#12063 new Feature request

New item in context menu Open file location

There is Open option in context menu (Local files list), but one have to scroll down to an empty space to use it in order to open file location. Would be much easier to add new option in the context menu Open file location.

It should work differently for Files and Folders:

With a File Selected:
Pls open Windows Explorer with the file highlighted as it does when you select Open File Location from Windows Explorer's Recent Files view.

With a Folder Selected:
Pls open Windows Explorer inside the folder that was selected.

Should not be available when multiple files/folders are selected.

In case we have 20 folders, than we still cannot open the current folder in Windows Explorer, which was the point in first place. Therefor I would suggest to always show one context menu Open File Location, just below the Open.

I'm not exactly sure what ur saying here, but if NOTHING is selected, then it should work the same as Open Folder, but open the parent folder, so the Explorer view wud be the same as in ur screenshot with nothing highlighted.

The problem is, when there are plenty of files, than one cannot select none of them via right click and open folder. Maybe I was not accurate enough, maybe that option should be called "Open destination folder", an option we see in many other applications in Windows.
The problem is common, just browse local files where you have plenty of files and folders and try to open destination folder, specially when the Filezilla window is small.

I see what ur saying. In that case, it isn't an option. You can "physically" only select a file/folder, so it shud either not be displayed, or the option is disabled; greyed out.

No need for more confusion, simply the context menu option to show local files in Windows Explorer. Please take a look at screenshot I added.

Other Windows desktop app solutions for the same functionality:
Skype - Show in folder
Viber - Show in Folder
Windows Explorer - Open File Location
AstroGrep - Open Directory
qBittorent - Open Containing Folder

Looks great as long as all situations (file/folder/nothing) are covered. Thank you!
