How to see folder content in the other tab

Post by Nico » 20 Feb 2019 15:50

Hi,
I would love to click on a folder in the left tab (one clic) and see its content in the right tab (left/right is the same for me).
Is there a way to do this?

Thank you

I mean "panes" you can see in the picture attached. I usually call them tabs!
Ok: panes

Thank you very much, It seems it's perfect!
Now I have only to learn how to use scripts, I have a very little idea on how to use them

If you are still interested in another alternative, you could set the following tweak:

PFADefaultOpenFolders=1

for instructions on how to tweak: https://www.xyplorer.com/faq-topic.php?id=tweak

and then use a PFA entry something like this:

"Open Folders|:showfolders"\>::if (<get pane> == 1) { focus "PI"; } goto <pfaitem>;

You'd have to double click not a single click in the first pane though, alternatively you could set this config option:

Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Mouse | Single click on icon opens list items
