Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

does your ShortcutTest.lnk exist or not? anyway try the following script instead (notice the formatting and using double \\ inside paths and using SET for assigning objects -- the sample code above is faulty) set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") set objShtCut = objShell.CreateShortcu...

Re: Macro to set Shortcut.lnk icon

it appears that the properties dialog opens in a new thread, and as such the macro system cannot operate it, sorry. however if you have a fixed icon you want for all your shortcuts, you can use a windows script instead (or powershell) for WSH you need the CreateShortcut method which despite what its...

Re: Command line won't open x2 when folder groups are specified

are your folder groups called exactly <200605_Tax_Top> etc? The angle brackets are reserved DOS redirectors. So try enclosing each group name in quotes, e.g. "<200605_Tax_Top>"

Re: Color tag behaviour and permanency

color tags are fixed on a file path. If anything changes, then the tag is lost. The only exception is renaming ONE file in place, in this case the tag remains on the new filename.

maintaining color tags during other file operations like moving, is left for a future improvement :)

Re: Calculate Folder Size on offline files for Dropbox

Hi Carl and welcome to the forum!

folder size/data calculate "apparent" size. I _think_ if you use "size on disk" [S]tock column, it will report actual usage for such files, but that cannot be generalized at present

Re: "This background worker is very busy"?

this means the background thread was stuck in a long task, and couldn't service things like icons and slow details. Nothing serious

Re: blog: settings in APPDATA folder

the speed increase won't be astronomical, but when closing xplorer2 you may wait 1-2 seconds more if using INI files as for changing from INI->REG all settings from all layouts, it is a bit of a problem. I think that if you have all the layouts open simultaneously, then switch saving settings to reg...

Re: Updated, now starts open with Win10

Re: suggestion: cycling through address bar

that makes sense however with the addressbar the smartest way is to first type part of what you need then hit up-arrow key a few times, and your previous path will come up. This includes bookmark names and shell:xxx paths
