Automatic folder open



  • I thought this would be handy…that when I extract a large archive to a given folder, that that folder opens automatically in explorer or file manager of my choice (which is Q-Dir ATM).

    Cheers

  • The “Shell Extensions” configuration panel has a “Open folder after extracting” option, though there’s no obvious (to me) way to specify a file manager other than Explorer.

    Thanks for that. It would be handy if it were available from within PA, say a check box on the toolbar, so it could be used as a one-off. I tend to open PA (rather than use the shell extensions) for extracting large archives as I like to see what is in them first, like README files and manuals etc.

    in PA, it is in extract window (option there, hard to miss) :-).
