F4 is the shortcut key used in Total Commander for opening selected files in a pre-defined program.
In TC only one program can be assigned to F4 making it impossible to define or select other editors for different file types.
Several tools have been made to solve this problem, F4MiniMenu is one of these tools, but written in AutoHotkey
(F4MiniMenu was based on some of the functionality of F4Menu but now has some unique features such as drag & drop, cmdline and document templates (via a second script))
It can use four methods of opening selected file(s)
- Normal (simply uses Run editor.exe selectedfile.ext)
- Drag & Drop support

As Alguimist posted about it here https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic ... 64&t=55303 I thought it might be useful to open a thread here as well.
