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



1. Open

Opens the currently selected file in LogViewPlus.  This action is the same as double-clicking on the file.


Open With

2. Open With

The Open With command can be used to open a file in another application. The alternative application can either be configured in advance or added at the time the action is taken.  If the file exists on a remote machine it will be downloaded before being opened by the target application.

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.
