[MOD+W] import read/write
If possible, the pool behind the selected boot environment is exported and then re-imported in read/write mode.
This is not possible if any of the following conditions are met:
The version of ZFS in ZFSBootMenu has detected unsupported pool features, due to an upgraded pool.
The system has an active resume, indicating that the pool is currently in use.
Upon successful re-import in read/write mode, each of the boot environments on this pool will be highlighted in red at the top of the screen.

name Use the filesystem or snapshot name

used Use the filesystem or snapshot size
The default sort key is name.
