Open Favourites folder in new tab with middle mouse button

#1 Post by ok1 » 12.11.2019, 23:35

As per subject this does not work. As I read it this was added in version 740 i.e. as below from the readme. Note tested using version 806 donor.

Implemented: Middle button click on favorite item in toolbar opens favorite target folder in new tab forum.freecommander.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=7174

I can

- Set 'Open Favourites in a new tab' and that works
- Middle mouse click a folder in FC and that opens in a new tab

Have tried

- Running FC using clean settings and still doesn't work.
- Tried from the Favourites 'menu' and Favourites as a Toolbar item

If this is not a feature it would be a nice addition though in no way critical or important.

Confirmed on 808 donor build - left and right click open item in active tab, middle click does nothing.
It would be nice to have this feature.

Can only partialy confirm:

Have four favorites in my favorite tool bar.
In the Define favorite toolbars Window they exhibit the following entries in the input field Program or folder:

somepathtofile/copyFolderStructure.cmd -> middle click produces no action = CONFIRMED (no start folder is defined, parameter defined as "%LeftDir%\*.*" "%RightDir%" %Dlg%)

%WinDir%\System32\cmd.exe -> middle click opens C:\WINDOWS\System32 in new tab = NOT CONFIRMED (no start folder nor parameter defined)

Powershell.exe -> middle click produces no action = CONFIRMED (start folder is defined as >%ActivDir%<, no parameter defined)

somepathto-Notepad++\notepad++.exe -> middle click opens ...path\Notepad++\ in new tab = NOT CONFIRMED (start folder is defined as %ActivDir%, parameter defined as %ActivSel%)

FreeCommander XE 2019 Build 808 64-bit donor

Kind Regards and Happy Holidays!
