How to focus a Download files?

Post by luciano_f »

When I download via any type of browser like Chrome or Opera when I click on the file I downloaded and go to the option
"Show in Folder" opens XYplorer but does not focus on the file you downloaded, that is, it has no focus but in the right folder, then I have to search for the file.

Which setting should I check to always focus the file ?

Going by the command line switches available to XYplorer, this isn't possible unfortunately.

Here is best solution I saw:
[AHK] redirecting Windows Explorer to XY
Though it needs some preparations to work.

Yes, problem confirmed. It's mysterious how this works. Only the folder is passed to XYplorer, not the file. I have no idea which secret channel is used to inform the file manager about the file. :|
