I've updated HalfShell so that you may use it with 3rd party file managers that accept command line params for folders to open on startup. Seems Windows64 is erratic when it comes to the "32 bitness" of Explorer in the SysWow64 directory. You can see some info about the issue here:http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=21521.0
To work around that, you may specify a file manager to use instead.
FreeCommander is an example of the type of app I'm talking about,
but any similar program that will let you specify folders to open on
the command line should work.
Basically the strategy is, if you don't set any 3rd party file manager, if
you have a SysWow64 directory with an explorer.exe in it, it will use that.
Otherwise it will just use the default Explorer.exe.
If you specify a 3rd party file manager, it will use that. You can check
and uncheck the option in the Tray Menu to toggle the behavior.
Now there is only one hotkey. Shift-Enter.
If you are using the file manager or "alternative shell" option, only
the first 2 folders pulled from the clipboard will be sent to the program.
If not, as many folders as you highlight should be opened in their
own Explorer windows.
If you use a file manager nearly all the time this utility is of little use.
But I use Explorer most of the time. I invoke a file manager usually to
use a bunch of programs I have set up in the toolbar on files in a
particular folder. For me it's worth it to have a way to invoke it with
a particular folder or 2.
edit: just to clarify, no matter if the SysWow64 explorer.exe is 64 bit or 32 bit,
hitting the hotkey should still open the folders. The only issue with the "32 bitness"
is that if the explorer is 32 bit, your 32 bit Shell Extensions may work. This is the
reason you may wish to use a 32 bit file manager as the "alternative shell."
