If you just want to reach the home button, there is no need - just tap on the Total Commander icon in the title bar to go to the home folder.

This is a magical design, thank you.

Second question: What about "parent folder" and "reload"?They are not fixed.

The parent can be reached via Android "back" button. For reload, there is a button which can be added to the lower bar.

I noticed that on Android 5.1 and Android 10 devices I have to actually tap on Total Commander icon in its title to go to home folder, while on Android 4.3.1 device with smaller screen, and in emulators with Android 4.4.2, it's also possible to tap on "Total Commander" text near title icon to go to home folder. Is there a reason for this difference?

Cuz we're all in this together, We're here to make it right

Yes, the behaviour of the default Android ActionBar control has changed. On Android Lollipop (API 21) I have to call
actionBar.setDisplayOptions(ActionBar.DISPLAY_HOME_AS_UP,ActionBar.DISPLAY_HOME_AS_UP);
actionBar.setHomeAsUpIndicator(R.drawable.icon21_menu);
to get a reaction from clicking on the icon, and clicking on the text no longer works.
