Re: Folder Statistics saving windows position popup ?

Save settings on exit is in Tools/Options/General (tab) with the main menu and File/Options/Options/General with the ribbon. The option is at the top of the tab and has a drop down to choose where the settings should be saved (registry, ini file in appdata, ini file in install folder). Saving to reg...

Re: xplorer2 beta version 5.007

* FIND ALL HARD LINKS. If you put a file that has one or more hard links in a scrap container (or in the miniscrap pane), then select it and press CTRL+L keys (or GOTO > FIND TARGET menu), you will see all its clones listed next to it. The Find Target command in the scrap pane menu in under Tools r...

Re: hard links - info about other hard links to same files?

Here is another script to list all hard links for a file. This one is in PowerShell and sends the list to an x2 scrap pane. $list = $env:tmp + '\list-hard-links.txt' if($args){ $file = (get-item $args[0]).fullname # using Hermann Schinagl's ln command which does not require admin to list links C:\to...

Re: declone: with duplicate selection wizard

Are hardlinks of the same file just ignored (not compared) or not added to the dup list? I was testing with a folder of pictures in which the same pictures are organized in different ways (by date, by name, by id) but hardlinked to not waste space. declone only displayed duplicates which are not har...

Re: blog: backup or transfer your settings

I guess the plain menus is supposed to be like basic/advanced settings in other programs. It seems that it is checked by default in fresh installs so it tends to catch new users (maybe to protect them?) or the occasional veteran cleaning house. I have pointed it out a few times and I think nikos poi...

Re: blog: all about layouts

as nikos mentioned, you can use /S:<layout name> to load x2 with one of the alternate layouts just edit whatever shortcut you use to start x2 and add the /S option I do not remember the reason I started using an alternate layout (rather than the default) as my main layout but I have been doing that ...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

I'm just too used to the menu in x2. I did play with the ribbon some back when nikos added it to x2 but got tired of having to look for commands that I use often. I don't hate the ribbon in Windows/File Explorer when I use it on other PCs.

Re: beta version 450.14

there is a setting (in the settings editor, global section, more options) that tells x2 to use the default browser rather than IE

there was a thread about this awhile ago because some browsers did not like the link that x2 sends

Re: beta version 450.15

where in the reg to you need to create the DPF_TABINSERTNEXT value? OK, so DPF_TABINSERTNEXT is not an actual value it is one of those bin values registry.txt shows DPF_TABINSERTNEXT as part of binDualPaneFlags so I adjusted binDualPaneFlags in ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\MainFrame Settings fro...

Re: mouse clicks accumulate

I have the sticky command in the main toolbar on most of my layouts, that way you get a visual indicator that it is on and I do turn it on on purpose from time to time. It seems there should be an indicator (similar to the filter one) on the status bar at the bottom of the x2 window for sticky mode....

Re: anybody using descript.ION files?

I don't believe so unless of course the regular filename is 8.3 short. This link from JPSoft via Wayback Machine explains the format of descript.ion files. This description mechanism was created by JPSoft (I think) before Windows NT and Windows 95 introduced longer filenames to Microsoft OSs. But th...
