There might not be such a command as Alt-Grey* (or Alt-NumPad* as I prefer to call it) Nikos but it does expand the entire branch multiple times if you use it. Shift-NumPad* does the same. NumPad* gives the "Not applicable...." message.
Is this system dependent? I'm using Windows XP home.

Try using WinRAR, which will generate Zip or RAR archives. This displays the desktop.ini file in it's list of files to compress and you can therefore select all files except the ini file.

Thanks Nikos, found it - "Hide protected operating system files" was the option I hadn't checked in control panel.

If I was a cat I'd have lost my nine lived many times over! I've been poking around in computer hardware and software for 25+ years now and I expect I'll continue to do so.

Alt+G does and does not work I've now discovered. Typing *.ext finds all files with that extension, which is what I wanted to do, and it worked. Trying other wildcard combinations (123*.jpg for example) has a strange effect and I suspect it's getting some sort of combination of the Windows file name...

Knowing how the recycle bin stores it's filenames on the disk I hadn't tried the "matching a rule" command assuming if the simple filter didn't work then the more advanced filter would have the same problem. The matching a rule works simply by typing the name (with wildcards) in the Named box - no n...

Special folders

I'm playing around with the recycle bin again!! Although it lists the contents with their correct file names (as opposed to the DOS names of the files in the actual Recycled directory) attempting to use a select filter says there are no files matching the filter. Does this mean if I want to select f...

Moving files from the recycle bin

I wanted to move some files from the recycle bin to a folder so decided to use Xplorer² rather than my normal way using the Windows recycle bin. Manually tagged the files I wanted to move and it worked perfectly except the tags were not removed from the files in the recycle bin and they appeared to ...
