Oh yes, very useful! I've always used it in my MS folders directory.

On Windows 10, I'm restricted to only being able to read files and folders under the storage location. So if I add this option, it would only let you fix broken file paths for files that still reside in the storage location. I'm not sure how useful that is in practice. If you believe it will still be useful, let me know. ...
Sounds still useful indeed, so count me in on that, too.


Building on the thread topic concerning file paths: I'd appreciate to have a small button to be able to open the corresponding folder quickly in my file browser (on Windows normally the explorer). From there on, I could easily manipulate them however I like. I'm even thinking about putting other files connected to the song directly in its folder. This would be some kind of workaround solution for my idea of attaching/linking to corresponding files that I posted here.

Where do you want to see that button to open the folder? Next to the file in the song editor file list? How about if I changed it so that a long press on Android provides multiple options (including things I want to support like renaming, deleting, etc), whereas on Windows 10 you can access those options by clicking the "(i)" icon? For Windows 10, I may consider using a separate edit icon with a dropdown for renaming, deleting, etc. In that case, the (i) icon could be used to view the full path and then browse to the directory.

Well, this sounds perfect, actually! I had expected this kind of possibilities exactly as you described. I have no Android machine, so I don't know exactly how it looks there, but it sounds quite logical what you are describing.

"a long press on Android" sounds very helpful for me as paths on Android are often a bit complicated and not so easy to remember

You can already long press on Android to bring up the full path to the file. Did you want a way of browsing to the location on the file system? I'm not sure exactly how that would work. I could send out an intent as a url to a folder on the file system, and I suppose any file management apps would be listed as choices. I've never tried that before though so I have no idea if it will actually work.

Yes I know. It was one of my requests long ago, that the shown file path should not fade out automatically.

My understanding of the posts above was that it is about a user action that opens the folder. It is not of high priority for me.

I was able to easily add browsing for the Windows 10 version, but Android is a no-go. There is no support for having another application browse to a folder. I tried every approach suggested by random posts on the internet, and nothing works in the general case. You can get it to work for one particular file browser (like ES File Explorer), but that's about it. So I'm not going to include that functionality as it would fail for most users.
