Double click questions

Post by eswul62 » Mon Jun 09, 2014 8:29 am

With me, the situation right now is as follows:

Scenario
Explorer open in the background
Everything search results in front of me

In Everything, when I double on a :
- file -> Explorer will jump in the background to that file
- folder -> same as with file

For files:
- is it possible to launch the file-associated application?
(e.g. when I doubleclick a .txt file, the file will be opened in the associated text editor, foreground)

For folders:
- is it possible to launch Explorer opening the folder to the foreground
(right now, as said, folder is opened in the background, I need to switch to Explorer)

Thanks.

This is what should happen.
Are you using custom commands in Tools -> Options -> General -> Context Menu?

What is displayed in the debug console when you double click an item?
- is it possible to launch Explorer opening the folder to the foreground
(right now, as said, folder is opened in the background, I need to switch to Explorer)
Explorer should get focus and be brought to the foreground after the double click in Everything.
What is displayed in the debug console when you double click an folder?

Thanks for coming on on this.

Under Tools -> Options -> General -> Context Menu I have : Show shell context menus tagged.

In debug mode (ctrl+ `) I tried to launch a .jpg - it should bring up XnView, it does so when double clicking the file within Opus.

below is a copy paste from the debutpanel.
