Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

Thank you for clarifying this. I've only customized the Standard Bar to have my own collection of useful buttons, and didn't really ever seek out anything more than that. But I probably didn't pursue it much once I saw that these buttons are placed on the right-end of the bar (and since I am top/bot...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

as a workaround I would suggest (and I think it's a good workaround): put "Open focused folder as a new tab in the same panel" in the address toolbar - even saves you a click! I don't understand what you're saying. Is this your own suggestion for a similar new feature? Or are you pointing...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

More workarounds, all 1-click: - toolbar new tab button - address bar new tab button 1. Both require very large mouse movements to get to, after possibly also having first clicked on an address bar to give focus to one panel or the other. 2. Unless I'm doing something wrong, there is no icon which ...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

I don't have any tabs showing. The address bar at the moment is just a single folder. Note that with my settings I do not always have at least one tab showing. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/9268/xGP5cg.jpg That is the situation where right-click on the "empty address bar" does not...

Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

There are several different ways to create a new folder tab on the Address Bar of a panel with focus. One way, CTRL+T, requires two hands (so if one hand is on the mouse it must be removed in order to type CTRL+T). Or, you can do a lot of mouse movement using the Menu bar, View -> New folder tab. Et...

Re: SSH SFTP problems

Good morning, I have problems to get SSH working, since provider strato has changed from FTP to SSH recently. I haven't used FCXE for FTP. But in passing, I recommend WINSCP . I use it to connect to a family FTP site which uses SSH. Works perfectly, and is intuitive and capable. Allows file transfe...

Re: 827: over/under split screen, program always opens with bottom panel focus

Just out of curiosity, I did a full uninstall and deletion of all previous settings, and then installed 828 from scratch. I was curious to see if the new spread-out MENU bar item placement was somehow tied to upgrading my previous FCXE setup, and if it would be eliminated if I started over with a br...

Re: 827: over/under split screen, program always opens with bottom panel focus

This particular issue seems to have been cleared up with 828. Whichever panel has the focus at program-close, now seems to get it back correctly when program is re-launched. I do, however, observe one new cosmetic issue with 828 (or at least a difference from previous versions): the horizontal space...

827: over/under split screen, program always opens with bottom panel focus

I have split screen over/under set, with Explorer Tree pane in both top and bottom panels. Program is closed with top panel having the focus. Re-launching the program should still have the top panel with focus. However when the 827 program is re-launched it is now the bottom panel which always has t...

Re: RAR Plugin

From the replies that I got, I understand FC does not support RAR packing, not even through plugins. How can I configure it then to use installed WinRAR as an external packer? Please refer to my post #8 above . That is exactly what I showed. First screenshot shows use of right-click context menu to...

Re: Action bar too narrow

I have just installed Freecommander Xe 2020 build 825 donor. The action be is very narrow and the icons, let alone the captions, do not show properly, even with small icons. I could not find any setting option to enlarge the toolbar, and cannot drag its borders. Any help? (I could not paste an imag...

Re: RAR Plugin

How can I pack rar archives with FC? Is there a plugin? I assume you have WINRAR installed. And that you've installed it with the shell extensions. So just right-click on the selected items you want to pack into a RAR (or ZIP) archive. And from the context menu, move the mouse over the WINRAR item ...
