Thanks for the great app!
Just wanted to suggest some improvement for user convenience.
1. Add customizable icon for a parent menu (long awaited feature)
2. Autoload icons for disks/folders with icons (get shell icons)
3. Add "double click" modifier to Start Menu hotkeys (double clicking middle mouse button to open menu)

Hope you'll implement something in future.

Thanks Jim, much appreciated.

1. We'll see if this is possible to implement in one of the next releases.
2. Not sure what you mean - system folder icon is already used for path entries.
3. Very specific request, currently standard methods for opening the menus are used.

Marko, thanks for quick reply.
My second suggestion was about icons for disks/folders in Start Menu.
Currently after adding link to disk/folder (e.g. "C:\" or "D:\Videos") in Start Menu, you have to manually select icon for it, even if it is already selected in folder properties. Disks always have standart system icons, but in Start Menu they are shown as folders by default.

This is not an intuitive behavior.

One more request from me.
Is it possible to open links from Start Menu in already opened Explorer windows and open/save dialogs (for example, with right or middle mouse button click)? Currently all links open in new windows.
This would greatly simplify folder switching.

Not so easy but this script works for me (Type: Command):

Code: Select all

WinActivate, ahk_class CabinetWClass
Send, {f4}
Send, ^a
Send, C:\Program Files{Enter}

Works only in open/save dialogs for me, not in Explorer window. Address bar seems to ignore {Enter}
Doesn't work if Explorer window is not open.
Not a flawless variant for long addresses.

This was just an idea, feel free to adjust the script.
