On a file...
left mouse click "Opens" it
right mouse click shows the "Menu".

With middle mouse click you could "Show" ("View") the file.

Because you might want to use the alternative application to view the file,
or you might have some unknown files,
and you can view them quickly with xfv,
and see if they are text files or what kind of text files they are.

Middle mouse click could work for "Edit",
but people more often "View" a file, than "Edit" it
(or at least, I do).

Within the "fast" spirit of xfe...

    Interesting... Why not? I'll see if it is simple to implement...
    Thanks for the idea,
    RB

    This has been done in Xfe 1.34. Select a file, or mutiple files, then press the middle button and the files are viewed.
    Thanks,

    I just installed Xfe version 1.34 in Mageia Linux and checked it out.
    It works great!
    Thank you
