This is an implementation of my idea from now closed patch [ 1764783 ] Change directory using a dialog.
CMD.EXE can accept files and folders via drag-and-drop to insert a properly quoted path.
Console does one better and accepts multiple files and folders to insert as space-delimited, properly quoted path's.
This patch implements one better. Now Console can accept: - "special" items, for example, My Documents icon, it will convert it to properly quoted path before pasting.
- text snippets from other applications like Outlook, VS or Firefox; they're not quoted in any way.
Also, if exactly one shortcut is dropped on Console with Ctrl key pressed, it will try to resolve the shortcut and paste the resulting path.
Marko, this is my reply to your last comment to the 1764783 patch.
