Unset BACKSPACE as cks (custom keyboard shortcut); build an UDC (user defined command) with the following code; set BACKSPACE as hotkey (CKS) for it.

Code: Select all

#523; $item = "<curpath>"; if (exists("$item") == "0") { end 1; } elseif {  } while (FolderSize($item, '<d>', 0) <= '1' && FolderSize($item, '<f>', 0) <= '1' && listfolder($item, "*", 32) <= '1') { #523; $item = "<curpath>"; } focus;
Also considering use of "focus" so I can fix the often occurrence of random focus on tree (previously reported).

EDIT: using exists() for a short way to deal with special folders on "drives" list mode.
What if I wanted to use the "double click on empty space" to perform all this?

I'll play with CEA_ListRightClickOnWhite=6 and see what happens, although I find backspacing faster than dbl-clicking...

How are you guys using the tweak PFADefaultOpenFolders

It only works with \> for me. I am unable to add any specific folder or with wildcards. Are you outsourcing the work to a script

Didn't answered because I use it full fledged, not much time for testing as of now - sorry!

Did you find a nice way to make use of it. I am still thinking how I can optimally use it.

PFADefaultOpenFolders has issues with opening folders that start with Dot (eg. .Folder, .Dir)

It doesn't navigate to such folders. If it is a known extension (known by windows or has a PFA assigned to it) like .jpg - it will open the default application. If it is an unknown extension like .folder, it won't do anything.

Similarly, if a folder is named like Folder.jpg it will again treat it as a file where Folder.Folder works fine.

They are all folder names, even when they look like file names
Folder.Folder -> Navigates fine
Folder.Jpg -> Treated as a file and the default application for jpg is opened
.Jpg -> Treated as a file and the default application for jpg is opened
.Folder -> It didn't do anything earlier (but now it navigates properly to the folder. I had flipped the tweak and that probably fixed it)

No such issues here. Please give more information. E.g. the exact PFA definitions and their sequence.

There isn't any PFA for folders, everything is for file so don't know if this is useful. PFADefaultOpenFolders is set to 1.

Making a wild guess, is it do with the fact I mention the extensions directly rather than as *.ext


Edit: PFA list removed

Aah! I thought in the opposite direction. OK, issue confirmed.

Wow that was quick, I was still editing the post because those 500 formats supported by XNview was causing a huge horizontal scroll bar. I will remove the PFA list.
