Similar to View (above), the 'O' key might be used to Open ANY 'path + filename' -- if there was a 'new' Open dialog, in Directory View -- used to Open that file within its Windows (filename-extension-) Associated, external viewer or editor program.

Currently however, pressing the 'O' key, in Directory view, instead opens the Windows File Explorer at the location of the highlight bar.

Instead, this new 'Open file' command would work, if either Ctrl-Open, or Alt-Open, were used to initiate it.
