When I click the "+" icon next to folder tabs - I get the "Browse to Folder" dialog box. Currently this dialog box only allows me to manually navigate to the destination folder. But sometimes I have the complete folder path already in the clipboard - so, I would like to be able to just paste this path in the dialog box and quickly open a new tab with this folder path. Would it be possible to add a folder path field to this dialog box?

Try right clicking inside this dialog and you should get an open in new tab option.. If your settings are set for it.
Thanks for your response; however, this is not the desired effect.
Let's say I have a folder path written in some document and the folder path is not clickable for whatever reason. Now I want to open that folder in a new tab. If I paste the path into the address bar of Explorer it replaces the current folder - I don't want that, I want a new tab. Currently my only option is to clone any displayed tab, then paste the path from the clipboard into the folder path. A little tedious. I just want an option to click the new folder icon, and then be able to paste in the folder without having to navigate to it slowly.
Or, if there could be an option that when I paste a folder path in the Explorer window a new tab opens without overwriting the current displayed tab.
It also opens in a new WINDOW - not what we want…. Clicking on '+' should open a new tab with an empty address-bar into which you paste a folder-path (ideally, it would pick it from the clipboard and after some check it will paste-and-go - similar to web-browsers).
quoted: It also opens in a new WINDOW - not what we want….
Not sure what settings you have, but mine just opens The new tab right next to the current one. Same window..
Hi, if I understood what you want : when you left click to the folder tabs, you have an "Open the folder in the clipboard" feature.
That's right ?
What you can do for now :
- Open a new tab
- Press F4 on your keyboard
- CTRL + A, CTRL + V (if you have the folder path in your clipboard), ENTER
'Open a new tab'
this automatically opens the folder-dialog, after which pressing 'F4' doesn't work anylonger (I understand you want to move the cursor to the address-bar), as the dialog-box keeps the focus.
I can't find any setting to prevent the dialog-box popping up - maybe in the registry, but it should be in regular options.
Yes, that would be useful. Not sure why the dialog-box opens in the first place - and in my case it is even the old version (just a folder-tree) - not the modern one (tree on the left, folders on the right). It would be nice to somehow change to the new one (maybe it's a registry setting?), as the current method is a pain. What we 'need' is a new tab, with an empty address-bar - similar to a web-browser.
For now: select a locked tab and then paste your path into the address-bar - it will open in a new tab.
(and to copy paths, I use this tiny gem: www .clipname.software.informer .com)
