    Default Extending context menu and running script for set of files/folders

    Hi,

    I need some extended functionality. I need select some files let's say 100 orphan files/folders and make a custom command(bash script or nodejs javascript module) which gets and processes them all.
    I would like to extend context menu for linux(ubuntu) version.
    For windows in theory I can extend explorer context menu. Not sure how this extension would work for set of files.
    Is there easy way to do it? If yes could you drop me a link or where to look.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    I think you are looking for our Open With behavior, found in the Tools menu -> Options dialog, Open With tab. Here you can define custom commands which can act on a selection. You can then use our Display Filters to limit the view, and selection tools to then select the viewable files or folders. This right click Open With is only available within BC4 itself.
