Re: Windows 10 intercepts too much

Have to disagree there, I'm afraid. Though it sometimes happened in Windows 7, most of the time it was x2 that opened in many of the same situations, and the reason I'm here asking about Win10 having changed that. Maybe I got lucky and x2 intercepted only for me, but that was my experience. Just goi...

Re: Windows 10 intercepts too much

You could use my own favorite solution to open any file: find the file in x2 first, then use drag & drop from x2 onto the target app. Thanks again, but it's not something that works beyond "open" dialogs, and it's clunky. I'm seeing Windows taking over save, save as, downloads (save where) and so o...

Re: Windows 10 intercepts too much

Thanks, Robert, but it's not about changing a few file types to a new handler, it's about Windows Explorer taking control over things I'd prefer (and used to be able to) to access via x2. I've already changed files associations I needed to, now I would like to get the Windows 10 "Explorer" to show u...

Re: Windows 10 intercepts too much

Folders, "WIN+E" all work as before, with x2. I just installed the latest update of x2 (was on the November release) and no change. Things like Photoshop still using Windows explorer (open, save, save as), as are downloads in Firefox, where neither did before Win10 (it's more than just those two). I...

Windows 10 intercepts too much

Only just "upgraded" to Windows 10 since my beloved Win7 will soon be unsafe. Though I've reinstalled X2 pro to reclaim all the open with stuff and not use Win's version at all, I'm finding loads of places Win10 asserts itself while doing anything other than WIN+E or directly opening it. I selected ...

Re: Xplorer2 on screen after boot

They were all the same, with a /Z flag after the file location. After removing the two extras from startup and applying (no reboot yet), the new ones fell off the list. The oldest one (disabled from starting) is still there.

Re: Xplorer2 on screen after boot

Thank you.
There were two active entries for it there (and a third, already disabled), meaning it was already in there but opening on the desktop prevented somehow since it only started with this new update. The update apparently didn't check if it was in the startup and added a new one.

Xplorer2 on screen after boot

Just updated, and when booting into Windows 7, Xplorer2 is open on the desktop.
I'd come across this once before and found the fix somewhere on line or stumbled on it, but can't find it again. Should have kept notes. :(

Anyone point me to the fix for this? Truly appreciate it, if so.
