[SOLVED] ESC/F10 does not close Change Drive dialog in "elevated" folders

Post by Yegor »

  1. Go to C:\Program Files
  2. Press Enter on WindowsApps folder
    The "Access denied" dialog appears asking for administrator permissions.
  3. Press Enter (OK)
    The WindowsApps folder opens showing contents
  4. Press AltF1
    The Change drive dialog appears.
  5. Press Esc
Expected: The Change drive dialog disappears.
Actual: Nothing happens

Maybe some "access denied" error happens behind the scenes that is not elevated?

Far 3.0.6025.0 x86 / Windows 11 [Version 10.0.22000.978]

[Minor] ESC/F10 does not close Change Drive dialog in "elevated" folders

I disagree that the issue is minor. If I have an unsaved file open in the editor, I'll lose my work because there's no way to exit such FAR gracefully and I have to terminate it.

You still have a workaround, just select a drive. Even the same C: drive will work and Far will ask for elevation.
