PowerShell can't find the path '\\wsl$' either
(but can find '\\wsl$'Ubuntu-20.04'.)

Not sure what \\WSL$ is exposed as, Might be a Windows Shell only thing.
If it was a normal network thing it should be found in network device.
How come MC can find \\wsl$\Ubuntu-20.04 but don't know \\wsl$?

MC can't find \\wsl$, but it can find \\wsl$\Ubuntu-20.04\
Windows File Explorer will show all subsystems under.

Not sure what you mean.. Maybe you are trying to say something else.

But if you has a zip file and browse into that with mc and select to view or execute a file. That file must be unpack from the zip to some place.. But MC only unzip that file. not the entire archive. Because often that are not wanted you want if you only want to view one file. How ever web pages that are save are built up from many many files. so when the web browser opens the html file and want to read the rest. the rest is not there.
Sorry, I didn't describe my issue well.
Each zip has one and only one file, html. That html doesn't depend on any external resources. I have uploaded a, which writes only <html><p>Hello World</p></html>. Just double click zip and then double click the html in MC. Hope you could reproduce what I said. (Chrome is invoked but it can't find the temporarily extracted html)

Interestingly, if "internet explorer" is the default browser (Windows:settings->Default apps->Web browser), it can find the tmp file path and show the html file. The old Edge can also do it. So that means MC really extracts the file to the tmp path? (as file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Temp/_mc_/mc_8483.tmp/report_20220110.html)

I tried 7-zip, Windows, MultiCommder

x64 v11.5 build 2842 Portable

I mentioned this problem before in the thread:,4181.msg11901.html#msg11901

I like to store html files in zipped format, and try to open them in MultiCommander directly. (double click the zip and then double click the html) It does bring up Chrome but Chrome can't find the local file location. I check that file path, and it's really not there. (file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Temp/_mc_/mc_E509.tmp/_20220114.html)

Don't you have this issue?

I would like to upload a simple zip, but I think no one dare to open it. You could just create the simplest one by yourself.

I would like to see MC can change to the coresponding dark/light theme after Windows changes its color mode. Some users toggle their system color mode several times a day.

If default web browser is Chrome or Firefox, opening an html file in a zip by using the built-in FS-ZIP starts up the browser but the browser can't find the file path.
The file path is like "file:///C:/Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp/_mc_/mc_8E33.tmp/20210408.html"

Internet Explorer or Edge work well.

I can't reproduce that.
Make sure you have not reconfigured F7 to something else.
Finally I found the other program has registered the F7. You may delete the post if you want. Thanks.

I see. Thanks.

I feel Multi Commander is not easy to preview multiple files.

I found a preview app for Windows Explorer named QuickLook It's quite handy. Its preview window stays on top, and reflects the selected file promptly. It would be great to let MultiCommander trigger QuickLook.

I am looking for a way to direct MultiDataViewer to open the next/preview file. I found the two likely options: "Queue files to view " in help, and "Keyboard Navigation". But don't know what they mean.

Ctrl-PgUp/PgDn in MultiDataViewer simply are PageUP/PageDown in the same file.

in recent days, most of files are encoded in utf-8. Is that possible to set utf-8 by default?

Portable version v10.2-b2475, Multicommmander mode:

F7 (Makedir) is not working.

In Windows File Explorer, we can type quickly a file name and jump to select the matched file name.
Is this possible in Commander Style?
