It would be interesting and useful to have a feature to reveal the file location in your system’s file navigator (Nautilus, Finder, Explorer, etc.).

The option could be located in Information, section File, line Path, either as a simple link on the path or as an extra icon. Additionally, a menu option “Show file” could be added in the right-click contextual menu or in the Song top menu.

Clicking it would open the file browser in the folder container the song, ideally with the file pre-highlighted (depending of the feasibility with the OS’ API).

There is a plugin for this though I think people have mentioned that it could/should be integrated in the main application interface somehow

Yes, every time we get one of these it reminds me that I strongly feel "show in file browser" should be moved to core (even more than, say, edit lyrics which already is). Lots of other rich UIs (e.g. Shotwell, PyCharm etc, Clementine) do this, choosing the most appropriate launcher per system...

@lazka thanks, that explains the slight getting déjà vu 😆

Perhaps we can just move the wrapper out from plugins to SongsMenu then...

Sorry for that Browse Folders plugin never noticed. Move it to the core sounds good too.
Thanks for the reply.. Hottest player on Linux
