FoldersPopup v4 ready for beta test – testers wanted

Release v3.2 of Folders Popup in now ready for beta tests. This release includes mainly additions that improve integration of FP with for Directory Opus (DOpus) version 11. Although, it is not freeware, DOpus is a remarkable file manager program that can replace Windows Explorer and proposes lots of features, including file compression and FTP capabilities. Take note that I'm not affiliated with the GPSoft (developers of Directory Opus) in any way. However, I'm thanking them for their support.

Regular Windows Explorer users will also find enhancements and bug fixes in this release.

What's new in v3.2 beta:

  • For Directory Opus (DOpus) users:
    • At Folders Popup startup, prompt to activate DOpus support if the software is found on the system.
    • Navigate user folders and recent folders in DOpus listers reliably and seamlessly using internal commands.
    • Enable special folders menus (My Computer, Network Neighborhood, Recycle Bin, etc.) in DOpus using built-in aliases.
    • The Switch Explorer menu combines in one menu the folders opened in Windows Explorer and listers in DOpus.
    • Use DOpus icons for listers in the Switch Explorer menu.
    • The Switch in dialog box menu proposes to open any folder opened in Windows Explorer or listers in DOpus.
    • Using the DOpus system command DOpusRt to change the current folder and gather information about listers for Switch Explorer or Add this folder menus.
    • Adapted support for special folders in DOpus (like search result windows).
