Thank you. I appreciate the response but I am well aware of all of the work-arounds. I really need direct support because identifying long pathnames is not the problem I face. It is opening documents and other materials that are the result of those long pathnames. I need the paths as they are - they are all part of a library and reference system that I set up some time ago.

Again, I thank you for responding.

To others out there -

I would like the direct support in Ztree. With all of the other improvements made to Ztree by user requests I just don't see why people would not want to add this. It just improves upon an already great program. Some would say - and I don't understand this - that Ztree is fine as it is and doesn't need it - but yet they these same people don't mind if they make requests of Kim.

If the function is there - doesn't mean you have to use it - it is just another option like anything else having to do with Ztree. So voting NO with no valid explanation is not any kind of answer - novel not withstanding. And I wasn't asking for a vote by the way - just some assistance - I did post it though on Wish when at the time I did not have any responses.

Personally, I think something as fundamental as a File manager that involves paths and files should support the Windows enabling of long paths and filenames - since it is under the purview of the program's basic function.

Kim what do you think?
