Directory

work exactly as Favorite feature - Tab is direct link to the directory.
and just one option: Lock Tab (MP will keep tab after restart)

i would be happy if you consider this suggestion useful and it will be implemented someday
thank you!

Browser window only. actually Folder Tabs are additional Browser windows which are always in Tab Bar. would be very useful to fast switch between several Browser windows


but i see it is going to be complicated, so here is could be simpler solution - just option to add some favorite items as buttons on toolbar.

Hahaha :D This topic reminds me of a certain 'idea' topic I had posted once before:
Subject: XnMP: Sub-tabs in 'Browser' for a File Manager environment

The thing is, upon thought, is that this would lead XnView MP into the realm of a 'file manager' app if this feature was implemented. Furthermore it could mean users requesting more 'file manager' specific features....But on the other hand, XnView MP already does basic file manager features already, just that it's centred all on image viewing/handling that's all.

The multiple browser tabs idea has been long requested in the forum. Not to mention the Holy Grail of dual side-by-side browsers in ONE tab.
