#2098 closed feature-request (Fixed)

Modify 'Open Folder' option to highlight the torrent folder/file

Reported by: Cas Owned by: Cas
Priority: trivial Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: GTK UI Version: 1.3.5
Keywords: Cc:


As discussed in two threads on the forum 1 2 with a lot of torrents in the download folder finding the actual file/folder can be tricky.

The open_file method in common could be modified but I think a new method called select_file would make more sense. Currently this would only work on Windows (explorer /select,) and OSX (open -R) as there is no such option for xdg-open. Although a call to Nautilus could be used on Linux as that supports highlighting a file (but not a folder).

Would love this. Yes, 'open folder' should highlight the file in Explorer. See

If there are multiple files, highlighting the first would be reasonable.
