I set up a TOOLBAR CONFIG on F5 that runs super and is simple.
Its "Run by Extension".
It just runs the file or whatever based on its association.
For example, outside of UE and opened a DOSBOX and typed my filename, like, "index.html", IE opens it.
Here's my setting for doing this in UE Config:
Menu Item Name: Run By EXT
Command Line: cmd /c "%f"
Working Dir: %P
Program Type: DOS
Save Active file: checked
(not required, but a good thing since you ARE going to run that file)
[x] Output To ListBox
[x] Capture Output
Now this works with any file you have as it is associated as the WINDOWS DEFAULT. If you like to "compile" as a DEFAULT, then change the WINDOWS assoc for it.
Keep in mind that when you are in explorer and double click, the NEW default is used, eg, it will compile and not open it in UE )or however it was set.
For me, UE is pretty much my DESKTOP replacement
and I've set it so that I do everything in there.
In UE FileTree, I may see a file "hompage.jpg".
I'll double click(opening it in UE).
It shows BINARY (ugh!) , but so what! I want to see it!
So I hit my F5(shortcut to "Run By Extenson").
BOOM! Up comes the MS Image Viewer showing the file.
So, I do not like that. I re-asoc'd it to PAINT.
Hit F5 again, and now its in PAINT.
Good luck with this tip.
