Re: Show Thumbails In Groups by Creation Date

I mean more like it takes the files and puts them automatically in groups by the date in, month, day, year format (OR year, month, day).
This is real handy if you got a bunch of photographs, for example.

A simple way to toggle Tree > "Keep Synchronized With Folder In Active View Pane"

I would like a simple way to toggle Tree > "Keep Synchronized With Folder In Active View Pane" that doesn't require going into the Options dialog. I tried to create a macro to toggle it but I have a problem reaching the right tab in the Options dialog, plus I can't get it to accept OK and close the ...

Show Thumbails In Groups by Creation Date

It's been four years since I asked the following question so I hope there is a solution now. When I choose Arrange By Date and then Show In Groups all I get is, "Modified: This Year, Modified: Last Year, Modified: Long Ago," which aren't useful at all. I'm sure there are other users with thougsands ...

Re: beta version 450.14

what's the default HTML browser on this system? It's actually Microsoft Edge. Sorry I may have misread what was going on. I thought X2 occasionally used the default browser to open some of it's help files. I think think that might have been a problem with the PDF reader which I actually set right.

Re: beta version 450.14

I'm reading a lot about not using Internet Explorer as your default browser. I have the opposite problem, I share this computer with someone and they use IE, but not xplorer2 so I would like to set x2 to open stuff in Firefox the browser I use. I confess I'm not trying out the Beta, but I've been wo...

Re: new beta version 4407

What happens is I get files that have names like the following when I download images. photo-0509-2013-chillicothe-ohio-city-sign First, in this example I'm going to have replace t...

Re: new beta version 4407

[P] mass renaming change case of filenames to UPPER or lower, using the MODE drop-down box. In this mode you cannot make any changes to the name other than its case. The looks like something I've wanted for years, but what I've always really needed is Title Case. I can't even see a use for ALL CAPS...

Re: blog: rinse filenames

The Windows 10 explorer will show a little popup when you try to add these characters to a filename: \ / : ? * " < > | I think it's total bullocks that Windows can't be programmed to allow these characters in file names. It's a friggin computer and will do whatever it's told. The number of times I'...

xplorer² highlight search text in Native view

I've got a small suggestion for xplorer². Could xplorer² also highlight the search text in the previews for Search results in Native view? xplorer² currently only highlights text in the Draft view. Highlighting text in Native view, makes it easier to find the text I want to change after I open the f...

Re: blog: large folder speed

Here’s something I don’t understand. I spend most of my time in the Documents folder and if I have Details view and Calculate folder size on I guess it’s reasonable to expect a short lag the first time I open it. What I don’t understand is why if I navigate into a subfolder, and I then navigate back...

I would like to make a macro to attach to a button, that toggles between a specific filter applied by a macros and Show All. Click once to apply filter macro, click again to turn it off with Show All. It's a little bit of finesse I've been thinking of doing, but may be more trouble than it's worth. ...
