Favorites

Add opened files to favorites - if checked, any opened file is automatically added to Favorites list.

Internet Explorer™ Favorites style - if checked, Favorites list behaves like Favorites panel in the Microsoft Internet Explorer™. Files in the Explorer panel look like links and may be opened by a single click. By default the option is switched off and the files from the Favorites list are opened with a double mouse click.
