Re: accidentally closing tabs

okay, that's fine. It only seemed to happen with that iffy mouse & maybe risky double click settings.

Re: accidentally closing tabs

Yes, I saw, that reopen is a nice new function.
Closing by double-clicking can't be disabled?

Re: accidentally closing tabs

Hm, well... I switched to a different mouse and first impressions are that this seems to help. Maybe it was just a case of a cheapish mouse to eager to interpret single clicks as double clicks somehow (clicking through folders was also somewhat erratic). Over and out.

Re: accidentally closing tabs

Might it have something to do with the doubleclick speed? Is double clicking a tab mapped to the close command (and if so, is it possible to change that in the options somewhere)?

accidentally closing tabs

I've been using xplorer2 pro with no problems on a desktop computer for years. Now I have a laptop and an annoying thing happens: often when I click on a tab to select it, it is interpreted as the command for closing that tab. Yet I didn't click the little cross at the wright, I just clicked the tab...

Re: problem with moving settings to new computer

Forget that. A reboot of the computer solved this. Should have tried that first.

Re: problem with moving settings to new computer

Now there's another problem. The programme worked fine for a while, but I hadn't got around to filing in the registration code yet. Now when I start it up I get the evaluation-or-fill-in-code dialogue window. But it hangs on that. I can't click "I want to enter the regsitration code", it w...

Re: problem with moving settings to new computer

Thanks, starting with the escape key held seems to work.

problem with moving settings to new computer

I installed xplorer2 on a new computer. Thinking to save myself some time I exported the reg file for the settings on my desktop as explained on the blog (https://www.zabkat.com/blog/13Apr08.htm) and imported that reg file on the new computer. However, if I now start up xplorer2 on that new laptop, ...

Re: user command and MS Word

Just to report back on this: it's finally fixed. And without re-installing MS Office, as I had even been planning to do. Funny thing: the Windows shortcut on the taskbar to MS Word didnt't work anymore either. With the same error message. Then I found the shortcuts to MS Office and found their comma...

Re: user command and MS Word

Well, I can still open a Word file in Word by double clicking it, that file association seems to be intact. However, rtf files don't currently seem associated with anything. So if I try to open them I get the question how I want to open them. I get a list of programmes to chose from. If I choose Wor...

Re: user command and MS Word

Hi, thanks for the tips. Rebooting didn't help. When I right click on a docx file, it'says to open it with "appvlp". So I tried the following. This command line: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\client\AppVLP.exe $N Nothing happens. No error dialogue, no error sound. Either with o...

Re: user command and MS Word

Same result without argument. I'll try a reboot this week and report back whether that changes anything.

user command and MS Word

I have a very simple user command to open a file in Word instead of in another word processor (I have several, and Word is not the default programme for all file types). It looks simple enough. >"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\WINWORD.EXE" "$N" Suddenly, this ...

Re: blog: divide and conquer shell extensions

I am trying this remedy, but it won't work, since the software won't allow me to disable a large number of shell extensions at one go. So... any other ideas?

[Edit:] Never mind. Solved. I had to check fewer items than I thoughy.
