First of all sorry if this is in the wrong place.


So as the title says if I have a folder that is named music for instance could I have a specific music video like attached as if to say to the folder so that that when I double click on the folder it opens up said attached video? sorry if this is random just came to my head when I was thinking about something XD.

Not really. You'd have to somehow disguise a video and make it look like a folder.

Well, I don't know if this would work, but AHK script that opens video file if it's present in the folder. However I don't know what would trigger it. AFAIK there's no action/event when you browse to a folder using file explorer (using console you could use "cd *" as trigger perhaps).

It is possible using script in DO filemanager, but i'm pretty sure you don't want to buy expensive program just for that. And programming skills are required too.
