Type @kbd{M-x speedbar} to create the speedbar and associate it with
the current frame. To dismiss the speedbar, select it and type
@kbd{q} or @kbd{M-x speedbar}. (You can also delete the speedbar
frame like any other Emacs frame.) You can then attach the speedbar
to a different frame by typing @kbd{M-x speedbar} in that frame.

The speedbar can operate in various modes. Its default mode is
@dfn{File Display} mode, which shows the files in the current
directory of the selected window of the attached frame, one file per
line. Clicking on a file name visits that file in the attached frame,
and clicking on a directory name shows that directory in the speedbar
(@pxref{Mouse References}). Each line also has a box, @samp{[+]} or
@samp{<+>}, that you can click on to @dfn{expand} the contents of that
item. Expanding a directory adds the contents of that directory to
the speedbar display, underneath the directory's own line. Expanding
an ordinary file adds a list of the tags in that file to the speedbar
display; you can click on a tag name to jump to that tag in the
attached frame. When a file or directory is expanded, the @samp{[+]}
changes to @samp{[-]}; you can click on that box to @dfn{contract} the
item, hiding its contents.
