shellext: Ability to copy files in SAME folder/directory using Windows Explorer
Created originally on Bitbucket by freefaller (Tom Hartland)
TL;DR - implement right-click "copy" in the same directory in Windows Explorer.
If I right-click and drag a file in Windows Explorer, I'm given the options to "Hg Move versioned item(s) here" and "Hg Copy versioned item(s) here".
These only work if dragging the file(s) into a different folder/directory... and that makes complete sense for the "Move" option.
However, I regularly need to copy files in the same folder/directory, and it is frustrating that it doesn't allow it. The workaround is to "copy" to a different folder, rename the file and then "move" back to the original one.
(And now I think about it, I guess the main issue with copying to the same directory is the appropriate renaming of the new files.)
