Copying big files can take a while. Instead of staring at the progress bar until the action is complete, I would like to be able to do other things in midnight commander.
The enhancement I suggest is to add an extra button to the file copy screen with the progress bar, next to the skip, suspend and abort buttons. Let's call it the background button. A push of the background button would move the copy process to the background, freeing up the user interface to do other things. This is a feature I've seen in Total Commander (a Windows clone of NC) and used a lot.
