Find Files List

Post by rharding » 08 Jun 2016, 01:39

The Find Files and Directories returns a list of all files that meet specified criteria. Is there a means of using the results of this command to perform tasks such as copying the selected files to another directory or zipping the files?

Thank you.
Richard

Select those you want...

Copy, then paste elsewhere.

I'd think most anything available on a context-menu, open-with, send-to would work too.
May run into issues if you have too many selected (as in won't be able to pass XX number of names to a particular application, kind of thing)?

This was the problem. The message is displayed in Salamander that "some selected file or directory is not available" if a "large" number of files are selected.

Thank you
