"This background worker is very busy"?

Re: My company now blocks your download URL

I figured out what I have to do now: download updates and install them when my laptop is not hooked up to the company network. I did that this morning and all is well. :D ( :twisted: )

Re: My company now blocks your download URL

I sent them the Virus Total report--thanks. I'll see what they say. But the problem is I can't download x2 anymore--the link gets intercepted, so using it in portable mode is moot. I'm running 3.4.0.0 right now--I can't get the latest version.

My company now blocks your download URL

Nikos: This is maddening because it's stupid. I tried to download the latest version of xplorer2 Ultimate and when I clicked the link I got a page with this message: Virus/Spyware Download Blocked Download of the virus/spyware has been blocked in accordance with company policy. Please contact your s...

Re: Change the row selection color?

Oh yeah. Thanks. I tweaked the background colors a bit, darkened them slightly, but I'm not sure it did much to the selection color. Anyway, it isn't a national emergency.

Change the row selection color?

Is it possible to change the highlight color of the selected item or items in x2? I thought it was but I can't find it among the various options. After a recent Windows update and a complete uninstall/reinistall, the highlight color is kind of purple and offensive to me. I'd really like to change it.

Re: Saving settings without disktop.ini litter

Ah. Thanks man. I've got my workaround: I renamed the column "End of Line......." I'm good. Thanks again.

Re: Saving settings without disktop.ini litter

Thanks folks. I was thinking I'd have to uninstall, reinstall, and rebuild my x2 from scratch. But all I want is one column to be a few pixels wider! I'm just going to live with what I've got, which is pretty close to perfection. This all started because I didn't want to see ".Endian" tacked onto th...

Do you have desktop.ini files in any of those folders?
No. And I don't want to have to rely on them.

Re: Saving settings without disktop.ini litter

Something else: I can't even reset what I have. I got rid of all the tabs but one in each pane and saved the setting. x2 now opens up with just those two folders, one in each pane. But if get rid of all the columns except Name and Modified, and then save the settings and exit, x2 still comes back wi...

Re: Saving settings without disktop.ini litter

This is insanity. Nikos, I have been trying what you suggested--many times, hoping for a different outcome--and it doesn't work: the one column I want widened doesn't stay put. And I have the latest version and "individual tab settings" is not active. I tried FrizzleFry's idea and that doesn't work ...

Saving settings without disktop.ini litter

Every few years, after making some minor change to the appearance of my x2, I have to ask here how to make the new appearance the default without littering every folder with desktop.ini files. What I've done: Changed the width of a column My set up: Two horizontal panes with 10 tabs on top and 8 tab...

Re: onedrive and windows 10

Sure does. You have to check the box to search subfolders, of course.
