What is not working ?

Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH="${focusfilepath}" SIDE=TARGETOpen a new tab that will show the path of the file in focus.

What do you want to happen?

Ahh wait..
You want to open a new tab with path X, but KEEP the current panel as active.. ?

Then you had it almost correct
Code: [Select]
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=INACTIVE(you forgot the PANEL= part)
and you need INACTIVE because the first command NewBrowser or Goto Will steal focus..

Thank you very much. Now it works. Yes i forget "Panel=". And "INACTIVE" is not in the documentation.

Folder-Path without new tab on the other side:
Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.Goto TARGET="${focusfilepath}"
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=INACTIVE
Folder-Path in a new Tab on the other side:
Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH="${focusfilepath}" SIDE=TARGET
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=INACTIVE
