Konqueror is the file manager and a
Web browser for the KDE desktop. Konqueror allows you to configure your KDE
desktop, configure your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system, play
multimedia files, browse digital images, surf the Web, and more
from one interface. This section explains some of the ways
Konqueror can help you work with and
enjoy your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.
To start Konqueror for file
management, click on your home directory icon
Konqueror opens up in a window on
your desktop, allowing you to navigate through your home directory
and throughout your Red Hat Enterprise Linux file system. After
exploring, you can return to your home directory by clicking the
Home button on the toolbar.
