No,
because folders like MyComputer / Desktop are handled like network folders and I don't like it at all.
That's why I use for Desktop the personal desktop "C:/<user>/desktop".

Also I don't need the MyComputer folder, I can access to all drivers over the drive bar or how to call it.
And for the case I connect a portable device which doesn't appear in the bar I just open MyComputer over the menu.

No, because Explorer's logic is stupid and irritating.

I voted YES even if I am against it Smile

Reason: it may be helpful for people addicted to Explorer so an Option would not hurt.

I also think that it should be the part of configuration sets* (discussed before) which TC could offer during installation time.

*) Two configuration sets:
- standard configuration - as it is now,
- Explorer like - Desktop as top level, same shortcuts (i.e. F2 rename, F5 refresh), same columns etc.

BTW AL|EN it is called poll not pool Smile

Thank you. Also you idea is great. The first login startup screen allowing to choose the configuration will be also great.

Agree:) I wish an option in Explorer to revert normal behaviour when Backspace is always moves one level up instead of stupid 'go back' function that may be achieved using Alt+Left. Very Happy

But if we're talking about using Backspace in drive root to go to Computer, I agree that such option should be added. Even more, I think that TC should go to Computer from drive root on Backspace if already existing option to show [..] item in root is enabled. Logic is simple - if I see [..] item, I can go up using Backspace too. Wink

I don't need such option but if someone can't live w/o Explorer and he likes such Backspace behaviour, why not.

BTW I think you should describe both choices with details in first vote post.

Maybe I am the only one but I do not understand the sense of this poll.

Hello, Hacker.

You have to read the thread pointed to in the initial post of this poll carefully. It is about going back from the root of a drive by pressing backspace to "My Computer" (possible in T.C.) and to "Desktop" (not possible in T.C.).

What I do not like about this poll is that it is a black vs white poll: you either request this change or you reject it for no good reason at all.

I do not support the request. But I do not object to an option, either.

Reason:
Pretty simple: if I wished to use an Explorer clone, I would not be using Total Commander, but an Explorer clone.

Kind regards,
Karl

Hello karlchen,
I understand the poll and the options, I just do not understand the purpose.

Agree for an option to go to Desktop (cm_OpenDesktop) by Backspace. If it helps people to make work with TC easier it should be done.

Don't agree to switch to "My Computer" by Backspace. This fuction is useless for me. Drives are accessed faster by ALT+F1 / ALT+F2 or buttonbar.

You may already go to desktop by Esc, just assign cm_OpenDesktop to Esc. But current vote is for going to My Computer by Backspace from drive root.
