Select-on-paste in same path?

Postby admin » 09 Mar 2018 12:32

In 2012, when I still had WinXP, I did this:

Code: Select all

v11.40.0102 - 2012-08-10 09:17
     * List: From now on copies of items created in the same path as the
      original items (by Duplicate or Paste) are not auto-selected
      anymore but the selection stays on the original items. This is in
      accordance with Windows Explorer behavior and indeed makes more
      sense.


But now I noted in Win8.1 the Windows File Explorer *does* select the copy. Hm. Should I adapt the behavior, or make it optional via configuration?

Some cases where this is relevant:
- select a file, do Ctrl+C, then Ctrl+V in the same location
- press Ctrl+D (File | Duplicate | Copy Here with Increment)
