When you select Explore Here... from the context menu FileLocator Pro executes the shell command
explore on the folder, ie it doesn't specifically launch Explorer.
To have a different application open you need to change the registry. Run regedit and find the key:
Then change the default value (labelled
(Default) in regedit) to be the command you want to execute, e.g. something like:
"C:\PathToTotalCommander\TotalCommander.exe" /O "%1"
If there are any other values under the
command key you may need to remove or rename them. For example, on my Win 7 x64 system there is a string value
DelegateExecute which needed renaming to
OLDDelegateExecute for the redirection to work.
Double-click to open a folder
If you double-click on an item FileLocator Pro executes the 'default verb' for the item. For many shell items this often the open verb. Therefore if you want the same behaviour for double-click as you do for Explore here... you'll need to make the same changes to the open key as you did to the explore key:
