Mouse Back and Forward buttons

Post by osiris2258 »

The back and forward buttons on most modern mice are not used by xn view. They cannot be registered at all and cannot even be manually bound to anything. it would be nice if they would function as back and forward through the folder tree, as they do back and forward for websites in most browsers. Even if not made a default functionality, the ability to bind them if desired would be nice.

I also find myself wanting to navigate the folder tree with the "back" and "forward" mouse buttons. Very intuitive, and expected, especially since Xn is in so many ways similar to Explorer, where those keys work. At least as an optional binding. Thank you for considering! :)
