Tap + Hold gesture on files and folders (it's return)

Please bring back the Tap+Hold gesture that is missed from classic SE 1.xx

In SE 2.0, tap+hold on a file/folder would simply open up the overflow menu to present the exact same editing options.

This is very much the same as pressing the physical MENU button on a Samsung device running SE 2.0 which would open the same overflow menu (3 dots)

    It WOULD be e to see the current "bottom/top actions bar" just hover over the file. And dismissed if swiped from left to right.

    A few other users have asked for the return of this feature too.

    Personally, I think t should be optional via enabled/disabled in the settings. If enabled it would mean that the editing tools would not show in the Toolbar but would get displayed as plain text in a centered pop up menu

    So it would ideally work like this:

    1. Tap & hold on a single file/folder for 2 seconds

    2. The overflow menu (of 3 dots) would open ready for use.

    3. If user does nothing with the opened overflow menu, then user could press back button to return OR simply tap outside of the overflow menu to close it which would cancel the selection.

    It would be very handy to have this feature back from old SE into new SE.

    It would make accessing 'Properties' and 'Archive' much mkre quicker and smoother :)

    Please, this is for all users :)
