When I right click a tab and use the function ‘Open Windows Explorer’ the corresponding directory will be opened in windows explorer.
I am using a custom explorer, called ‘Directory Opus’ which is much more convenient and this explorer is capable to re-route calls of windows explorer. In other words, if I use a such a function in any program, Dopus will open instead of windows explorer.
However, there are a few exceptions, where windows explorer is hardcoded and EmEditor is one of them. I already studied their forum and they explained that the application must use the SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems API call instead of calling hardcoded explorer.exe with the /select parameter.
Feel free to check details here:
If I got that right, there are no other disadvantages, this is just a more modern approach and for users that only have the standard windows explorer, the behaviour is the same as before.
Much appreciated, if there is any chance that this will be updated in a future release.
Thanks a lot,

That’s brilliant! I will use SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems on the next version.

Awesome, thank you so much!
If by any chance this function also could be added to the normal file menu, that would be a big plus. (At the moment this function can only be chosen from the tab menu if I got that right).
Again, many thanks for support!

You can right-click on an file list item in the file menu, and select “Open Windows Explorer”. Please see:April 3, 2017 at 12:39 am #21647
Aw, that’s how it works:)

This works great now, many thanks!
Is there a way to assign a keyboard shortcut to this function?April 6, 2017 at 9:57 am #21678
Unfortunately, currently there are no ways to assign a keyboard shortcut to the Open Windows Explorer command. I will consider that in future versions.

Is this now possible in 16.7.1? Tried to figure out how, but still couldn’t get it to work.

No, it is NOT included in v16.7.1. If this is important, I will included this feature on the next major version.

Coincidentally I’ve just started switching over to XYplorer as my replacement for Window Explorer and stumbled across the same issue!
Many thanks for including this in your future roadmap 🙂
