Is there a way to open the folder in Windows Explorer that contains the file that is open in the current tab?

No, there is only functionality to open file in internal file explorer - button synchronize with files.
You can assign external command to Highlighter or used tool balen and add tool:
It will do what you need - open Windows explorer in folder given by current file dir

pspad:... or used tool balen and add tool:
Sorry, my English is not so good, what means: "used tool balen and add tool"?
The option with the highlighter only works for file types of this highlighter, but the desired function should be available for all file types. (text files, log files, ...)
Maybe you can see this as a suggestion for later, for me it is not important. I can write a VBScript and assign a keyboard shortcut. This works for all file types, but there is no (context) menu item.
As I said, this is not important, you don't need to do anything else. I just thought, if the function already exists, it would be good to know how to use it.
Thanks for the answer!

If you define it into left favorite panel as tool, it will be available for all highlightes

Thanks for the tip, it works.
With the following settings the Windows Explorer is opened in the directory of the file of the current tab and the file is highlighted in the Explorer.
