#5166 new Feature request

Completely hide the local directory pane

Because FileZilla supports drag-and-drop, i thing it woulod be a neat option to have a button next to the two "Toggle display for the local/remote directory tree" with "Toggle display of the local file borwser" which would hide *both* the directory tree and the file list of the local file system.

Rationale: in this way i can add in the registry a new action "FileZilla..." attached to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell" and to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell" which would simply open the FTP client window without the local file browser view, and then i can just drag-and-drop files and folders from explorer (or nautilus or whatever) to/from the remote FTP window. I think it's such an easy thing to do that it'd worth the half-an-hour effort.

Additionally (and somehow complementary) to the suggestion above, it would also be neat to have a command line option to open a specified path *in the local file system*.

Rationale: as described in the suggestion above, this would allow various options of integrating FileZilla with file manager right-click, e.g. open a specified folder on the local file system when starting FilzeZilla.

I'd like this feature also, love FileZilla, but not at all using the local filebrowser!

+1 - will we ever see this feature? It's pretty much getting in my way (I'd like to see the remote browser fully expanded).
