V 1.2019.07.11

Added an option to the context menu to let you toggle the previous "dot-dot" folder.
When hidden, only the current folders and files are displayed.

Note: You will need to toggle this to show the "dot-dot" folder in order to navigate to higher level folders.

Replace the LeftMouseUpAction in your HoneyComb icon launcher skin with a !ActivateConfig bang. Something like this:
LeftMouseUpAction=[!ActivateConfig "FolderView\Folder1" "FolderStationary.ini"]
Save that file and refresh the Honetcomb skin to open the 'stationary' version of 'folder1'.

Hello Eclectic-Tech,
Using Your FolderView to navigate and select a SlideShow folder.
Everything works wonderfully ...
Except...
Only one thing escapes my low level of skinner.
I validate the path without problem with a right click button.
But I want to keep an undo option [1 level] on the left click,
I have to operate 2 clicks to take it into account in the "variables.inc" of Folder1.
I can post the rmskin of course for checking, as I wouldn't want to update my post in the "Other Uncategorized Skins" section where it is currently without this option.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Not sure what you mean by 'an undo option'.
You can set any path by navigating the folders, or by middle-click the Titlebar and typing in a path.
You can reset to the top level by middle-click the Titlebar and entering a blank (empty) path.

I would need to see your modified code to be able to suggest any changes.

Is there a way to increase the size of the folder and the amount of files it shows?

Are asking to increase the size of the icons or the entire skin?
The icons are already using the large variant.
To enlarge the skin can be done by editing the "Scale" variable in "variables.inc" of any of the included config folders.

The number of items shown could be increased beyond 8-at-a-time (as it is now), but would require a lot of modifying of the code: FileView setting changes, plus new measures and meters.

That is not something I plan on doing :uhuh:
The skin can show an unlimited number of folders and files from any location, it simply limits to viewing 8 at any one time.
