Re: blog: column handlers are back

I don't get it. I don't get why microsoft culled so much functionality when they went vista. I don't get why tags can't be added to any file... mp3's have metadata, right? and text files, and all other files... is it the same principle? And what dictates which types of tags (fields) are available to...

blog: column handlers are back!

First, applause to Nikos. 10years late to the party :party: , but still a bug-bear. I've read something somewhere, re streams, and tag data. I think it was that 'the metadata created by filemeta (folder tags) cannot be searched' - ie, by (void) everything' I see I can 'add a tag' to... pictures? (ev...

Re:

I am sure many 3rd party file managers will follow xplorer²'s example. I'm not sure who is following whom considering some file managers never dropped/lost support for this stuff in the first place (even on Vista/Win7, even years ago when Vista was brand new). :-) I totally agree that it was silly ...

Re: xplorer2 HACK : Convert any menu item to a toolbar butto

The x2 details pane ( View -> Details Pane ) is not only interactive, but customisable . And, as of the last update, edit-enabled . Using it to its full extent (beyond the default) will require some effort on your part, however, as I'm not that kind of girl. :wink: WOW. More options! :party: Thank ...

Re: Hotkey to focus on the Address Bar?

I have a mini-scrap (just one, as I can't work out how to non-float other scraps, otherwise I'd have a dock or two full of tabbed scraps !) even on auto-hide, ctrl+shift+tab always makes him popup before my destination (the a d dress bar!?!!?) exactly the same shortcoming as mediamonkey (no path add...

Re: yes please! script catalgoue, approved!!

use of the MenuHacks.exe would be documented in the PDF. I guess this didn't happen? This is why I don't include scripts in UM: There are too many variables and preferences. besides, in implementation also there's the AutoHotkey vs. AutoIT choice/dilemma. As a compromise, we should start a new sect...

Re: Xplorer2Hack: Menu++ Customizable menu for Xplorer2

Menu++ does not support the x2 tokens so you cannot directly do what you want... There is a workaround... create an x2 user command and then call that command from Menu++ like this Action=Menu,Customize,User Commands,6& where the 6 is the position of the notepad user command in the customize/user c...

Re: 'that' STICKY thread...

That would require being more organized than I am.  :o   Don't be so modest!  I have no idea how you manage to test so many issues on multiple OS's.

Re: Hotkey to focus on the Address Bar?

Hello, just a quick question that I couldn't find the answer to in the docs, is there a hotkey to focus on the Address Bar like in IE and Explorer (F6)? Thanks! EDIT: Nevermind, I found out that there is a toggle between the Tree and Address Bar by using Ctrl + Alt + Tab (kind of buggy, doesn't see...
