How can I use GMail Drive from within Total Commander?

Turns out that Total Commander can work just fine with any namespaced extension to Windows Explorer. You just need the CLSID.

  1. Install GMail Drive.
  2. Edit Total Commander's wincmd.ini (either find it yourself, or from within Total Commander go to the menu "Configuration" -> "Change Settings Files Directly"), and look for the [DirMenu] section.
  3. Scroll down until the last menu/cmd pair. Let's say it's menu21. Add after it the following lines:
    menu22=GMail Drive
    cmd22=cd ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{2B3453E4-49DF-11D3-8229-0080BE509050}
  4. Save the file, and reopen Total Commander.
  5. From now on, to access the GMail Drive open the directory menu (CTRL-D) and select "GMail Drive".

You might get the same effect by simply adding a new item to the directory menu with the command cd ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{2B3453E4-49DF-11D3-8229-0080BE509050}
