This doesn't work for files with different extensions .... There is no such menu item in this case. (At least for me)

You could add an internal association for *.* where you leave the default verb empty, and just add your own verb to open the file.

May be I don't understand something, but how this helps me to open different files with corresponding program in one key click?

Not in one click, but via right click context menu.

Thanks Balderstrom.

Do you by any chance know how to make the command line parameters %P%S work when setting up the editor for F4 (Configuration-Options-Edit/View).

There is a command line for invoking the editor, mine says "C:\Program Files\UltraEdit\uedit32.exe" (without the quotes)

Cheers,
Venkman
I also cannot find solution for send parameters %P%S to use F4 for Editor. Of cause I can open multi file when creating Button bar.

Hi @ghisler
When I selected some files and hit "F3" key then Lister can open all selected files. But when I hit "F4" key then only focus selected file is opened.
I wonder why TC doesn't support parameter %P%S in "Editor for F4" instead %1 like "View for F3" support %P%S

If you for example want Notepad to be able to open all marked files at once, you first do this: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/intassoc1.png
Then you can mark several files, right click one of them and choose the first item in the right click menu: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/intassoc2.png

Or like this:
