Custom Commands Window

Custom commands are actions which you can invoke on any folder by pressing a hotkey. Use the Custom Commands Window to create and manage custom commands. You can access this window under the Tools menu in the Main QuickJump Window.

A custom command can include any executable or script, command line parameters as well as placeholder fields for the user input and folder path.


Be sure to enclose both executable path and %QJ_FLD_PATH% in double quotes.

Command Fields

  • "%QJ_FLD_PATH%"- placeholder for the selected folder path.
  • "%QJ_INPUT%" - placeholder for the user input.
