This seems to be working fine now, without the craziness I've experienced in the past. Windows 11 has its own issues, in that windows that open on the lower resolution still have a weird overly large layout, but when moving to the 4K window and back, everything goes back to normal - and it is not an Xplorer2 issue because it happens with quite a few applications I have.

Although, all the fonts in all my profiles were reset to 8 pt - too small for me to use on all profiles on both monitors. But after adjusting that one thing in all profiles, all is well.

Thank you, wholeheartedly, for addressing this and for all of the time that you spent on it.

Thanks for all the silent install options switches!

One question... While there is a /S uninstall switch, it's not silent due to the window that pops up about removing settings in the registry. Any chance that could get a switch too so the uninstall can be non-interactive? (I realize that it also opens a browser window asking for feedback. I would prefer that could be suppressed too, but I understand why you might want it and won't try to convince you otherwise -- especially since it doesn't require user input for the removal to proceed.)

Thanks.

are you trying to help the user or rob him of his options?

The goal is always to give the user options. In this case, the option to uninstall without needing interaction. I'm not suggesting that you shouldn't allow users to choose whether they leave or remove their settings. Rather, I'm requesting that there be a way to indicate that via the command line.

I will add /S support for the uninstaller (it will be equivalent to full uninstall)

There is already a /S switch on the uninstall, but the popup asking about settings ignores it. The rest of the uninstall is silent with the switch however.
