Thank you Ben.

True, these are five scripts which are five entries in the menu, but a F9 menu is always a single *.ZAM file within ZTree directory, although you can have multiple menus, meaning different *.ZAM file for each to allow anyone to switch from one menu to another on-the-fly, according to preference or context. See documentation. I don't use that later feature: I have a single menu in a single ZTW.ZAM with all my scripts.

As for full path specification in the scripts, yes, it is required except if #ZTTools variable is configured in Alt-F10-1G. See documentation. My setting is %#ZTHome%\ZTTools, meaning there is a subdirectory under ZTree directory where I put all my external utilities. This allows the scripts to be fully portable, whatever the drive letter on which ZTree is located.
