Context Menu: Open skins directory

Post by WorMzy »

I'm wondering if there's a possibility of having a context menu item that opens the skins directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins) so that you can quickly open the folder to install new skins.

If you could get away with double-clicking on Configs to open the directory, it'd be a bonus.

This is an excellent Idea.

A List of context menu changes and suggestions have been forwarded to the Dev Folks.
I will double check, but I believe that this was part of the suggestions.

If not I will add it 8-)

Thanks for the suggestions

I think that can be done by defining a new file extension associated with Rainmeter, renaming .zipped skins to have that file extension, and that way "running" the skin will invoke Rainmeter to handle it.

I've made a button to open the folder of the config set I'm working on in the mean time.
