Folder view vs doplhin context menu
Folder view should ideally behave as Dolphin when using the right context menu.
It misses the "Open in terminal" menu item.
This is a a bug that is part of a group listing inconsistencies between Folder view context menus and Dolphin context menus. The otehr bugs are:

containmentactions/contextmenu: Add "Open Terminal" action
This adds the ability to open the terminal from the main Plasma Shell
context menu. It was originally written as a Red Hat/Fedora patch
for KDE Workspace 4 to open Konsole from the desktop context menu
when Fedora switched to KDE 4, and ported forward to KDE Plasma 5
when Fedora Linux switched to Plasma 5 in Fedora 22.
It has been maintained as a downstream patch since then.
This version of the patch genericizes the patch by not implying that
Konsole is the user's terminal (it actually opens the user's chosen
terminal anyway), can be restricted via the desktop kiosk mode
settings, and is disabled by default.
The major maintainers of this patch are being honored as co-authors
for this patch. They have all helped keep this functionality working
across two KDE major versions for a decade.

Thanks! can't wait for 5.26!
Note that this new menu item is off by default and must be manually turned on. Fedora will probably turn it on by default in their packaging though, given that it's their patch. :)
Well, I actually use open in Konsole menu: https://invent.kde.org/-/snippets/1897 (and it works on the desktop too)
However, now I see this might be fixing something else than I reported. When you look at the attachment, I was comparing the context menu in Folder view when clicking on a directory.
This fix is for clicking on the desktop, no?
this is for the desktop context menu, yes. Dolphin's context menu already had this feature.

Desktop (free space) menu
There are two Desktop menus. One is a context menu when I click on the desktop, which is on this screenshot. It can be configured as the screenshot shows. I thought this fix is for this menu, which si not what this but was meant to be about.

Desktop context menu for a directory
Adn then there is a context menu on the Desktop shown when one right-clicks a directory (this screenshot). I have no idea where I can edit that (or does ti shra configuration with Dolphin). This bug and all the linked bugs were filed about this menu.
So which one is the fix about?
Oh I guess that's not done, then. Darn.
Can you file a new bug report for it, since we already used this one for something else?
