- Hello. Sorry if I asked this before, a time ago, but I don't remember if it has a solution. Here it goes again... I got a program called Listary which allow me to open any folder in a short way, with the file explorer of my preference. Of course it is Q-Dir! So I set Listary to open my folders by a command line it ask for, with the specific Q-Dir path AND a little parameter just to open the desired folder, as you can see at the image attached. I made sure in Extras (settings) Menu that Q-Dir is set to always open folders in a new tab, but the parameter "%1" never worked for me, it always start a new instance of Q-Dir. Looking for alternative characters I found this one: /e>%1> (no quotes), which worked fine in Q-Dir older versions. Now, non of them seem to work in Q-Dir (installed) 8.18 x64 / (May 10 2020 07:43:42). Only this other parameter leads me to my folder but just to select it (not to open): /e,/select,"%1" Can you help me to find the right parameter so that Listary gets to open a new tab in a present Q-Dir instance?
