cm_EditPath on right mouse click at directory path

Post by *arko »

I am trying to replicate default behaviour of "Double Commander" where right-click on the directory path switches it to the edit mode.

In Total Commander, this would be a cm_EditPath, however I can't assign it the specific action mentioned above.

Here is the short video that hopefully clarifies the idea, mouse performs the right-click, Image: https://i.imgur.com/Wro6F29.gif

If I understand,, you have just to assign some combination of keys (for example Ctrl-Shift-F2) to cm_EditPath.
Here, my assigned key works exactly as in Double Commander.

Yes, I am using `;` as the hotkey and it works. Was wondering if "right mouse click" assignment is possible.

You cannot assign commands to mouse events in TC, You will need help from a third-party program (like AHK) for that.

Usually, you can use external hotkey with mouse trap or automation tool, this include AHK but also autoIt, Powerpro,...
But in your case, RightClick is already used by TC to open contecxtmenu for folder.
Left click do exactly what you need if you click on the file mask...

Not quite. In TC there is a noticeable pause and unless panel is already in focus left click does not result in the selected path.
