I don't know if this is the right section for my question, but I will try... I am using XYplorer for all my computer browsing needs. I have used an everything search through keypirnha for my "Recent folders" and now I have them in the catalog when using the keyword "recents".

The problem is that when I try to open this folder it uses Windows Explorer rather than XYplorer which is set as my default file browser. This only happens with the "Recent Folders/items", all other folders open with XYplorer.

Thank you and again, my respect for this excellent software

I'm not aware of how XYplorer declares itself as the default Explorer so this needs a bit of digging. Meanwhile would you mind sharing your OS and KP version numbers?

thanks for the answer. I am using Windows 10 and Keypirinha 2.13.
The real folder is C:\Users%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent

Hi again, is there a way to use XYplorer (I have set it as default Explorer) when using "Show in File Explorer" command from keypirinha?

A file_explorer setting has been added and will be available in next release. Please follow #62.

EDIT: to fully address the issue here, no auto-detection is performed because after some digging, it appears third-party explorers do not have official way provided by Windows to declare themselves as default file explorer and instead have to rely on hacks in the registry. It's not much of a big deal technically-wise, but may be error prone in some cases while a simple file_explorer setting allows full control if necessary, including using a trampoline script if needed since it's just a command line to be invoked.
