go to nested folder

#1 Post by kusi » 10.05.2022, 14:09

I'm looking for a command similar to "go to folder" (Alt+G), but which allows to enter a part of nested folders, with autocompletion

Example tree (relative to my current location):

Code: Select all

fdrA1
 |___fdrB1
 |       |____fdrC1
 |
 |___fdrB2
So, if I hit (e.g) Shift+Alt+G a simple popup menu opens with the entries
- fdrA1/fdrB1/fdrC1
- fdrA1/fdrB2

If I now enter "C", the entry " fdrA1/fdrB1/fdrC1" is selected. Pressing enter brings me straight to this folder.

User benefit:
* you don't have to click through a deeply nested hierarchy. (in the example: first opne fdrA1, then fdrB1, then fdrC1)
* you don't have to remember in which part of the tree your folder is located

Implementation
* https://github.com/junegunn/fzf might be of help, also exists for Windows

What do you think?

Install Everything search tool and use the JumpToFolder AHK script.
This allows you to jump to any folder or file in your whole system with a minimum amount of input.

There is alos a script which stores Everything search results in an FC file container.
This is the fastest way to search and beats any native FC search.

indeed, I stumbled upon your posts right after I asked here. Thanks for the hint, great addition! Maybe the author of FC considers an even better integration of the functionality "Everything" offers into FC?
