Separator between right-click menu Delete/Rename items

Post by Brett » 14 Jun 2018, 10:12

I often need to rename files, and do so by right-clicking the file then selecting Rename. Unfortunately Delete is just above Rename and, from time to time, I will accidently delete the file I wanted to rename. Luckily I can recover the file through the Recycle Bin so it is more of an irritation than anything else.

It would be great if a separator could be introduced between the Delete and Rename menu items to make it a bit more difficult to click Delete by mistake.

Cheers,
Brett

Hi,
The context menu you get is composed by windows, not Salamander (you get the same in Windows Explorer)

Why don't you use F2?

Other options are:
- click on the already selected file name
- Main menu (also using acceleration keys)
- the symbol on any suitable toolbar (e.g. the middle toolbar)

Just shows you how long ago I actually used Explorer. Thanks for the info.

Cheers,
