if you use Alt-F6 for unpacking archive,
it would by usefull to pre-fill the path into the field according to filename without extension.

One can open the standard ITEMs from "Start | Settings | Control Panel's" from the command line too.

The syntax is like
RUNDLL32 SHELL32.DLL,Control_RunDLL filename.CPL,@n,t

Use this syntax as command line in the SSs user menu.

see http://forum.altap.cz/viewtopic.php?p=3303#3303 for more.

Edit:
"ITEMs from " added

IMHO this is not productivity!
A comfortable way is the menu "Commands - Open Folder", or to add the "Open Folder "Icon to the Toolbar 8)
Kind regards, KNUT

IMHO that's not the same 8)

YOU open folders.
e.g.
- Commands
--- Open Folders
------the Control Panel
--------- scroll & search
-------------and THEN an item.

I open items from the 'Control Panel' direct, i.e. System-Dialog, Mouse-Settings, Software-Dialog.
AND even the desired tab of this dialog.

Peoples working method differ, but SALAMANDER please them all.



Edit:
i am edited my previous post to make this more clear, sorry for the misconception

can not be open in "Hot Paths" but in "User Menu"

Not really productivity but...

The three things I always do after performing a clean install of SS are:

1. Turn off auto-save
2. Change the colour scheme to Norton Commander
3. Save settings

I used NC for so many years that I'm just used to SS looking the same ;-)

Oh, and another tip. If, like me, you are managing an Active Directory domain, you will sometimes want to escalate your privileges to "domain admin" so you can do admin stuff... (you're not running your regular desktop user as a "domain admin" account, are you...?)

I use the runas command: "runas /user:<domain>\<adminaccount> cmd.exe" - this opens up an admin console. From here you can start SS (or you could even start it directly).

Once running, this copy of SS will be running under a different profile. Fire up the configuration and change the panel backgrounds to BRIGHT RED! Once you've done this, save your settings and you'll be able to tell at a glance which of your SS windows has "the power" ;-)

Not so much a productivity tip as a "don't destroy your domain" tip...
