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
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Version 1909 Build 18363.535

Kind Regards and Happy Holidays!

This is a technical problem for me. Windows gives me at the point - when clicking on menu item - no way to determine which mouse button was used.
In the favorite tree you can use Ctrl+Click for opening in new tab.
I can only implement the same method Ctrl+Click when clicking on menu item.

Ctrl+click would be fine but it doesn't appear to work, just opens in current tab.

Tried by normal settings and clean set-up. Using portable version 818 32 and 64 bit.

In the tree it is Ctrl+DblClick.
For menu it is Ctrl+Click implemented - for the next release.

Marek, confirm Ctrl-Click works on 819. Thanks.

I would love Middle mouse click but if that can't be done so be it.

It's possible to use an external software, like HotkeyP or AutoHotkey, but then all middle click will be working as Ctrl+left click only, so for example middle click to close tab will not work anymore. Ctrl+left click to close tab must be added, then it would work.
