Show in Folder

Allows to promptly open folders containing datasets (shapefiles, tables, geodatabases, raster files etc.) selected in the Table of contents or Catalog window in ArcMap.

 Available in XTools Pro for ArcMap

This new tiny feature allows to promptly open folders containing datasets (shapefiles, tables, geodatabases, raster files etc.) selected in the Table of contents or Catalog in ArcMap.

For the selected dataset the tool opens a new File Explorer window and goes to the folder with the data source of the element selected in the Table of contents or in the Catalog dockable window in ArcMap.

For the file based datasets (shp, sdc, dwg, tab, dbf, csv, xls, xlsx, bmp, jpeg, tiff, gif, ttf etc.) and geodatabases (mdb, gbd, sqlite) the containing folder will be opened.
For the elements residing on the remote server the tool will open a local folder with the database connection file.
