Opening drawers within the same window - Possible?

Good day,

I'm trying to determine if there I any way to have drawers open in the already open window, not creating scores of new windows with each new branch of the folder structure.

I know that OS4 is an attempt at preserving the functionality of the old Workbench environments, but it seems that this feature might be something that would benefit the new versions so you don't end up with so many windows open on the screen, having to close them all after accessing the drawer your looking for.

Don't mean to offend any developers if the preference of most users is to have all windows represented, but if there is a way that I can get them to open in one window then I would love for someone to enlighten me as to how I can do so.


Stay golden...

AFAIK there is no way to do such a horrible thing in workbench. The closest thing you can do is press the right amiga key when opening a new drawer, this will automatically close the parent drawer.

You can also press the right amiga key when closing a drawer to automatically close *ALL* drawers.

Well, I found a way to do it, but I'm not sure if I like it all the time now.

The classimple theme does it automatically, you can still right click > open to leave the previous drawer window open.

The other option propose, WorkbenchExplorer, is a great alternative to the standard file manager, and has many great features.. thank you mritter0!

Thank you for throwing those shortcuts up there, very helpful indeed, despite the sarcasm

No need to change themes, it is a Workbench Prefs setting.

Just enable the "Close Parent automatically" chekbox.

The Filer commodity is also a useful addition that gives Workbench DOpus-style listers.
