Description (last modified by Alexander Schuch)


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);

For more details about "Open with" dialog check out this article:

Thanks for your time and for making this fantastic application.

Yup, I vote for that too. When we set the selected extension with more than one editor, it would show up the "Open With" and the name of the editors to pick that are assigned to the selected extension file in the "Filetype associations" settings.
Sometimes you want to open in a editor that you get to compare files, other in other editor to translate files and so on. An "Open With" when right-clicking is a must have in FZ. ;0)
