Good day!

I want to start MC in the current folder while browsing the files using the standard Windows Explorer. Is that possible?

Yes via registry key. Make a Google search and you will find a lot of guides to solve your question.

This was a hint to include this option by default as the main file browser in Windows is still Windows Explorer I often need to switch from it to MC.

After some research, I understood that this is not an easy task. The best what I can do is to use "FileMenu Tools" that can start the MC in the current folder but only if MC has not been started yet. If it is started it just opens where it was.

This option is common for FastStone Image Viewer or Far Manager.
