Alt+Tab to the file manager, Alt+Tab back to the dialog
Ok, I added a similar feature to SaveAsPathHelper.ahk just now.
Alt+Tab from file dialogue window to Explorer window and back within 5 seconds: update file dialogue window with Explorer path
Listary supports most of the popular 3rd-party file managers
Doable, but would for each such file manager need this pair of information:
- how to detect the window (what AutoHotkey's Window Spy utility shows as ahk_exe and ahk_class when the file manager is active)
- how to get the current folder path from the window (I guess this varies, but whatever Listary is doing this script could probably also do if the method is public e.g. getting path from window title, control text, DDE, windows message, keyboard shortcut, ...)
I don't use any of the listed file managers but if anyone who does gives me the above info pair I might add support for it.
