v2.28 (16 Feb 2021)

QuickFiler is a utility which allows you to use many standard shortcut keys in conjunction with the RISC OS Filer.

The Filer gains the input focus when you click in a directory display, and then responds to the keyboard shortcuts shown on the Filer's menu, and the window will also scroll up or down.

A few examples of the shortcuts are:
Display Full InfoF4
Sort by SizeShift F3
Create New DirectoryCtrl D
ProtectCtrl F5
CopyCtrl C
Select AllCtrl A
Scroll Down a PagePage Down

It should now work on all versions of RISC OS from 3.00 to 5 (32bit) but requires a Risc PC-style !Boot application or later.

Note that !QuickFiler was originally written by David Thomas, who has given permission to me to distribute these changes, which were prompted by it not being 32bit compatible.
