# Web Interface
Once the Nanome Vault plugin is running, you can visit http://localhost in your browser to see the Web Interface.
At the root level, there are two folders: shared and account.
The shared folder is accessible to all users connected to the plugin, whereas the account folder is only accessible to your Nanome account.
To log in on the web interface, either click the "log in" next to "Welcome!", or double-click the account folder. Enter your Nanome account credentials in the popup that appears and click "log in".
Once you are logged in, you can use the account folder.
# Uploading and Managing Files
To upload files, you can either drag and drop a file onto the webpage, or click the upload button.
Try it out! Download a sample PDF and drag-and-drop it into the Web Interface. An example can be found here:
To create folders, you can either click the new folder button or right-click and select "new folder". This will prompt you for the folder name and create the folder in the current directory.
To delete files or folders, right-click the item and select "delete", and then confirm in the dialog that appears.
# VR Interface
Launch Nanome and create a room. Open the Plugins Menu with the button on the Entry Menu to see your plugin populated.
Like the web interface, at the root level there are two folders: shared and account.
You can browse and load items from the folder structure by clicking on items in the list.
To upload structures from your workspace, browse to the directory you want to upload to and click on the "upload here" button. This will prompt you to select a structure. After you select a structure, upload it by selecting the format you want (PDB, SDF, or MMCIF).
