Release 19.60

XYplorer © 2019 · File Manager for Windows


XYplorer 19.60 has been released on 30-Jan-2019. Here’s a quick introduction to the main new features:

  • Maintenance. This is primarily a maintenance release with lots of bug fixes and small improvements, especially concerning the new Dark Mode.

  • Disallow Delete By Key. Now you can prevent accidental deletions-by-key in the folder tree.

    To enable the feature tick this: Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Safety Belts | Disallow delete by key in folder tree.

    A new safety belt.

    When you now hit the DEL key in the tree (or any key combination that you have assigned to the "Delete" command) nothing will happen apart from this status bar message:

    Delete by key is not allowed in the folder tree.

  • Confirm Delete. The Confirm Delete prompt has been much improved.

    To enable the feature tick this: Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Safety | Safety Belts | Confirm delete operations.

    When you now delete files or folders you are informed not only about the selected items but about the deep (recursive) contents in case any folders were among the selections. For example:

    70 things you should know before you destroy them.

  • Selection Stats. The Selection Stats dialog prompt has been much improved.

    Find the command "Selection Stats" in menu Edit | Select (and also in the right-click menu of the list’s empty space). You are informed not only about the selected items but about the deep (recursive) contents in case any folders were among the selections. For example:

    It’s what you selected.

  • Random Rename. For what it’s worth, now you can rename any number of files to random strings. Might come in handy if you make your money as a spy.

    Bored by those same old filenames? Here’s something to spice up your file management experience combined with some cerebral exercise: Randomize your filenames!

    Select the files you want to revamp, press F2 to enter Batch Rename mode, and paste this pattern into the edit field: <get rs>.

    Ready to randomize.

    Now check out the before and after shots:

    Boring.

    Exciting.

    Note that the <get rs> variable can be customized using additional parameters to suit your tastes. Check out the help for "rs" under scripting command get().
