Asked questions on this answer:
Hi, Love Q-Dir, still hoping to see you implement a way of associating files on a portable installation with programs in the portable locations. This way if running Q-Dir from a portable install, files are opened using programs from that same location vs on the host machine. Below please find a link to a small utility that currently provides this functionality. http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1317 Thanks for your hard work and keep it up. Bob
Love Q-Dir. Could you add: Open a command prompt window here prompt? Ths way I could open a DOS window after navigating thru Q-Dir.
