Directory Browsing

I am a Windows user and am connecting to a VMS system. My login directory on the VMS system is defined as the current directory when I log in.

1. I cannot figure out how to browse from the 'root' of a VMS drive in order to see all of the directories just below the root. (I can however type in a path to a known directory below the root and see its files and subdirectories.)

2. Also, all manually entered paths get lost when I shut down. Is there a way to save them?
