What is the noun for either a file or folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have files and directories; what is the noun that we could use to generically describe both of these? For example, an apple or a orange can generically be described as fruit. Is there such a word?

    "file system object" looks lengthy, have any short term?

  • Hi,

    "File System Entries" or "File System Objects" would be the answer to your question. Imao, Using "Files and Directories" would be the best choice.

    Thanks.
