Access Client Solutions - Add IFS selection in Right-Click Actions Menu

It would be very useful to include the Integrated File System explorer as an option on the menu when you right click on a session and select Actions. This would work exactly like it does for the Printer Output menu option, it would bring up the IFS screen for whatever connection you're working with on the emulator.

Use Case:

When working in the emulator screen for a particular connection, you could simply right click and select actions and select Integrated File System instead of having to go back to the initial splash screen, select a connection in the drop down box, then click Integrated File System.
