open home folder in explorer replacement?
- I have a toolbar button to open the home folder for the current NTP
file, which I find convenient:
I'd like to know if I can alter the clip to open the file's home
folder in a double paned explorer replacement. This is the program
"D:\Program Files\Servant Salamander 2.0\salamand.exe" -L
There is a L and R parameter I've added to the context menu to target
- Hi Michael,
I assume you can. Maybe this helps...
I have 2xExplorer and it works with...
^!Shell "C:\Program Files\2xExplorer\2xExplorer.exe" "^$GetPath(^**)$"
Lookup the spec for the commandline and try it with the Run command.
Then mimic that after ^!Shell...
Apparently there is an issue with foldernames containing spaces, just
stumbled on that... May have to do with 2xExplorer.

I didn't know about the shell command. I learned some basics of the
NTP clip language a few years ago, but it seemed to be evolving, so I
decided I'd wait until NTP v.5 or so to try to learn any complexities.
I happened to have 2xExplorer installed from when I was comparing
dual paned explorers, so I first tried that and found it opened the
file's home folder, but only about 80% of the time; the rest of the
time it defaulted to desktop. I couldn't tell what made it not work --
not length, or nesting level, or spaces in the path...
To get the command to work with Salamander, I discovered I had to
add -L (or -R) or Salamander interpreted the clip code as an invalid
parameter. It seems to work 100% of the time. It's my favorite new
^!Shell "D:\Program Files\Servant Salamander 2.0\salamand.exe" -L
I also installed AppPaths, and haven't been able to make much sense
of it yet. But I did find I needed to use the entire path and double
