CTRL+E

Am I the only one for whom CTRL+E (to invoke Windows Explorer) no longer works (at least the last three versions)? The command does nothing, or sometimes FPV behaves as if it "loses" the CTRL key, interpreting CTRL+E as E alone. And yes, I am sure there's nothing wrong with my keyboard.

Anybody else have this?

Ctrl+E runs a command like the one below:

Code: Select all
C:\Windows\Explorer.exe /select,"C:\Images\SomePhoto.jpg"

It's hard to imaging how it could not work? Explorer's command-line options are documented here, perhaps you can try running a similar command from a command prompt and see what happens? Perhaps Explorer.exe was renamed or moved somewhere else on your machine?

Once I was made aware that I am alone with this problem, it made it necessary for me to investigate at my end, and I found the culprit. I have an application (QTranslate) that had CTRL+E set as a default hotkey for one of it's functions.

All is well now, thank you. My apologies.
