Browse Folders in panel1 and Files in panel2

#1 Post by eric_verboven » 15.09.2019, 12:18

I'm using FreeCommander XE2017 Build 740 32 bit public. I'm using FC in two-panel mode.

In my left panel, I get the (very long) list of Folders.
In the right panel, I would like to get the files (i.e. file names) belonging to the folder my selector bar happens to be on, Without (and that's the tricky thing) double-clicking on the Folder.

I guess I'm looking for a lazy file browser: just move the bar in the left column, maybe with the up-down-arrows, and get the file names in the right column.

Can this be done?

Thanks for your information!

AFAIK, this is not possible.

Workaround, use the Tree, single click the folder to see the folder content in the main panel, or use down arrow key.

Thanks, Dreamer. It's not exactly what I had in mind, but I think it's good enough. Thanks for your reply!

You're welcome.

9 years ago I requested similar feature, to quickly move to next subfolder, you can support it, if you like it.

"Next subfolder" and "Previous subfolder" options

I would like to see such option

I would like to click an icon on a Splitter and turn left of right Panel to a viewer of a highlighted [selected] folder in the opposite panel. And if more than one folder are selected- then mix their content [just like in case of using CTRL + B]
