[Wishlist] Configure Explorer Context menus

From Steffen:

It would be great to have the possibility to select which actions are shown in the Explorer context menus. For example, when right clicking on a folder in Explorer, I would like to have "Add Folder to Quick Access Popup menu Express" instead of "Add Folder to Quick Access Popup menu" (I know I could use Shift+Rightclick to get the Express entry, but I would prefer this entry at a simple right-click.) Maybe you could also abbreviate the entry: "Add Folder to QAP menu Express".

[Wishlist] Add a dynamic menu built from Directory Opus favorites

From Anjan: I have a lot of favourites in Dopus and find it very daunting to move all of them to QAP.
I would like to have a easy way to import the favourites to QAP. Could you please add this feature or help me with a workaround.

My reply: I could write a script to import DOpus favorites. But my preference would be to add a "QAP Feature" to show a menu dynamically build from DOpus favorites list. (similar to Total Commander Directory Hotlist).

[Wishlist] Support target path in Total Commander Directory Hotlist

Suggestion from Horst:
There is one function missing for the TC dir menu. TC allows to also set the target path for an entry but QAP only sets the source path of such entries.

Jean
Could you confirm the exact behavior of this feature? Source in left pane and target in right pane?

Horst
No, Source in whatever the current active pane is, Target on the other side.
But I guess most users including me would also accept Source on left and Target on right side.

[Wishlist] Play sound when opening menus and launching favorites

From Loving Beast

How about creating sound events for not only people who are blind, but also like their computers to talk to them, per selection? I mean, a sound event option for when opening the QA menu, and then an option for when a menu item is opened or selected would be great! Although I really do enjoy it already, I think it would be a nice option for a future update to have. Keep up the good work...

[Wishlist] Supporting Mouse-modified hotkeys (combining two mouse buttons to show the menu)

Comments from joby_toss on Portable Freeware forum

I'm also facing a small issue: I'm a "mouse only" guy and Middle Click hotkey to show the menu interferes with my internet browser (close tab, open link in new tab) and my files browser (open folder in new tab), so QAP is stealing it from those apps.
Would it be possible to combine 2 mouse buttons to show the menu (e.g. Middle Click while Right Button is pressed) ?
Thank you!

[Wishlist] Reload QuickAccessPopup.ini when it is changed without having to reload the app

Suggested by Sébastien on Folders Popup website:

I noticed that the FolderPopup.ini is only read one time (at startup time). If I manually edit the file, I have to close and restart FolderPopup to see my changes.

I would be really usefull to add a feature that verify is FolderPopup.ini has changed before showing the application. If the file has changed (check file size and modified date), then reload the configuration.

This will allow the user to edit FolderPopup.ini on the fly using a script (a logon script for example).

 

My reply: This is a good idea that would be implemented in QAP.

[Wishlist] Option to always open the folders in the running instance

Originally suggested for Total Commander by Horst, but applicable to Explorer and other file managers.

Horst: "I would like a Total Commander option to always use the running instance (/o) even without using the Tab option. Currently I accumulate many tabs which I have to close manualy. I think this will be liked by many TC users to."

Jean: "When you open the QAP menu in a current TC window, it change the folder to navigate inside the current window. If you open a folder using the popup menu from another window, it will open a new tab or a new TC instance. What you want is an option to always change folder the current TC window?"

Horst: "Yes, exactly. I often use the left click from the tray menu and not a pop-up from inside of a TC window."

[Wishlist] Open QAP menu when mouse over the QAP tray icon

Suggestion from RandomGuy001

Offer an option to open the to launch the FoldersPopup (or QuickAccessPopup) window upon mouse over of the icon in the system tray. This would be exactly the same as left-clicking the icon in the system tray now, only it would be launched by mouse-over instead. I have a program that I use (SE-TrayMenu) for this very purpose, shortcuts to common locations. If I could merge these two programs that would be indispensable!

[Wishlist] Track recent items in QAP, in addition to system Recent items

In Folders Popup, the Recent Folders menu present the x most recent folders found in the Windows virtual folder “Recent items” (C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent Windows). See this discussion for more info.

In QAP, this menu could also memorize the most recent folders accessed using QAP, regardless of Window's list. Also, I saw in Folder Menu (if I remember well) that this list also included Current Folders (folders actualy open in Windows Explorer). See this item.
