FARR Context menu
« on: November 01, 2008, 05:59:49 PM »
Hi,
is it possible to modify the context menu on FARR's search results?

I would like to be able to add/remove/change items on that menu, and possibly keyboard shortcuts for them (FARR is for keyboard maniacs after all...)

For example it would be cool if Copy and Paste were on that menu so I don't have to go to Shell context menu (a whole extra click :P )

But what I was thinking mainly was to enable plugins to change the menu dynamically (most if not all of the menu is completely useless when using plugins). Hopefully that would lead to some extra functionality from plugins.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

No thoughts? Anyone? Mouser?

To answer your question: no, I think it's currently not possible.

But I think it's on mouser's list as it has been requested before (even before I requested it ;) ). Well, what I asked for was the possibility for plugins to modify the context menu (and keyboard shortcuts). Your request seems to go even further than that, if I understand you correctly. Don't know in what way mouser plans to address this (and neither when).

Well, that is the essence of my request, plus the ability for the user to modify the menu by hand. I hope Mouser will look into it in some not so distant future release.
