Main menu - View - New folder tab

Activating the main menu item "View → New folder tab" or the shortcut "Ctrl+T" inserts a new folder tab in the active panel.

The new tab receives the name and the folder of the currently active tab.

A new folder tab can also be created as follows:

  • Right clicking an existing tab and selecting the menu item "New folder tab"
  • Double clicking the free space in the tab area
  • Middle clicking (clicking the mouse wheel) a folder in a panel, opens this folder in a new tab (in the panel where the folder was clicked).

Appearance, management and colors of FreeCommander tabs can be defined under the main menu item "Tools → Settings → View → Folder tabs" or  after right clicking a tab and selecting the menu item "Settings...".

Right clicking a tab opens a menu described in chapter "Overview of the user interface → Tab area with tabs".
