Nested favorite folders

Post by evangelina »

Can we have nested favorite folders like the hamburger icon in the breadcrumb bar?
It might be useful for users with lots of favorite folders like me...

Alternatively, you could use the popupnested() function to do something similar through scripting, but with a lot more flexibility; A custom menu with your favorite folders and other functions, very handy when assigned to something like a CTB or hotkey.

Here's a template if you're interested.

Code: Select all

A custom context menu for accessing common shortcuts/programs/folders/functions

1 tab per submenu

Parameter short-hands start at 0
function(0:=parameter0, 3:=parameter3, 8:=parameter8)
ex: run(0:=command, 3:=show)


0) Folders||<xyicons>\folders\favorite_folder.ico
    0) Downloads|goto lax("%userreal%\Downloads\")|"%userreal%\Downloads\"
    2) This PC|goto lax("%computer%")|"%computer%"
    3) Recycle|goto lax("%recycler%")|<xyicons>\folders\recyclebin.ico
    4) PaperFolders||:paper
    5) %user%||"%userreal%"
        %user%|goto lax("%userreal%")|"%userreal%"
        Desktop|goto lax("%desktop%")|%desktop%
        Documents|goto lax("%userreal%\Documents\")|%userreal%\Documents\
        Music|goto lax("%userreal%\Music\")|%userreal%\Music\
        Pictures|goto lax("%userreal%\Pictures\")|%userreal%\Pictures\
        Videos|goto lax("%userreal%\Videos\")|%userreal%\Videos\

    // Display the context menu and return the selection
    $command = popupnested($MENUTEMPLATE, 7:="|");

    // Run the selected command or trigger if the data is an id #
    if ($command && !regexmatches($command, '^\#\d+$')) { load $command,, s; }
