Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

to run your VBS with arguments you must use the '>wscript xxx.vbs' method. Thanks, this solved it. if you want to debug/troubleshoot scripts, put some wscript.echo(xxx) to see what arguments are passed spent the day experimenting with this and discovered that the xplorer2 syntax which works for use...

Re: display Folders as files

I have not had success with X2 Macros (not being a coder either)

Can you suggest the macro?

regards
Mark

ps I had not been able to find a way to do what I wanted in settings, so I was expecting the answer to probably be NO.
So the possibility of a Macro solution is ENCOURAGING :-)

display Folders as files

I have ONE folder where it makes sense to ...
Tools > Options > Window > Folders sorted == As Files

everywhere else
Tools > Options > Window > Folders sorted == Separately
makes more sense.

Is there a way that I can make X2 display this one folder the way I want if/when I browse to it?

Thanks
Mark

Re: Deleting duplicate files fails

Hi Nikos, yes it does work on a smaller selection ... so I conclude that the problem was indeed trying to stuff 17GB into the recycle bin.....
