Re: ontext menu in FileDir?

Thanks for looking into it. I have never liked things on that side of that row; shift-f10, insert-f11 or f12, all that. I do not have the compiler for FileDir and would not know what I was doing enough to modify the code even if I had it, but thanks all the same. Good luck investigating!


Have a great day,
Alex

This is the first I've heard that Shift+F10 is awkward to press,
but I
want to be responsive. I picked that key since it is the
standard
keyboard alternative to a right mouse click. I will investigate
whether
I can program the Applications key to be synonymous.
Unfortunately,
nearly every other key combination is already taken. In the
meantime,
you could write a simple JAWS or Window-Eyes script that sends
Shift+F10
when the key combination you prefer is pressed. You could also
recompile
FileDir if you like. EdSharp's keys are configurable, but
FileDir's are
not at this point, and it would be a substantial reworking of
code to
change that.

That's a shame.  Could it at least be something more convenient,
like ctrl-m or something like that? That exact hotkey may be
taken, but you know what I mean; something that is not on the
right side of the f-keys, in my opinion about the most
inconvenient location on the entire keyboard.

Have a great day,

I just tested and found that it does not respond to the
Applications key
as well.    I think that would involve lower level keyboard
handling,
though am not sure.

Will this come up with the applications key as well as
Shift+F10, or
does that require deeper drilling of the keyboard?

Based on feedback like yours, I added a Context Menu command,
Shift+F10,
a while ago.  It provides most, though not all, of the
functionality of
that menu in Windows Explorer.  Other functionality, and more,
is
sometimes provided by other FileDir commands or menus.  If you
find
something missing, let me know.

In FileDir, is there a way to access the standard Windows
context
menu for files and folders? I liked FileDir when I tried it, but
the absence of this menu was a big turn-off.

Have a great day,
