When I right click on multiple selected files, I get a menu obviously. But the Open (using the default software connected with the particular file extension) item is missing. I do get the Open with option but I do not get an Open option. Is there a way to add this Open menu option?

    I think I have found the answer: I can click the arrow displayed next to the filename.

    Hi there,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    You would need to add the "Open" option to your context, so you can use it. You can do so by launching Path Finder > click on Path Finder button in the menu dock > click on Preferences > Features > Context menu and drag-and-drop OPEN option in from the left to right-column. After this, you would be able to use the option once files are selected. 

    Alternatively, you can simply use the arrow displayed next to the filename.

    Please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    "Context menu and drag-and-drop OPEN option ". There's no OPEN option.

    Hi there,

    As I can see on my end, the OPEN option is present in the left column. If it is not there, make sure to check in the right column as it might have already been added.

    If this is not the case, make sure to let me know and attach a screenshot of how it looks on your end.

    Let me know how it goes!
