I'm looking a "frequent" menu hack?

the first item is 33284 the second 33285 and so on. However as these entries change as you use the program I don't know if there's any use for them

As an observation, it's curious that "Recent Folders" is available as a menu ID (to induce the popup independent of the menu itself [32945] - also as a custom keyboard element), yet the semantically similar "Frequent" is not (well, at least not in any practical sense). :shrug: Hobgoblins and inconsistencies are rife within the seminary of Nikosian Logic... :wink:

I know K has re-jiggled his x2 installation :)

But there's one thing I've wanted do, and that's to change the right-click popup in a blank space in the file list.

Right-click in a blank space
New File
New Folder
....

I've wanted to add Save Folder Settings to this list.

I'm sure if I get one 'hack' though it'll just whet my appetite.

Also don't want to agitate the internal checks / md5 / warez checks it does.

Hurt my head, couldn't be bothered after that. :)

And like many of us, may have grumbled, then put up with it...

That's what the xplorer2 "context-menu sub-menu thingy" © is for - just use Organise -> Add new -> Actions -> 'Folder Settings -> Save' and you can save folder settings whenever you like by right-click. Of course, then you probably would want to add the Clear settings, etc, too... but your own clutter is your own mess. :D

Ok, it's not the same menu as you wanted it in, but even though this "context-menu sub-menu thingy" © is horribly thought out in typical Nikosian-fashion, it's not wholly unusable. :wink:

Thanks for that. I recalled seeing the xplorer2 menu, but never got around to using it.
The entry is available when you right-click a file (not blank space)... I recalled it working in the blank space?

Anyhow, it's good enough for my needs :)
