Directory Opus and Quick Access Popup / Folders Popup working hand in hand


Hi xibalba,

Thanks for the reference. This app is too much for my personal needs and I'm used to start QAP directly from the tray of using the middle mouse button. But users could find ObjectDock a convenient way to start QAP menu.

In this app or in any other app that would provide custom links, instead of relying to the system tray, you could use the QAPmessenger utility that was developed for Explorer context menus but that could also be useful in other situation. To show the QAP menu from any shortcut, enter the path and parameter:

"C:\Program Files\Quick Access Popup\QAPmessenger.exe" ShowMenuLaunch
"C:\Program Files\Quick Access Popup\QAPmessenger.exe" ShowMenuNavigate

This will show the QAP menu at the mouse position (or at other position as set in QAP options). ShowMenuLaunch will launch a favorite folder in a new DOpus tab (or Explorer window) and ShowMenuNavigate will change the folder in the current tab or window.



Thanks for the tip, but I can't get this to work from a dock.

When using QAPmessenger, the menu pops up and I can open/start programs, open the settings, etc.

But, if I try to open a folder or drive I get this error:
"An error occurred while trying to open this favorite. Please, try again..."

This is ONLY when I try via a shortcut on my dock.
The shortcut works normally when started as a shortcut, ie. double-click on the lnk-file :smiley:.
(So QAPmessenger, QAP Portable, DOPus and ObjectDock doesn't quite see eye to eye, lol)

Will look into it, but for now I'll stick with the "System Tray dock".



It took me some time before I was able to check this. I was not able to reproduce this issue. I could add a shortcut in a tab and open both apps, settings and folders with it (with DOpus). I had to put "ShowMenuLaunch" in the "Arguments" field of the shortcut, not in the "Link" field.


Yes, I do the same.
I'm 99.99999% sure that this is not a QAP or DOpus problem.
The shortcut work as expected outside "the dock".

Would help if You could post (or PM me) the condition/error check that triggers the error message from QAP.
It might send me in the right direction regarding what's blocking QAP from opening the folder.



This is becoming pretty specific. I'll follow up by PM.


Oops! PM are closed on this forum. I turned on the "User can email me" option (


Thanks for QAP that I just discovered now, and for the idea of Quickdock...



I just posted an update on changes in Quick Access Popup since this post written a looong time ago. Changes include the integration of DOpus Favorites to the QAP menu.
