Last One to Know - *folder

Besides the fact that *folder is sitting right at the top of the Help File Index...

Help - Windows Explorer Mode

The Internal Browser View will display Windows Explorer to display files in the following situations:

_Local folder contents

2. when a Folder or other non-document Info Item with an assigned URL attribute (containing a valid local folder path) is selected and *folder is in the File extensions to display in internal browser view: extension list on the Browser Options dialog, the folder contents will be displayed.

AND

Help - Browser Options

File extensions to display in internal browser view: Files with extensions in this list will be displayed in the Internal Browser View.

Note: If an Info Item has a URL that is a folder, adding *folder to this list will cause Ultra Recall to display the folder's contents when that item is selected (if the Info Item doesn't already contain some rich text in the Item Details Pane).
So, if you File | Import | a Folder or (right-click) drag-drop a folder from Windows Explorer you get populated URL Attributes for Items created (sync-able), and you also get child Items displayed in the Detail Pane of the parent folder.

If the parent folder contains image files, thumbnails are displayed.

There is no "linkage" between the parent display and the actual child, to view the child you need to either select it in the Data Explorer, or right-click Preview (Win Explorer popup), or launch it - remember the parent folder is displaying Windows Explorer in the Detail Pane (browser).

Attached (screen - Import Folder Thumbs-1.zip) are a couple of screens that illustrate this.

My apologies if this is old-hat.

The Rest of the Story

Help - Windows Explorer Mode

Local folder contents

Note: the Explorer view used by the Internal Browser View is configurable with the Explorer view mode: combo on the Browser Options dialog.
For the images to display in the parent folder Detail Pane this works:

Explorer view mode: Default or Thumbnail

Attached (screen - Import Folder Thumbs-3.zip) are some screens that illustrate this.

ashwken,
Thank you for highlighting the usage of *Folder. Folder is probably the most overlooked and underused feature by most UR users. Working with a myriad of folders and files directly inside UR can save huge time and frustration of switching between windows.
