Send To doesn't focus to mail windows

#1 Post by francois44 » 30.01.2018, 14:07

I am using FreeCommander XE 2018 Build 770 32-bit public.
My OS is Windows 10.
I have downloaded the last version.

When i use "Send To" on a file (left click + send to mail the selected file)
Freecommander open a "Thunderbird window", but the thunderbird window is not focused.
Freecommander stay focused.
Thunderbird should became the current application displayed and processed.

Is there a "send to" parameter which can be changed to focus to mail window ?

I have no problem when i open a document :
When i open a Thunderbird .eml with Freecommander, Thunderbird became the current application processed.
When i open a Word document with Freecommander, Word became the current application processed.

Thank you for your answer,
François

I am really not deep enough in that matter to answer your question, but some thoughts came to my mind:

1) I suppose FC relies on the "Send To" mechanism of the OS. I can't test at the moment, but I am not sure if the way you would like to behave it is the way it is supposed to work.

What happens if you try this from a normal Windows File Explorer window, i.e. not an FC window?

2) I have noticed weird Thunderbird behavior in similar situations, so Thunderbird might be the cause of the problem. You didn't say if you already have opened Thunderbird when trying to send the file to it. I would suggest to do the following test:

a) Open Thunderbird normally (by double-clicking its icon) and minimize it. Then try to send the file to it and note the behavior.

b) Close Thunderbird (and to be sure, double check in the task manager that it is really closed and that it did not leave a zombie process). Then try to send the file to it and note the behavior.

If there is a difference in the behavior between a) and b), this might help to detect the real cause of the problem.

Thank you for ypur answer H5JCa3y4quRpwN0g.

1) With a normal Windows Explorer the behaviour is the same, no focus to mail window
I think FreeCommander "Send To" is relied to a mecanism of the OS

2a) If Thunderbird is already open, no focus to mail window
2b) If Thunderbird is closed, without any zombie process in task manager,
same behaviour, no focus to mail window

So i think you are right, perhaps it's the "send to" mecanism of thunderbird
It's really not a FreeCommander bug
Regards,
François
