selection causing the currentfolder to empty
// 1.0.14a contains the following bug fixes and changes.
// both upIcon functions use the same code to select the up folder
// the upIcon function now only selects a folder if the path is valid
// array variables moved from mediaplayer to folder.js to make folder.js more portable
// new alert for selecting files when folders should be selected
// new busyIcon for the folder.js when selecting an up or down folder
// added a .030 sec sleep to allow the new busyIcon to display
// file selection bug - the selected file has the correct file name but the folder is not from
// the folder selected but is built using the folder where it is being dragged to.
// added the current folder name to the top of the page
// there is a // insertion bug when selecting a folder using the Windows default browser
// help image to have a x - to close added to the image and supporting close text
// f5 refresh - causes the folder panel to fade out and in again
// long folder name selection toggle to work for files too? Tried it, abandoned the idea.
// rotate the folder busy instead of the main busy
// place the folder elements, sound, images in their own folder
// images into the images/folder folder
// sounds into the sounds/folder folder
// tested the alternative to a sleep statement to allow the busy animation to rotate, abandoned the idea,
// - tried a for loop with the animation within but it would not show the animation until the loop was finished
// fixed the menus
// add custom alert code
// reorganised the preferences screens to be more logical
Added new functionality to provide 'period' alert boxes as and when needed.
