PromptHere v. 1.1
I find I do try to use this utility as joby_toss
It's intuitive to select something in the folder you are working
in and hit a hotkey to open a prompt there.
I eliminated "paranoia mode" and set the hotkey active even if the
current window is not an explorer window. Hopefully there aren't
too many apps out there using Alt Middle Mouse Click.
Now it should work in file managers.
(I tried it in FreeCommander and it seems ok.)
Also if you select one or more items that
are not folders, a single prompt will open
with the enclosing folder as working directory.
(I limit it to one to avoid the silly circumstance where
24 selected files in a folder would provoke opening
24 prompts to the same working directory.)
I've dodged the more difficult case of being in
an empty folder. If there's nothing to click on
in the folder anyway it keeps the utility simpler
if you just go up one folder and select. This
avoids a whole bunch of code to read the
window text and extract the folder. The
HomeFolder utility already does that. (HomeFolder
is AutoIt3 and this utility is in AHK or else I'd just
cut & paste to add it in.)
for prodding me to make this
I've updated the hotkey page. PromptHere 1.1 is available for download now.
