An ”Open Folder” option for files in the Project/Files Panel

For some reason I thought, I could right click files in the panel on the left (Projects/Files/) and click something like “Open in Folder”, which would in Windows open its location in the Windows Explorer. Either I some how disabled it, or it never existed.

If it doesn’t exist, I’ve had to make it for my own application before, and after some digging I found the code I used. I’ve no idea if it works on Mac/Linux or where I got it from but in any case heres what I used:

[java] private class PopUpDemo1 extends javax.swing.JPopupMenu {

javax.swing.JMenuItem openFolderItem;

public PopUpDemo1(){

openFolderItem = new javax.swing.JMenuItem(“Open in folder location”);


openFolderItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event){

Desktop desktop = null;

File file = new File((textField.getText()));

if (Desktop.isDesktopSupported()) {

desktop = Desktop.getDesktop();


try {;


catch (IOException e){ }

catch(IllegalArgumentException e1){






Or if it does exist, how do I get it back? :stuck_out_tongue:

It never existed but I can see if I can add the code some time, I’ll change the assets node configuration (internally) some time soon anyway.

k cool :slight_smile: thanks
