There are several scripts, such as this one but it's not working that reliability in my experience.

There are also scripts that allow to select a currently opened folder from a list, which is more convenient than nothing, but it's still not as efficient.

Fair enough. You make a valid point.
To me, however, FARR is more than a program launcher. It's more of a platform for getting around the system and performing quick actions that would otherwise be less convenient.

Yes, I've also noticed that Listary spins up a couple of processes to achieve this. I guess there's no way around it and wouldn't mind FARR doing the same if need be.
I've gotten so used to this feature that I honestly struggle to go back.

A while ago I've discovered Listary's Quick Switch function, and it became indispensable in my workflow ever since.
I like FARR better overall but I'm greatly missing this functionality. I was wondering if there might be a way to add this functionality to FARR natively or using a plugin/clever hack.

I'm aware that one can mimic this functionality using an AHK script, but would prefer not to have to run another program in the background just to achieve this.

I just downloaded another copy of FARR portable, and now it is listed as expected (single process) in the Task Manager.
I might copy my existing settings just to check if it changes anything.

Update: I copied the settings ini file to the new FARR folder, and FARR is displayed as a single entry in the Startup tab of the Task Manager.
I have not clue what went wrong, but everything is working fine now.

Thank you.

Find And Run Robot / FARR child startup entries in Windows 8.1

I noticed that under the Startup tab there are few item listed under the FARR entry (see screenshots).

I vaguely recall that a long time ago I tried to launch these programs with FARR or something, but the details are a little fuzzy on me now, and I don't find any indication of this in FARR's settings.
Also, although the entries are listed, the actual programs are not launched.

I'm using FARR v2.213.01 Portable

Any hints about why these entries are there so I could remove them?

Thank you
