Automatically focus copied file

Postby John_C » 16 May 2018 20:23

Is there a way to automatically focus the copied file when it was copied to the same folder?

For example, I have

Code: Select all

C:\Users\John\Desktop\Test
folder. In this Test folder I have one text file: File.txt. After I pressed Ctrl-C Ctrl-V the file will be copied, but the focus is preserved on original file.

It's very unconvenient for me, because my typical workflow is: 1. Create a copy, 2. Rename it, 3. Done! In default Windows file manager it is very straightforward: just press Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, F2. In XYplorer it's much harder. After copying, you should manually find the copy with your eyes and manually select it. When I need to repeat this workflow many times in the folder which already is full of files - it really drives me crazy.

Is there an option to fix it?

I posted it here, in "Wishes" section, instead of "Questions and Answers" section, because I believe it's not possible currently! :-(

You need at least 18.80.0004

- Set / check if this tweak is set to 1 (https://www.xyplorer.com/faq-topic.php?id=tweak): ListSelectOnPasteInSamePath=1
- Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Custom Copy Operations | [x] Use Custom Copy

@highend Thank you :beer: . Well, I use version 17. Probably I need an update.
