Sticky selection is turning on by itself

Sticky selection suddenly started being "on" for all folders without me doing anything. I can toggle it off with alt-s but when I navigate to another folder it's on again and it is also on when I go back to the folder where I turned it off.

Xplorer2 slowed down by pdf software / global freeze

Are pdf programs known to slow down Xplorer2? It started taking up to 10 to 20 seconds, sometimes a whole minute to open folders, even those with maybe 20 small files and I'm pretty sure it started after installing Foxit Reader or PDF-Xchange Viewer. Scrolling in x2 with arrow or page keys (Details ...

Re: How to display jp2 thumbnails? aka JPEG 2000

Sagethumbs only "displays thumbnails" in the sense of displaying one thumbnail for one selected file at a time in a preview pane or right-click context menu. It doesn't make Xplorer2 or Windows Explorer display thumbnails for all the files in a folder at the same time, at least not for jp2 files. It...

How to display jp2 thumbnails? aka JPEG 2000

How can I get xplorer2 to show thumbnails for jp2 files? The all show up with a generic icon, in my case a red blob which is the standard icon for my photo handler program Irfanview.

File highlighting in sync wizard

Can xplorer2 do the following, and if not, does anyone know another program that can? I want something like xplorer2's Sync Wizard, but it would highlight the unique files (or identical or whatever) with a color while not actually selecting them in the usual sense of the term. It would just be a col...

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

I, personally, read faster than I watch those videos. Is there anyone who prefers to watch a video "if in a hurry"? Everyone over the age of 7 reads faster than watching videos. Videos have zero benefit for the users in situations like these and are vastly less informative and efficient, and easily...

Re: blog: photo collection cleanup

I would be happy with merely some way to find multiple copies of a photo (or any other kind of file) where one copy has been renamed while the others haven't. I can't believe it's 2018 and there still isn't a way to do this. The problem is that renaming files changes the date and size (which is a st...

Force saved scrap pane to retain missing files when reopened?

Is there a way to make it so that when you open a saved scrap pane it will show files that it used to have but have been moved or renamed? That is, so they show up like normal files instead of in the pop-up window "Some files could not be located, do you want to see a list?" I don't care if it shows...

Re: omfg make it stop defaulting to thumbnail view! Driving me NUTS!

Is it OK to delete the desktop.ini files in the pictures? There are 164 of them in folders that I never have or will need to view, except that I wouldn't want to mess up the Desktop or Start Menu which account for around a dozen of them.

omfg make it stop defaulting to thumbnail view! Driving me NUTS!

My brand new installation of xplorer2 on a brand new Win 7 installation keeps defaulting to thumbnail view no matter what I do. I deleted EVERY desktop.ini file on the whole computer. I don't see how even one person would ever want to use this program when it keeps doing that. I have had this proble...

Re: "Automatically re-sort contents" gets disabled after every restart

The problem only started after I got a new hard drive and installed Win 7 a week or so ago (didn't restore from a backup or anything). Never had the problem before. do you save settings on exit? Yes, Save On Exit has been checked the whole time. are you using custom folder settings a lot? No because...

"Automatically re-sort contents" gets disabled after every restart

When I check "Tools > Options > Window > Automatically re-sort contents after moving/copying" the box becomes unchecked after closing and restarting Xplorer2.

If you type moderately slowly (e.g. leave half a second gaps), it should be considered a brand new letter
I tried that; doesn't work.
