Hmm, using the tab menu sounds like an interesting idea, and a separate internal command too...

Sorry for reviving a year-old thread. I just want to know if per-tab history ever did get added to a newer version of TC.
TIA

Sorry for reviving even older thread, but i could not find any information, that history-per-tab option is available now.
My case is about 10 tabs for every panel and having only global history makes me set history length to 100 or greater...

It will be almost ten years after first post and still no history per tab. I have about 10 tabs per side and have to enlarge history size to 100 to have access to some least used ones, but it is still too low for me, only because it is not possible to have different history for frequent and not very frequent used tabs.

Please re-read my comment above:
I have experimented with per tab history when I added the tabs, but it was just not usable. It's different from a Web browser where you normally open one site per tab, and then go to subpages of that site. In Total Commander, your PC is just one site, so you would often be in the situation where you need to go to a previous folder from a different tab.

What is not usable is to only have per tab history! But it is not stupid for who work with custom view on dedicated tab to have an optional filtered history per tab.

Christian,
Perhaps it could be done like this?

Code: Select all

[Tab History]
Tab History Item 1
Tab History Item 2
Tab History Item 3
...
Tab History Item 20
--------------------
[Global History]
Global History Item 1
Global History Item 2
Global History Item 3
...
Global History Item 20
An INI setting could be used:
TabHistory=1
1 = Global history only
2 = Per tab history only
3 = Global history on top, Tab history on bottom
4 = Tab history on top, Global history on bottom

Or there could be separate internal commands for global and tab histories?

You also mentioned using the Tab context menu sounded like a good idea.

@Author: It looks like my workflow is so different than Yours. I'm using tabs similar to pages on browsers and have multiple tabs (more than 10 per side) which i could name "projects". Mixing directories between "projects" are not useful at all and just misleading.
