      Hello!

      Netrw supports a number of file operations: copying, (de)compressing,
      deleting, moving, obtaining, printing, renaming, and more.

      For many of them, that means "marking" them first - move the cursor atop
      a file you want marked, and press "mf".

      However, before moving and copying files to a directory, you must first
      specify a target. Netrw provides you with four ways of doing this:

      * "mt" is used to select a target; when the cursor is atop a
      directory, then that directory will be used as the target. Otherwise,
      the current netrw directory will be selected as the target.

      * For gui (gvim) users, the Netrw menu now has a "Targets" listing,
      which is a merged listing of all the bookmarks and history. Selecting
      one of these entries specifies a target.

      * One may get a listing of bookmarks with "qb"; each is numbered,
      and so use [number]Tb to select one of your bookmarked directories to be
      a target

      * One may get a listing of history with "qb", too: each is
      numbered, and you may use [number]Th to select a directory you've
      recently been to to be a target.

      Regards,
      Chip Campbell
