Re: I created my first hard link and have a few questions

I have a few blog articles about links www.zabkat.com/blog/11Feb07.htm www.zabkat.com/blog/20Feb11-symbolic-links.htm basically hard links should be the most robust, surviving renames, moving and editing, but in reality many editors destroy them www.zabkat.com/blog/21Sep08-save-files-preserve-commen...

Re: BUG: TAB to move focus to the next field or button...

if you are talking about the autocompletion, if it shows up it means that you have started typing something first, so you must finish the job before moving to a different control. Using the keyboard, you either press ENTER to accept the edit, or ESC to cancel it. Then you can tab to other dialog con...

Re: blog: dark window theme

xplorer2 lite is UWP already, but it doesn't support dark themes either (search the MS store)

Re: disable the file-download dialog from .html,.mht etc.?

I have never seen a "file download" dialog when previewing HTML. Still excluding these types from the preview using the registry tweak should work!? Try using TOOLS > ADVANCED OPTIONS menu command to do your edits instead of the registry. Also for HTML files probably you need to specify -HTM which i...

Re: blog: dark window theme

If there was a way to allow X2 to simply follow the native settings for the OS, that would be fantastic - but I suspect that requires more of a re-write of the code than is necessarily worth it for you. that's the crazy thing, MS have only provided dark mode for UWP (store) apps, and desktop apps l...

Re: blog: dark window theme

I will look into it but it is going to be a very big job for questionable usability return. Fashions! :roll:

Re: Trying to use/access cloud storage through xplorer² 4.2.0.1

all cloud services install an "app" or a windows service of some sort that does the magic of showing remote resources appear like local files

Re: Option for modifying default column width?

did you turn on the option to autosize the NAME column? this could turn counter-productive. Instead resize the name column to taste and then xplorer2 will use the same size every time

Re: msi files - can't move / delete / rename

@jimspoon, try closing both preview/details pane, and then one at a time to see which one is causing the locking for you

Re: xplorer² summer offer (upgrade discount)

both xplorer2 and deskrule allow you to save search patterns, perhaps deskrule is easier to handle as all attribute boxes are always visible and ready to accept input

the upgrade offer will be on all august

Re: Eschewing auto-refresh?

regarding the advanced setting for inactive tabs, it would be much faster for you if you just tried what I said :) it will make tabs behave like you were used to as for the "grid lines", the problem is that I didn't understand your question, what ails you? I took a guess about the grid lines, it was...

Re: msi files - can't move / delete / rename

I tried an MSI file with the previewer AND details pane enabled and didn't see any locking. Are you using any file details/columns that could be extracting information from the MSI?

Re: 4.2.01 Assistance

to be honest I don't have a clue. I know some people have consistent problems with WMP, and I was hoping that after I got the latest windows 10 update, it would start crashing for me too, but now I have the latest 10.0-18362 and still it doesn't crash. So it's going to be a very hard bug to pin down...
