[Wishlist] Support relative paths in shared menu as relative to the shared menu settings file location (instead of the QAP working directory)

Suggestion from Gideon.
Suggestion from Helge.
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".
"QuickAccessPopup"="C:\\Program Files\\Quick Access Popup\\QuickAccessPopup.exe"

[Wishlist] Add double clicking in addition to Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Windows modifiers of a QAP hotkey button
See BorisB post (#3)
See post from BorisB (#2)
See info about .msc applets:
.msc apps icons are not naved in the .msc file itself (as it is for applications). There must be a call in the registry to get the default icon. More research needed.

Help from an AHK developer using a russian keyboard would be greatly appreciated on this one.
[Wishlist] When using a third party file manager, use this file manager only if you call QAP from it, otherwise open new windows with Windows Explorer
Add to Options dialog box a section to list apps to exclude from the Switch menu by listing their window title (beginning of).
Personally, I would exclude “Groove Musique” and “Film et TV” (in French) because they are launched automatically by Windows 10 and, for "Movie and TV", without an option to turn it off.
See this thread.
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).

Can you set double Click in empty white space as a Hotkey?
Find a solution to the issue with the “Select Folder” dialog box with tree view (aka "Brouwse for folder") caused by a Windows limitation (Edit1 control not handling the Enter as other file dialog boxes).
More info on this issue:
I would like to have a new tab named “Group members” in the add group menu.
This should allow to add group members while creating a new group.
In Settings, add tooltip on hover over various commands (especially those on left side of Settings window)
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.
Could you confirm the exact behavior of this feature? Source in left pane and target in right pane?
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.
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...
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) ?
Suggestion from joby_toss on Portable Freeware forum
Basic clipboard manager (save last X copied items – files or text – for later pasting)
Add a setting to hide paths that are not working (for example, when a USB drive not connected to the computer). Also add an option to hide empty submenus (if all paths under a submenu are hidden also hide the submenu). Those needs to be 2 different settings.
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] Multi-Monitor support option to open the favorite on the monitor where the mouse was clicked
Feature Request: Multi-Monitor support
Description: To open the QAP entry on the Monitor where the mouse click was initiated.
Presently when I middle click in Monitor #2 and try to open a folder, it opens in Monitor #1 (default monitor).
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."
Please consider adding something like Current Folders ("Reuse an Open Folder") that lists the two folders currently open in the two panes of Total Commander. (...0 Better yet, add a configuration option to change the behavior of Current Folders to list the open folders of either Explorer or your favorite file manager.
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!
As seen in Folder Menu (if I remember well). It makes sense to have recent and current folders to be presented in the same list since it answers the same need to find something accessed recently.
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.
Since my development tools do not support drag and drop inside list views, I would have to code it myself. Big effort for an interesting but probably not a must-have feature.
