Re: blog: show JPG on map where it was taken

Nice. I just tried on some photos I'd taken with an actual camera (remember those?) and had embedded GPS info. Works nice.

I'll leave it installed but not sure how much I'll use it. It is faster to use than loading my DAM and then going to its map/GPS pane.

Re: Question about using exfat

I realize formatting to NTFS would limit the use of the microsd to this windows machine but other than that are any reasons why I should or shouldn't re-format?

Question about using exfat

I have a microSD slot on my new Windows 10 computer (for the life of me I can't understand why it has one). Although I don't actually need the extra space but I decided to play around with it and use for backing up misc files. One thing that happens regularly is I get a message when copying to exfat...

Comparing two folders

I wonder if this is possible. When I process a photo RAW file a sidecar with the extension .on1 is created and the new photo has the original file name with "_on1" appended. I'd like to compare two folders. One (1) has only the extension .on1 and start with the file name and the other (2) has RAW, x...

Bitdefender context menu now showing

When I right click on a file in xplorer2 Ult v4.0.0.2 Windows 10 there isn't a context menu option for Bitdefender so that I can scan the file. The menu does show up in Windows File Explorer.

Bug or something else?

Re: How to add start external program from menu?

Thank you. I knew it was something simple. They say memory is the first thing to go as one gets older. I can't remember what the second is..... Until recently (like when I had to go to Windows 10) I never needed to think about external programs. Once W10 decided their "Photos" app was the default an...

How to add start external program from menu?

I'm embarrassed to ask this since I've done it once and can't remember how I did it or find any instructions....

I would like to add an icon on my toolbar that will open an external program. In this case Faststone Image Viewer. Ideally it would open in the folder I"m browsing in xplorer2.

Re: How to migrate Xplorer in another computer / PC

In your link to exporting settings you seem to say that storing the settings in the registry rather than ini is the best way to go. Is that correct? Why would storing in registry be better?

Re: Shrunken toolbar icons and text

Thank you Kilmatead. your suggestion helped. By the way, those settings were in Layout Settings and not Global tab on my version. I did have the use small icons already unchecked and have left it so. Basically, I only use this computer when I travel and then I use just a few programs and I think eve...

Shrunken toolbar icons and text

I can't say I've noticed this before because I don't use xplorer2 on this computer very much but I see that the toolbar icons and text are shrunken and too narrow. I'm sure it's a "feature" of this Dell 13 XPS notebook (3200x1800). All display settings are set at default. Almost all the programs on ...

How to clear history?

I'd like to clear folder history but not having any success. Is there an easy way to do that? As an example clicking on the down arrow to show folder history never gets cleaned up even though I thought I'd cleaned from registry and .ini files. Obviously I'm doing something wrong. xplorer2 Ultimate v...

Are Windows login passwords needed?

Looking for some expert thoughts. I know there are some here. I think. I'm debating whether there are any real benefits to having to log in with a password on to my Windows 10 desktop. So far I can't find why I want to bother unless someone can convince me otherwise. My computer is at home and I'm b...
