Thank you for pointing this hi5. But I find it much more effort to implement this approach for a "non critical" feature in my app.

If I could get the list of folders in tabs using:
- a SendMessage with something like cm_SaveTabs2 command (the location of the .tab file could be a fix like the TC app folder or the TC working directory)
- or by calling the SAVETABS command from the command line.

If I can't at this time, I will wait and work on other tasks I have on the QAP roadmap.

A TC user proposed to use the method described here to collect the active folder in TC left and right pane.
https://forum.quickaccesspopup.com/showthread.php?tid=512&pid=1284

I used this method to add active folders in left and right panes of Total Commander when building the Quick Access Popup "Current windows" and "Reopen a Folder" dynamic menus, and support active folder in TC for the "Reopen Current Folder in Dialog Box". At this time, re-opening the active TC folder in a file dialog box is currently not supported for some Windows Special Folders like "My Computer" or "Recycle Bin". But this can be improved in a future release.

The path of folders in inactive tabs are still missing but it is a good progress.
