Re: Wildcard for single digit in Mass Rename

Thank you. After a careful reading of the documentation, I figured out that since the names were all the same except for one digit in the same spot, that I could do what I wanted with Match and replace and a range token, leaving the replace field blank. It just would have been a lot easier with a fe...

Wildcard for single digit in Mass Rename

I don't know what I'm missing but I thought the wildcard for a single digit is "?". I'm using Match and replace part to find "8(a space)(single digit)" and replace it with just "8" to get rid of the space followed by a single digit. I've tried "8 ?" in What to match: and it does nothing.

Re: Context manu copy path name

I cannot tell you the number of times I've looked for "Copy path" then had to try and remember it's called "Copy name" by xplorer2. I wish it would get changed because name just means the file name to me.

Re: Change Windows 10 User Name

I tried that and the explanations were too involved and involved registry editing and it seemed to me the consequences and possibility of screwing up a brand new computer barely a few days old were just too scary for me. After getting a new computer hooked up and turning it on for the first time, it...

Re: version 4 spotted in the horizon!

Yes it shows to the new search. It just seems to be invisible to the rest of the new W10 Start Menu and I can't pin it to the right side of the menu as one of those tiles. The installer did created a x2 desktop shortcut. It's not a (big) problem to me, but it does make me wonder if other people have...

Re: version 4 spotted in the horizon!

Thank you, that's fantastic exciting news. Now I have to ask will we be able to assign buttons and keyboard shortcuts to commands, macros, whatever they are called? I fixed my Menuhack problem. I found I hadn't copied over the Menuhack.exe when I backed up. I would also mention that for some reason ...

Re: version 4 spotted in the horizon!

I just (yesterday) got a new computer with Windows 10. The re installation in re-importation of my settings went fine, but I notice Menuhack buttons I created don't work. I was wondering if the new "macro support" makes working on Menu hack unnecessary. After spending several minutes reattaching all...

Change Windows 10 User Name

I just (yesterday) got a new computer with Windows 10. During all the flurry of welcome screens to fill out it asked me to create a user name. I gave it a two word name I now think is too long, and I didn't realize it was going to show up in the path of nearly every program I use. I concerned about ...

Re: beta 340.11

Did I see it correctly in the discussion somewhere that the next version will support thumbnails with more file details? I like to use x2 to organize my photos. I can use other programs when I need to edit them.

I was all set to install the latest beta till I saw it was Ultimate only.

Re: build 3404 released

I first sent you a list of suggestions ten years ago, and I would like to repeat what I said then, that I am an interface usability freak. I hope I won’t make you regret asking. I went through the past ten years of suggestions that I’ve sent you and I was delighted to see several of them were implem...

Re: build 3404 released

I've been intrigued since I read in post where you mentioned you were adding macros to version 4, if you have a road map somewhere telling what you hope to add to x2 in the future. I'm just excited to know there will be a version 4 some day.

Show image thumbnails in groups by date

I have a folder that contains a bunch of images created on different dates. I was hoping to display them as thumbnails in groups defined by creation date but I can't for the life of me figure out how. I can only get View > Arrange by > Show in groups to group them in large vaguely defined date group...

Any ideas?

I've gotten the following warning every time I try to download the upgrade. It appears to be caused by my wireless router hooked into my cable modem even though I'm not using the wireless connection. I'm sorry to bother you I'm just acting from an overabundance of caution. Warning! The website conta...
