At this time, only two keys can be used to alter the behavior of the main menu “click”: Shift and Control. Alt And Win close the menu before you can click in it. So I have only these three combination available.
Shift + Click: Open in new window.
Control + Click: Copy a Favorite’s Path or URL.
Shift + Control + Click: Edit a Favorite.
I choose these features because they are probably the most used Alternative menu features. What could be done is:
– check if other modifiers can be used or if Right/Left-Shift and Right/Left-Control could be distinguished. If yes, we have much more possibilities.
– make the three combination configurable in Options.
Check for the combination location + parameters.
Renamed wish item from “Support folders in Group for QAPconnect third party file managers” to
“Support left/right options when opening folders in Group for QAPconnect third party file managers”
Group are supported in QAPconnect file managers if the file manager options are correctly configured in the QAPconnect.ini file. What could be added is to support “Left/Right” option if file manager has left/right (or top/bottom) panes.
Add custom delay between each app inside the launching profile (not the same for all).
Suggested example: http://www.dcmembers.com/skwire/download/splat/
Could also be sorted by most used when usage stats is implemented.
In addition to switching settings file from the QAP system menu, add the option to the Options window. For example:
Reports on QAP usage, sending metrics to developer (if user accepts), suggest shortcut for most used favorites, suggest to sort menus by usage (instead of alpha).
As of 2018-10-28: Data collection is done. Frequent folders and Frequent files menue are created. User reports are still on the to-do list.
Need to remember the windows names or IDs of window when launched. Not all types of favorites can be closed.
Suggested by email, copied on the support group.
I’d like “Close All Windows” to allow closing of named processes instead of “opened” windows. This would allow me to close certain processes before starting a game (to free up memory on my feeble computer!).
Suggestion based on this post on support group.
Suggestion from Carsten.
List of commands:
– Exit QAP
– Restart QAP
– Edit QuickAccessPopup.ini
– Switch Settings file (ini)
… and why not all QAP features (see “QAP features” favorite type).
This would be done using QAPmessenger.exe to pass commands to the running instance of QAP.
Similar to the feature in Folders Popup (ancestor of QAP). Suggestion from Marcin.
Suggestion from Joe by email.
Suggestion from Nick.
Define variable at a group or submenu level (or global) that can be used in favorites properties. For example, in a “XYZ” submenu: set myvar=”xyz”. Then, within the submenu, use the variable %myvar% in the “Location”, “Start in”, “Parameters” or window x, y, width and height fields.
Suggestion received by email from Eric.
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).

Suggestion from Horst
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.
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.
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.
This would need to be an option because some users would prefer to decide when to reload QAP.
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.
This feature has been added to QAP v11.2.
