Im using Netbeans 7.3 at the moment, I've used it since 6.5 I believe.

In the Navigator "Projects" tab, is it possible to open up your File Browser such as Windows Explorer from there by right clicking or using a hotkey?

I have to drag files and unzip things often, and I get tired of flipping through applications

There's a plugin called QuickOpener. You can select a file in the Projects window then launch a custom command, for example:

C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zFM.exe ${currentFile}
