same shortcut key definitions as in classical Windows Explorer?

#1 Post by mgroen » 09.02.2020, 13:29

In classical Window File Explorer, I used to use keyboard shortcut cntrl+shift+N to create new folder.

Is it possible to set same definition to this shortcut key in FreeCommander (create new folder)?

Also, create same definition of shortcut keys as in Windows Explorer (alt+P to toggle preview pane for example).
list can be found on Microsoft site.

Can Freecommander be improved to include an option in settings so that (for those who want it) use same key definitions as in classical Windows Explorer.


Thanks,
Mathijs

Yes, it is possible to change the keyboard shortcuts.

Regarding different keyboard shortcuts in FC vs Explorer, I suggested Dual keyboard shortcuts. I updated that request, so you can add your support there, if you want, I think it would be a good solution for users who are using also the Explorer, or for those who came from Explorer.

I didn't know about some Explorer shortcuts, so I know, that for some former Explorer users it could be the same, they don't know standard file manager shortcuts, so dual keyboard shortcuts would be useful for them.

BTW Here is the list of standard Explorer / Windows keyboard shortcuts:

And list of default FC keyboard shortcuts:

You're welcome.

You can support any suggestion, just reply to an existing topic, as you did already, that's enough.
