Re: Show "Extension" Column Setting - Set to Exclude Folders

I very rarely use this feature choosing instead to "Group By" Type but I agree with OP and would support either A or B (with very slight leaning towards B).

Re: Unable to set as default file manager

I've added Explorer++ to the right click context menu for Folder and Links-to-Folder icons. This allows me to double click on an icon to open it in Windows Explorer and use the context menu to open it in Explorer++.

Re: Font size

Sorry for hijacking, but does it mean that you can't change the icons too? I'd like to make it more win10ish. Generally, the same answer applies… Most (if not all) of the icons come from image files which are part of the source download. Getting the source and all dependent libraries installed and ...

Re: Font size

Nobody's answered you, so… The short answer is, "No."; the long answer is, "Yes, but you either need to be proficient writing/compiling code or use someone else's modified version of Explorer++." I've made an extensively modified version of Explorer++ which gives the user the ability to change the f...

Re: Enhanced Search Dialog

There are a few issues which made the existing Search Dialog sub-optimal for me. The final ones for me are the ability to manipulate the "found" file(s) (especially deleting them), operating on multiple selections and having keyboard shortcuts. Here's what I have now: Search Dialog 3.png As you can ...

Re: Enhanced Search Dialog

I zipped up just the .C++ & .H files plus the contents of the Res folder (I've made a few changes to the images) and added the Release executable to play with. BE WARNED: this executable will drastically modify your current registry settings for Explorer++! Backup your Registry before experimenting....

Re: Enhanced Search Dialog

For bulk renaming, I use PFrank, but it is no longer developed nor supported. I've not found any real bugs but there's at least one enhancement that I would like to see. I just grabbed RenPhoric and will give it a look.

It may also be accessed from the Options> General pane:

Re: Enhanced Search Dialog

Janus, I've recently added a number of non-GUI enhancements to my Search Dialog's code. You may now Delete (permanently or to Trash Bin) or Rename one or more selected (contiguous or non-contiguous) items. Any user action which might change the current Search's results now automatically refreshes th...
