To Use Explorer Plug-in

The Explorer plug-in is installed by default with EmEditor Professional. This plug-in displays the folder tree and allows you to open a file from the folder tree. To use the Explorer plug-in:

1.Click Explorer on the Plug-ins bar. Or on the Tools menu, point to Plug-ins, and then click Explorer. The Explorer custom bar will appear.

2.Find and click a file to open from the folder tree, and the file will be opened with EmEditor.


Press the F6 key or ESC key to set the keyboard focus back to the editor.

To enter the path directly, use the Path drop-down list.

To display only certain file types, set the filter in the Filter drop-down list. Wild cards (*, ?) can be used. To separate multiple file specifications, use a semicolon (;).

Right-click on the list to view hidden files, refresh, or clear the Path and Filter history.

Single-click opens an item by default. You can change this behavior from the plug-in properties.
