How to open build-folder in Windows Explorer directly from IDE?
« on: February 17, 2023, 09:48:04 am »
After building software, is there a way to directly jump to the containing folder of it right out of the IDE?
In know this feature from IntelliJ where you have a right-click-menu and can open the folder you see in the IDE in an explorer window.

Right-click on the project name and select "Open containing folder". This is not the output directory, but it should be at hand.

Use the "Open Project Folder in File Browser" above Properties.

What version of codeblocks are you using?
Try a nightly, there should be the menu entry
