Hi,

The current method to open a new filer window is a little awkward (to me, at least).

Can you bind the windowmanager's meta key (or hardcode the "ALT" key) to open a directory in a new window when clicking on the directory?

It should behave just like the Ctrl-click for selecting, and Shift-click for viewing directory contents, so when a user Alt-clicks a directory, the contents of that directory open in a new rox window.

Keep up the great work!

    Just click with the other button (usually the middle button).

    You can also make opening in a new window the default and use the other button to reuse the same window (settable from the Options box).

    HTH,
