7901Re: clip to change Explorer view to focused file?
- Dec 3, 2001Hi all,
The one shortcoming of all the versions using the "select" command
parameter to pre-select the file is that focus is left in the left
Hitting [F6] when the explorer window comes up, switches to the right
side - Can anybody think of a way to get this done from the clip?
Working on what already was proposed, I added a %File%-variable,
which is typed in the right-hand pane (TAB / SHIFT TAB to switch
panes)... I noticed that the timing may require some tweaking. Delay
20 works for me, but use it with care. I also noticed that NoteTab
tends to hang if the explorer-window cannot be refreshed properly.
(Happened twice, but I do not know exactly when - The Clipbar turned
empty - CTRL+ALT+DELETE worked after waiting 15 seconds or so).
About Keyboard ALT+F4 to exit Explorer: yes, there are some
applications that do not exactly what you'd expect. Especially system-
based tools such as Explorer, Find etc. tend to ignore these keyboard-
strings. I think you'll habve to live with the workarounds...
