As an ex-Acorn user (RiscOS) one convenient function I miss in Windows (XP SP2) is the ability to right-click the close button in explorer folder view to close the folder and also open its parent (like Windows 'up a level' option which uses an icon sometimes - if available).

A similar function worked when closing a file (right-click on the X), which would open the folder the file was in as well as closing the file. Makes browsing faster as you can move through folders in both directions with less clicks.  8)

Sound simple, but is it possible to implement in Windows?

I think this was a feature in OS/2 also, or I had a utility that added a button next to the close button that closed the folder and opened the parent.  Very handy.

I'd be interested in this also.

The closest I can get you is "Up One Level" which is a shell extension by SpiritPyre over at MSFN
Here's the thread http://www.msfn.org/...tensions-t52524.html

Guess it's redundant for me since I use QTTabBar and just double click on the folder background in Explorer to take me to the parent.

Mmm all interesting apps guys, but not quite what I'm looking for. I don't want yet another full program which includes a similar option, but want the simple tweak to performs the specific task.

Is anyone up for coding this?

 :) Try RightUpClose!

Rightclick an Explorer's close button to open the parent folder.

This is great!   

 :(  But I had to unload it because it disables the right-click menu for taskbar/toolbar/start menus.  More precisely, it's the items on the submenus/fly-out choices which can't be right-clicked.

Can this be fixed?

 :tellme: I had problems hitting the X button in Vista, so I added a few more window parts to react to. Try the version above.

I tried the new version, but I still can't right-click on an item in the fly-out menus of toolbars/quicklaunch etc.  It's as if I'm right clicking on what's underneath the icon (desktop, other window, etc)

But I'm happy to try anything you come up with since having this work would be very cool.
