Navigating network locations
« on: September 23, 2008, 04:09 PM »
Hey mouser! Find and Run Robot is really saving me some time at work, and I was wondering whether it would be possible to navigate UNC paths (a.k.a. \\computername\share\blah) with autocompletion? I'm sure it might not be as responsive as local paths, but it would still be nice to have. Or FARR should at least be able to recognize UNC paths, and then open them in Windows Explorer when the Enter key is pressed.

Just throwing an idea out there. Thanks again for making such a fabulous app!
