In the screenshot, when I double-click the alias.txt I the [lower] right pane, a new Lister opens. How come?
I have (per previous help) got all ny startup preferences set to, if a Lister is already open, to bring it forward. But this opens a new lister -- every time I double-click the alias.txt file. If I click it 10 times, I have 10 listers open.
Probably because you assigned the Go command to the All Files & Folders double-click action (from your previous thread).
So how do I get what I was after (previous thread) without the doubling up?
I'm headed over to check the other thread, in case there was a comment there...
Leo, I went back and took the "Go out, and now, if I double click a txt file, it just opens a new Lister, not even the txt file I double-clicked!
Think about what you're doing here.
You've changed what Opus does when you double click all files and folders so that it makes a shortcut to them in Recent and then runs the Go command on them.
First, if you then take out the Go command, then all that will happen when you double-click any file or folder is that a shortcut is created to it in recent. That should not be surprising.
Second, if you put the Go command back, note that the Go command only makes sense for folders not folders and files. You want to delete that double-click action from the all folders and files filetype and only add it to the all folders filetype.
(You may want to add a slightly different command to the all files filetype which creates the recent shortcut and launches the file, when a file is double-clicked. I believe you already have an action to do that, unless it was someone else who was talking about it recently?)
Leo, I'll take it out of the All Folders and Files and try it on just folders...
Let you know...
Leo, for some reason, when I took the command away from all files and folders and put it on all folders only, then it just opened a Lister.
I went and tried something else -- curiosity maybe -- I put the "Recent List" button on the tool bar, and it seems to be generating a list, but not vertically, but along the toolbar. So I added it to a menu instead, and then it does it vertically, but not "scrollable" but just all right there, spread out.
I see that the Windows "Recent Items" only appears to track files...
Is what I'm looking for impossible? Like a drop-down (scrollable?) menu of Rent files and folders?
Leo, I found it -- I needed the "Recent Menu" command...
I'll have to screw aroid with RecentX and see if I can coordinate it with DirOpus.
