Re: Command prompt options

batosi, Yes, you can pass a path on the command line (or via a shortcut, I assume). Following is some quotes from the program history (taken from the Help file): (25/06/2008) The program can now be launched from the command line with a set of directory arguments: explorer++.exe dir1 dir2 ... dirN wh...

Re: Clipboard Text use UTF-8

Mutex/folder deletion issue (context menu)

Version 1.3 (20/08/2011) Deleting an item in the treeview will select the parent folder prior to deletion (allowing the previously selected folder to be deleted). This does not seem to work with the context menu (but works with File/Delete menu item, or the Delete toolbar button). Create a New Fold...

Search dialog, entering regular expressions

Regular expressions can be quite long! I have noticed - while working on the help file - that the Filename: field (where you would enter the expression) does not scroll as you exceed the editbox width. In order to get more room to enter, you must resize the window. This is " ok ", I guess, but I thi...

Re: Shortcuts (accelerators) - changing

How can I custamize keyboard shortcut? Some programs have this feature built-in: Explorer++ currently does not, as David has said. However, if you want to change one (or more) existing shortcuts (can't create new ones) to different keys - this actually is possible (but not as easy as some would lik...

XP Listview gridline bug (sigh...)

David, I'm doing lots of experimenting/playing while upgrading the documentation to v1.3.3, and have discovered a bit more of the XP listview bug (scrambled lines). Main files pane FIXED - yay! Good job! Actions/Merge dialog - ok for everything, but scroll/page up/down (with mouse clicks, not keyboa...

Re: more toolbar buttons

Several more toolbar buttons would be nice. Yah, I'm with you! I have been involved for a couple of years with a freeware text-editor project ( Akelpad ) which has an ingenious toolbar: the toolbar is customizable using a rudimentary scripting language , which allows several different commands, one...

Re: Difference between the 2 replace Explorer options?

How timely! I just asked this very question to David, for inclusion in the Help file. I don't run Vista or 7 (happy with XP SP3), so I couldn't experiment. Here is his reply (in part): It causes Explorer to be replaced for all folders, rather than just filesystem (i.e. "real") folders. So, if you ch...

Re: strange error message

Is my question really so stupid? Sorry for boring you!! No question about Windows is stupid - sometimes I think Windows is stupid! Looks like the culprit might be Internet Explorer 7; have a look at this thread on the web. This was found in Google searching for IsThreadDesktopComposited . Hope you ...

Minor bug, re: TrueCrypt (double drives)

This is not a serious bug, but thought it might be related to a previous fix (listed in history for 08/06/2008 - "Sometimes when a folder was created, it would be inserted into the treeview twice."). When using TrueCrypt on an encrypted file and mounting it as a drive, Explorer++ shows the newly cre...
