Windows 8 Open Folder With

Posted on

QUESTION :

I decided to switch to a different file explorer. Like how Windows uses Windows Explorer. I will be using MultiCommander. I would like any folders that are opened, to be opened in MultiCommander. How do I do this? Folders could be anything on the desktop, start menu etc. You could also open the folder in other programs such as WinRAR or 7z.

Thanks in advance!

ANSWER :

This hack should work for you.

Edit the PATH below or inside the attached .reg file to match the path to where you have MultiCommander.exe

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshell]
@="MultiCommander"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshellMultiCommander]
@="Open in MultiCommander"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshellMultiCommandercommand]
@=""C:\Program Files\MultiCommander\MultiCommander.exe"" /OPEN %1""
