Re: Another request: Hoisting in Explorer
Author: Steven C. Den Beste Posted: 8/16/1999; 1:34:36 AM Topic: Feature Request for Windows Explorer Msg #: 9551 (In response to 9520) Prev/Next: 9550 / 9552
There is already available a feature called "Explore from here" which is one of the "power toys" for Win 95, which is in effect what you call "hoist".
With it installed, if you right-click on a directory or other object (like the START button) which has a subsidiary structure, this is one of the choices in the top part of the menu along with "explore" and "open" and "find" and so on. A new window appears with explorer running in double-pane mode.
Though it is tagged as being for Win 95, in fact it works under NT 4 and can be installed there safely.
You can get it from here:
by downloading the power toys and then extracting just that one tool from the whole and installing it manually.
