Press the center button. (By "press," I mean a short press; do not hold
the button.) This will put you into the file browser. If you have the
"Follow playlist" setting set to yes, you will be in the same directory
as the song that you were playing when you pressed the center button.
Otherwise, you will be in the root directory.

Either way, once you're in the file browser, the following controls apply:

-Scroll wheel forward and back moves up and down in the file/folder list
-The left button moves up a level in the directory hierarchy
-The right button and the select button open the folder you have
selected (if you have a folder selected) or play the file you have
selected (if you have a file selected)
-The Play/Pause button returns you to the While Playing Screen.
-The Menu button enters the menu system.

To play a different album from the one you are currently listening to,
you can do one of two things:

1. Navigate to the folder containing the album. Press the center
button (or the right button) to open that folder, and then press the
same button again to start playing the first track on the album.
Rockbox will automatically create a playlist with all of the songs on
that album.

2. Navigate to the folder containing the album. Press AND HOLD the
center button. Press the center button again to enter the playlist
menu, and then select one of the options on that screen. This will
insert the folder you have selected into your current playlist, so
Rockbox will play that folder and then resume from where you were when
you inserted the new album into the playlist.
