Is there a way to detach a single menu from TLB and use it as a stand alone window? Sometimes you get to a folder that's very deep and want to do more than one action. This way you could have it floating and access it as many times as you want.

If it's already a feature then I cannot figure out how to do it, and if not, that is my suggestion.

I am using
windowsxp pro sp1
TLB 3.0

I saw how to float the entire tool bar in the FAQ, but I was wondering if there was a way to float a single menu.

This is not currently possible, but I think this would be a great feature, as well.

Incase anyone was uncertain of what I was trying to say, here is a photoshop of my suggestion.

drag the "My music" folder away from the "My documents folder"

and have a stand alone floating menu that you can directly access

Yes, this feature in my todo list.

It's called "tear-off menu's" right?

Keep in mind that every single (sub)menu is just a folder in explorer, so you could as well right-click the (sub)menu and choose 'Open' to get almost the same result...

But the TLB plug-ins don't work in a explorer window
