I'm not sure if this is really a support request or a feature request.
I'd like to have a general place where users go to access the "file manager".
I know they can go to /imce but that shows no theme so they're likely to get lost if they go there.
They can go to /user/uid/imce. That's okay although that shows the public theme so there can be a problem with the width of the content area. We're not using user specific folders so that kind of feels like the wrong place.
They can access IMCE within a wysiwyg editor which works well but they often want to just "manage files" without editing a page.
For me the ideal thing would be for IMCE to show in the the admin theme. Is that possible?
The elFinder module adds a "Files" menu tab to /admin/content. That's exactly what I wish IMCE would do although I prefer IMCE for several reasons.
Looking back, I see that I asked something similar over a year ago when I was using Drupal 6.
