Considering that the plugin has not been updated for more than 10 years and will not be updated 10 years more, perhaps its functionality must be out of the box? And with dark mode

Unfortunately I didn't yet document the new flags for dark mode. I have now updated the plugin writer's guide for Lister plugins:
just add the ability Ctrl+Q with explorer out of the box PLEASE
we already have explorer in lister so what the problem?

To my understanding, you want to auto-switch target folder when focus in on any folder from source. I do not know if such option is available at TC level.
With quickview, you have a lister window on top of the target tab. The best would be to have a dummy lister with a TC Tab inside, It is not really doable without the help of @ghisler(Author).
A transparent quickview window and mouse click-through could also works but do know if appLoader author can implement it ?
What can be done with QuickView in separate window ( [Shift]+[Ctrl]]+Q ) using appLoaderwith this configuration (save as AppLoader.ini):
Code: Select all

If QuickView windows is closed, quick view process is stopped and you need use ^Q again to switch folders...

Maybe KozakMak refers to the Explorer Preview (8) in Lister - which is not the same as having "explorer in lister".What do you mean with "explorer in lister" ??
