📄️ Accessing the web interface
Once Komga is started, you can access the web interface at//:(/baseUrl).
📄️ Desktop Application
The Desktop application runs in your menu bar / tray icon:
You can separate content in different libraries, a library is a group of books. Libraries access can also be restricted to specific users.
📄️ Emptying Library Trash
Like modern operating systems, Komga uses a concept of placing items in the “trash” before they’re permanently removed. If you move or delete the file for a library item or if the file somehow becomes unavailable, then the library item will be placed into the “trash”. This helps prevent against items being accidentally or unintentionally removed from your Library. It can be particularly helpful in situations where a drive or network share where content is stored isn’t available when a Library Scan occurs. By default, the item will remain in the trash until you perform an “Empty Trash” on your Server.
📄️ Scanning, Analyzing and Refreshing Metadata
Once a library has been created, it is processed by Komga so all the files are matched to series and books, and metadata is gathered. As time goes on, you’ll add and remove books to the libraries or make other changes that mean the library is no longer up-to-date. You can Scan libraries to bring them up-to-date. Scanning, Analyzing and Refreshing a library do different things.

📄️ Edit Metadata
In some cases, when you add an item to your Library, information such as summaries or release date is retrieved from embedded metadata. These details are shown when viewing the item to provide information about the item and make using Komga a more enjoyable experience.

📄️ User accounts
The administrator of a Komga server has the ability to create other User Accounts for that server.
📄️ Server settings & management

📄️ Read progress
Komga can track which books you have read, and books that you are currently reading. Reading progress is tracked for each user separately.
Collections let you gather related series together. For example, you might add all the Batman series together in a "Batman" collection.
📄️ Read lists
Read lists let you gather related books together. Think of it as playlists, but for books. For example, you might add all the books where Wolverine appears together in a "Wolverine" read list.
📄️ Full Text Search
Komga leverages Full Text Search (FTS hereafter) to provide relevant results from your libraries.
📄️ Import Books
Komga lets you import files that are outside your existing libraries directly into existing series folder (from the Import > Books screen).
📄️ Duplicate Files
Komga can detect duplicate files among your books.
📄️ Duplicate Pages
Komga can detect duplicate pages among your books, and delete them manually or automatically.
