please provide 'open in a new window' instruction

Post by shukla10 » Sun Nov 16, 2014 9:32 am

Hello,

I am looking for a simple function to achieve with any button (preferably middle-click) i.e., In Windows Explorer whenever i click on a folder name with middle click, the folder should open in a new window.

For eg., Like it does when i press ctrl & double left-click the mouse button on a folder.

Is there a way to simulate this?

Yes you can do this using simulated keystrokes. Anything you can do in the keyboard/mouse should be possible using this option. I'm away right now but can provide detailed instructions when I get back.

Thanks,
Phil

Thanks, good to know that it can be done.

By myself I have gotten to {ctrl}{lmb}{lmb}, but this only takes the first {lmb} command so i guess this is not the correct way to simulate double left-click....

Waiting to hear from you.....

Hummm that should work - you may have to select "3. During" as the send action but it should work.
However, I'm struggling to get it to work here too which means I may have broken something.

I will investigate it right now :).

Try this:

Code: Select all

{LMB}{HOLDMS50}{CTRL}{LMB}
or 
{CTRL}{LMB}{HOLDMS50}{CTRL}{LMB}
The first one works perfectly here.

Glad it worked, I'm not sure why you had to log off and on again - that shouldn't make any difference!
