Assuming we are talking about LaunchBar Commander..

Is there a way of create menu with favorite folders, when we click to open folder with default explorer ?

I think you are asking how to simply add items to your dock so that when you click them they open a Folder using windows explorer.

You can do so easily.  Simply add an item and choose the "Command - a program, file, folder, or url" and specify the path to the folder below where it says "Command path".

For example:
Screenshot - 1_26_2018 , 10_37_43 AM_ver002.png

Note that you can change the icon as well to something customized.



I'll note that you can also have LBC display the CONTENTS of the menu directly if you prefer by using the "Folder" node type, but I think you probably already know that.  However you may not know that if you choose this option you can still right-click on a folder and get a menu that lets you open the folder.

^ That's what I assumed as we're in the LBC section of DC.

Hi

Yes, that was what i asking for.
Part that make confuse was , when you open command path it will ask for exe,bat, - you cant select folder.



So, i just put manually folder path and its done :). Thanks for assistance  :Thmbsup:


btw Insert Image is different from most of forums ...... there is popup on click but no explanation how to use. Its not big deal just for info
Thanks 1 more time..... :)

I fixed your image.  The difference from other forums is that you have to upload the image as an attachment, and then insert it into the post as an image.  This way makes it so that the image is hosted on the DC server in case the other server goes down, and it also keeps the browser away from questionable advertising techniques.

I have no idea what has happened but as of this morning all my directory nodes are dead.  That is to say they don't launch Windows Explorer when left-clicked.  I can right-click however and choose the open command from the PUM and that works.  All other nodes (Folder, command, etc.) are fine.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ok let's see.. Can I assume that you have the latest version?
When you say your directory nodes -- you mean nodes where they are supposed to show the contents of a folder in a menu?
Or are you talking about nodes that you click and they are supposed to launch windows explorer and open the folder?
What happens when you click them?
Have you looked at the node from the LBC config, does it show the correct path?

Have you tried restarting LBC?
