This is possible since UltraEdit for Windows v25.00 using an UltraEdit script which has for example the file name Open favorite file.js
and which is added with the Scripts
dialog window opened with a click on ribbon tab Advanced
on the item All scripts
. The script could should be something like:
Code: Select all
var sFavoriteFile = "C:\\Program Files\\IDM Computer Solutions\\UltraEdit\\changes.txt";
for (var nDocIndex = 0; nDocIndex < UltraEdit.document.length; nDocIndex++)
// This string comparison is done case-sensitive!
if (UltraEdit.document[nDocIndex].path == sFavoriteFile)
if (nDocIndex == UltraEdit.document.length) UltraEdit.open(sFavoriteFile);
The command is listed in the list of Commands
on tab Customize Quick Access Toolbar
with the name of the script file.
But I would not use this method. I think, it is better to click on first ribbon tab File
on third item Favorite files
and add to this list the favorite file which is used frequently. The command Favorite files
can be also added to the quick access toolbar. It is also possible to assign a hotkey or chord to this command at Advanced - Settings or Configuration - Key mapping
for quick opening the Favorite Files
dialog window by key. The selection of a file or folder in the list is also possible by key by typing the beginning of the file/folder name as well as opening the selected favorite file or favorite folder with ENTER
The File View
window contains also the tab Lists
with the list Favorites
for quick opening a favorite file/folder. A file can be easily added to the Favorites
list by dragging its file tab to the Favorites
list item and dropping it here.
I recommend to read also the topic How to set up multiple favorite files lists and group favorite files in a list?
on which I explained the usage of Favorites
list even more detailed.
