Re: Freezing when accessing network folders

if that option is ticked, there's not much else to do. The first time a network is accessed, things get slow. I suppose if you access the same resource with windows explorer (the first time), it should also be slow (?)

Re: Freezing when accessing network folders

do you have the "fast network" option checked? See TOOLS > OPTIONS menu, Advanced property page

Re: taskbar icon jumplist (windows 10)

you must compare the lists when you first start xplorer2. Once you start using the program and browse folders, the frequent folders list changes dynamically, so differences may arise, until the next time you restart xplorer2

Re: "sort" does not work correctly

natural number sort is provided by windows, so I cannot change this behavior. Personally I find that adding somewhere dashes and other places not, is inviting problems of this sort. For best results have a homogenous naming convention, either use dashes or not, or don't expect them to align properly

Re: taskbar icon jumplist (windows 10)

do the folders that show up in the taskbar list agree with GOTO > FREQUENT submenu? The top 10 entries?

Re: file sizes in kilobytes

you mean just have KB and not MB? That's not possible unless you make up one column yourself using the programmable column feature of the ultimate edition

Re: functions in the panel when we are in the tree

in general the folder tree only accepts commands that are "folder related". For other commands just press ESC key to activate the regular folder pane then issue your command

Re: "sort" does not work correctly

it is questionable whether this is a bug, some would say that this is what number mode is all about. For best results use proper alphanumeric sort and add leading zeros as required

Re: "sort" does not work correctly

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

to run your VBS with arguments you must use the '>wscript xxx.vbs' method. if you want to debug/troubleshoot scripts, put some wscript.echo(xxx) to see what arguments are passed finally the conversion to lowercase arguments is a side effect of running inside the macro, but it doesn't cause any probl...

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

1. to get rid of the console window, don't use it in the first place. Instead of $ use > to prompt the VBS command 3. Your script cannot read the second argument (icon) because you use "$Q" which is the filename only; instead use $G which is the full path to the selected item in the inactive pane. 2...

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

I tested the code before I posted it here, and it works for me. Make sure you have it exactly copy/paste as above (except for your own paths) also keep in mind, that automation is only good if it saves you time and effort. If this is way too deep for you and you have to learn all sorts of new tricks...

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

does your ShortcutTest.lnk exist or not? anyway try the following script instead (notice the formatting and using double \\ inside paths and using SET for assigning objects -- the sample code above is faulty) set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") set objShtCut = objShell.CreateShortcu...

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

it appears that the properties dialog opens in a new thread, and as such the macro system cannot operate it, sorry. however if you have a fixed icon you want for all your shortcuts, you can use a windows script instead (or powershell) for WSH you need the CreateShortcut method which despite what its...
