Open selected files from a windows folder

<< < (2/3) > >>

tomos:
Only open one folder in the case of three shorcuts to folders.
What Am I doing wrong ?

You asked about opening files/programs, not opening folders.

I don't use File Explorer, but this may be covered in the Settings / Options. You possibly have it limited to always opening in the same window?
EDIT// which would only allow one folder to open

In general seems a difficult subject.

I have a script made in this forum for open all url contained in a folder. With an option in the context mouse menu.
But I haven't see nothing similar for opening a set of files. Even configurable.
Open selected files from a windows folder

If simply is possible to configurate a similar option to open subfolders, programs, urls, shortcuts....

did you try what I suggested?

tomos:
Okay, File Explorer: select items, press return :huh:


* if more than one file is selected, only one file opens
* if a file and a folder are selected, the folder opens (file doesnt open)
* if files and multiple folders are selected, the folders open (see my post about about allowing multiple instances of File Explorer) but the files do not open
In Directory Opus:
select any number of files and folders - each opens as expected (folders in seperate windows)

Directory Opus is a paid program.
I need only a script for this.
As you express windows explorer don't do what I am asking for.
Best regards
