Highlight/select the same folder when going one level up!

Post by RedStar88 »

Hi,
I really miss this Windows Explorer feature in Explorer++

This is a big time saver and not having the feature is annoying.
Here is what I mean:
In Windows Explorer (I'm using list view) when I have hundreds of folders in a folder (or even just a few dozens folders)
and then double click a folder, I move into that folder, right?
Now, if I click "back" (well I rather use one of the extra buttons on my mouse to quickly browse back)
then in Windows Explorer that folder that I previously double clicked on, will be selected and I don't need to scroll!

This having that folder selected AND not having to scroll is a really, really good feature.
But that feature is missing completely in Explorer++!

It is a great time saver to be able to jump back to the same place in a folder one level above.

PLEASE ADD THAT FEATURE!
Thanks.

Another quick way to go back is to hit the back/delete key on keyboard (instead of clicking the small back button in the program).
But again:
The important functionality of automatically (pre)selecting the previous folder AND scrolling to that folder is completely missing in Explorer++.

I hope you add this feature soon.
It is really annoying to browse back and forth in folders with hundreds of items without this auto-select and "auto-scroll" feature.

The development version currently selects the appropriate folder when navigating up, but not when you go back (since it's more involved coding wise). Will probably be in the next version though.

Hello!

Was this feature implemented?
I installed explorer++ 1.4.0.1637 beta (64-bit build) in portable mode and still don't see any selection when going level up or back.

Regards
