Excellent application, but it's really painful not to be able to right-click local files and open them in my favorite applications. The "Edit" command usually starts the wrong application. What is needed is "Open With..." dialog like in other Windows apps. Or at least "Explore this folder" to open the folder in Windows Explorer (so I can use it's context menu).
Here's how to display standard "Open With..." dialog for file named "filename" in Windows:
ShellExecute (0, "open", "rundll32.exe", "shell32.dll,OpenAs_RunDLL filename", NULL, SW_SHOW);

Thanks for your time and for making this fantastic application.
