    I am not talking about a PERMANENT change but a TEMPORARY change during the time the USB flash drive is inserted in port.

    This TEMPORARY change could either be automatically (when OSFMount is started and later stopped) or MANUALLY by a menu. For the latter have a look at the context menu handling of the famous, free 7zip archiver:

    http://www.7-zip.org/

    It allows such a manual enabling/disabling of context menus entries.

    Thank you

    Drag and drop is on the to do list. But as with most free software, there are budget restrictions.

    When running from a USB drive, it doesn't make sense to make permanent changes to the system (like changing file associations). If you are doing a full install however this makes sense.

    If you wanted to fund the development of these changes we could certainly make them a higher priority.

  • OSFMount: Need drag&drop mount and WinExplorer context menus

    I appreciate OSFMount but miss two features:

    1.) I would like to mount a certain *.iso file by just dragging it onto the OSFMount window.
    This action shozuld AUTOMATICALLY mount the *.iso file to the next available drive letter

    2.) When starting OSFMount (from USB flash drive) it should AUTOMATICALLY add a new Windows Explorer context menu entry to all *.iso files:

    mount as drive

    When exiting OSFMount (later) this context menu entry should be removed automatically.
    Similarly a "dismount" context menu entry should be added to all virtual drives.

    Can these features be added in the next release?

    Thank you
    Peter
