    Windows 8 Folder Open With


    I decided to switch to a different file explorer. Like how Windows uses Windows Explorer. I will be using MultiCommander. I would like any folders that are opened, to be opened in MultiCommander. How do I do this? Folders could be anything on the desktop, start menu etc. You could also open the folder in other programs such as WinRAR or 7z.


    Thanks in advance!
