Description Peter Paulsen 2012-12-28 09:25:40 UTC
When I middleclick on a folder in dolphin it opens in a new tab. I can do that one by one - but i miss an option to open a bunch of folders in tabs. When I select more than one folder and middleclick only the folder I clicked on is opened in a new tab. Presumably that is desirable because it would otherwise cause a lot of unwanted and unexpected tabs for some people but how about adding a rightclick menu entry for opening all selected folders in new tabs? Or allow something like Shift-Middleclick for that?

Reproducible: Always

Thanks for the idea. Adding that to the context menu might make sense, given that we already provide that option in the context menu when right-clicking a single folder.

If this is implemented, we should then also add "Open in new windows" and "Add to places" for consistency. And of course, check if all selected items are really folders.
