That's got it!  Thanks.

So that would cover three of the more popular FM's in use (I think)
under Xfce.

This should then open up the option to expand the functionality of a
recently used files list by allowing the user to specify 'rox', 'xffm'
or 'gnome-open' for these three FMs as the command to precede passing
the FileName as an argument.

Presumably other FM's that have support for MIME/Application
associations would have similar functionality, providing further options
for Xfce users.

Hope that helps Radoslaw.

Best regards,
