In DirectoryOpus, when doubleclicking a folder while the ALT-key is pressed, opens the doubleclicked folder in a new folder-tab. This is very nice and comfortable.
However, how can I achieve this same behavior, when clicking an item in the folder-history list?

And it would also be nice if a new folder-tab is created when clicking a drive button while the ALT-key is pressed.
Alt is already used to start editing a selected button so you can't use it when clicking buttons.
You can, however, use the keyargs argument to define another key to this. For example, change your hdd buttons to:
Go DRIVEBUTTONS=fixed KEYARGS shift:NEWTAB ctrl:OPENINDUAL
Then holding SHIFT while clicking the drive button will open a newtab, and CTRL will result in the drive opening in the dual lister.
Though if you turn OFF the Alt-Click to edit Toolbar buttons option in prefs, you can then use:
Go DRIVEBUTTONS=fixed KEYARGS alt:NEWTAB just fine...
For the first request, you can't do this in the current 'Location' field drop down list of recent folders... however, you could create another menu item with a button that runs the Recent KEYARGS alt:NEWTAB command?
Edit Note: if you REALLY wanted to be able to alt-click an item from the Location field drop down, I guess you could submit a feature request to GPSoft to add a similar KEYARGS argument to the field...
Ah yes. I'd forgotten you can turn this off - not sure why anyone would want to though - far too handy.
Too true... no doubt about it, and I was close to saying as much when I made the post, as I love the option.
FWIW... PeterPanino (and whoever else reads) should know that it doesn't HAVE to be the ALT key. Not sure if Peter is necessarily attached to the ALT key so much as it just happens to be the default key for Opus inside the file display in order to open a folder in a new tab. And you can change that under Settings->File Types->All folders->Events tab, and change whatever mouse/key combo you want to run the Go NEWTAB command... IF all you want is consistency between all the different methods of opening folders in new tabs mentioned here... AND want to retain the handy dandy ability to edit toolbar buttons by alt-clicking on them.
