Open folder in new tab

#1 Post by wrbird » 08.11.2019, 21:54

I just replaced my laptop and installed Build 806 64-bit donor. I created a favorites toolbar with a link to a folder. When I click on the icon the folder opens up in File Explorer rather than FreeCommander like it always has in the past. How do I get FreeCommander to open this folder in the active tab like it does on my other laptop?

Anyway, you can create direct path to a folder instead, then the folder will be always opened in FC.

It works fine for me in 806.
What folder did you define?

Yes, it works here too, even with those options above disabled, in 806.

Thanks for your input. I've never seen this before either. I'll have to wait until Monday to further troubleshoot this.

Ok, I have it figured out. It was my mistake all along. I only had the path to the folder in the Start folder field, not in the Program or folder field. I'm good to go now.
