[TIP] Open Xfce4 Terminal drop-down console from Thunar

This article will show how to open a directory in Xfce4 Terminal's drop-down console, directly from Thunar's context menu.

You can either create a new custom action or edit the existing "Open Terminal Here" action, adding the following as the command:

xfce4-terminal --tab --drop-down --working-directory %f
