enby, thanks for the contribution (although I cannot figure out which donor email address is linked with "enby" ;) ). I do not rely on these donations for my subsistence or anything, but it always brings a smile on my face when these rare events happen! -- plus I can show proof to me mum that I am n...

[... recovering from a LMAO fit ... ;) ] i didn't know about this utility but i suspect it takes over the shell tooltips for its own selfish means if these guys are doing it the "proper" way (you can check for a key named "InfoTip" or something like "{00021500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}" under e.g...

Phil K: how do I make 3 panes instead of two ? you can't -- unless you open another 2x instance GarconFils: how about a file encryption feature! if you have windows 2000 or better, then you can use the standard NTFS encryption facilities, available through a folder's properties dialog, which you co...

you don't need to do anything in particular other than checking the save program state on exit option in the View | Options dialog i've noticed that if you have the thumb viewer open when you exit, then next time it will be restored to the preferred size; if you close it on the other hand and reopen...

there's no way you can do that in the present version of 2x i'm afraid you're going to be giving your fingernails a hard time for a while yet  :p on the other hand, i've seen some mouse drivers (in the control panel) that have this option to simulate double clicks automatically for you, you may want...
