Auto-updating folders WITHOUT auto-sorting?

I was using one of my old laptops today with xplorer2 v1.8 on it. In v.1, when I change a folder's contents, the tab auto-refreshes, but it does NOT re-sort everything. That's exactly what I want it to do! I always want to see folders' current contents, so I always want them to update automatically....

"Export Settings" gone?

Hey guys, I've always used the Action > Export Settings command to create a .reg file with my settings. But I just tried it with x2 v4.2.0.1 (prior to updating to v4.3.0.0), and it's not there: https://i.postimg.cc/mDcT0wCv/x2-screenshot.png ("Folder Settings > Save" just saves the active tab's sett...

Re: Eschewing auto-refresh?

I think we're just having some language problems. I'd try to re-explain everything, but I'm afraid I haven't time right now... Thanks anyway!

Re: Eschewing auto-refresh?

you need to turn off the behavior that only refreshes a tab when you actually use it... Sorry, I don't get it. If I turn that off, won't it always refresh? Maybe I wasn't clear, but I don't want any tab to auto-refresh, ever—whether I'm "actually using it" or not. Is there a way to do that? Use TOO...

Re: Eschewing auto-refresh?

Oh, and how do you turn off the horizontal lines in the Find windows? That's new, too (for me, at least), and I don't find it necessary.

Eschewing auto-refresh?

Sorry if this has already been asked—I couldn't find any references to it. One of the many things I've liked about x2 is that, unlike Windows Explorer, it doesn't impose auto-refresh (auto-sorting) on you. You could add stuff to a tab, and it stayed at the end of the listing so you could easily find...

of course you will lose all the other custom keyboard shortcuts you made (if any)
That's okay, I live in a small town—stuff like re-setting custom shortcuts is considered exciting. :lol:

Re: Delete key doesn't work? Turn off type-ahead view?

DEL key is kind of weird in xplorer2 in that you cannot change it from CUSTOMIZE > KEYBOARD menu command. But I can't see why it wouldn't work for you. It is not something I've heard before as a problem. It beats me too! I've even tried different external keyboards. try this: use CUSTOMIZE > KEYBOA...

Re: Delete key doesn't work? Turn off type-ahead view?

I can't help thinking that x2's macro system seems unnecessarily complicated. Apps have had macros for a long time, and developers have figured out simple, intuitive ways to do them. It's not necessary to "reinvent the wheel". For example, here's how macros work in Notepad++, the text editor I use: ...

Re: Delete key doesn't work? Turn off type-ahead view?

Does x2 have some kind of debug mode, or event log, where we can see what happens when I press Delete? And meanwhile, among x2's many features, is there a way I can manually set my Delete key to delete the current selection? As I mentioned, I tried using Customize > Keyboard to manually set Delete t...

Re: Delete key doesn't work? Turn off type-ahead view?

does your DEL key work in other programs? Yes, everywhere. (If it didn't, I'd know it was a system issue, not x2.) to tweak or deactivate the quick filter please see here www.zabkat.com/blog/xplorer2-v2.3.htm Thanks! BTW, that screenshot you pointed me to: https://www.zabkat.com/blog/imageshack/e8w...

Delete key doesn't work? Turn off type-ahead view?

Hey guys, I'm enjoying x2 v4. It's very similar to the years-old x2 I was using, and the Win 10 compatibility was worth the upgrade. :) A couple of questions please?: When I make a selection and press Delete, nothing happens. (I tried setting Delete as a shortcut, but the "Delete" command isn't in C...
