Default directory for Far Manager?

Post by molngab » Sat 03 Apr, 2010 12:16

Hello!

My question: how can I set the default directory for Far Manager.
If I run Far, I would like to see always this directory (eg. C:\work) as default.


Thanks!

If you use a shortcut (*.lnk) to start Far you can change the default work directory in the shortcuts properties.

but if you use [x] Auto save setup - work directory in the shortcuts properties will be ignored: FAR will take them from autosave.

Hmm, was this changed at some point? as I at least some time ago needed to blank the work directory or one of the file panels would default to the Far install directory.

Is it possible to start far manager with passive panel as an ftp path (or netbox path to ftp dir)? how to do that?

far local_dir ftp://host/remote_dir, displaying local_dir on left and remote_dir on right panel

far.exe Active\panel\path Passive\panel\path” — it does exactly what you ask for, it's just that your active panel is obviously the left one. To change that, make the right panel active and save configuration.
