How can I switch the left pane to a tree view (like in built-in Windows Explorer)?

Salamander does not have a "tree" view.

Thats a surprise.

All Windows Explorer replacements have a Treeview.
This is one of the core functions of modern file explorers.

Can you add this view to the next release?

I appreciate Altap Salamander and want to use it in future.
But without TreeView its almost useless for me

Thank you

Actually, its just more a thing of the way you are working. I myself don't need the tree view at all. I am using shortcuts to the folders I am using the most and for those I am not I do use the user menu.
I am used to type the first 2-3 characters of the folder or file name. Salamander moves to the first match automatically. If it's a string inside the name, I just hit the \ and start typing. This is much quicker then moving the mouse and clicking.

As for the new features - I am not a Salamander developer, just forum admin. The Salamander development is currently on hold as the Altap guys got employed by Fine corp. which is also the reason why Salamander became freeware.

This should not be a big problem to add it as plugin, but we would need to have SDK for that.
