File Context Menu

File Context Menu

The file context menu is displayed whenever you right click on the file or folder in the LogViewPlus file browser. Note that some actions may be disabled or hidden when accessing a remote file system.



1. Open

Opens the currently selected file in LogViewPlus.

If you would like to open a file in another program, you can use the "Open With" command instead. Please see the "quick access" item below for more information.


Add to Quick Access

2. Add to Quick Access

The "add to quick access" command will only be displayed when you right-click on the folder. If you right-click on the file and "open with" command will be displayed instead.

Adding a folder to the quick access menu is useful when you frequently access the folder and you want that folder to be available regardless of your recent history settings. Note that removing a folder from the quick access list has no impact on the underlying file system.

The open with command can be used to open a file in another application. Note that you will need to have the alternative application preconfigured. This is can be achieved in the open with applications file system settings. Note that if the file exists on a remote machine it will be downloaded before being opened by the target application.


Cut Copy Paste

3. Cut Copy Paste

The cut copy and paste commands can be used to copy or move files. These commands are only available when working with the local file system.



4. CopyPath

The copy path command can be used to copy the full path to the target file or directory. When working with remote files the full URL to the target will be copied.



5. Explore

The Explorer command can be used to open the target directory in Windows Explorer. This command is only available when working with local file systems.


Shell Context

6. Shell Context

The shell context command can be used to display the Windows Explorer context menu for the selected item. Note that if you select "Open" from the shell context menu LogViewPlus will interpret this to mean that you want to open the file in LogViewPlus as opposed to the Windows configured default application.



7. Delete

The delete command can be used to remove the selected file or directory. When working with local file systems deleted items will be moved to your recycle bin. When working with remote file systems deletion is permanent.



8. Rename

The rename command can be used to rename the selected file or folder.


New Folder

9. New Folder

The new folder command creates a new folder in the target directory.



10. Properties

The properties command will display the Windows Shell file properties for the selected file or directory. This command is currently disabled for remote file systems.
