Release 22.20

XYplorer © 2021 · File Manager for Windows


XYplorer 22.20 has been released on 31-Aug-2021. Here’s a quick introduction to the main new features:

  • Autofit the Name Column. Now you can let the Name column automatically take up all of the space not used by the other columns. A simple check mark saves you a lot of scrolling and dragging. So useful that you’ll stick with it forever.

    To enable the feature tick Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width of the Name column. Use the Minimum Width field to define a minimum width (in pixels) for the Name column so that this function does not make it smaller.

    Compare the following screenshots to understand what Autofit can do for you:

    Autofit OFF.

    Autofit ON. Notice that the rightmost column now perfectly touches the right edge of the list.

    Autofit ON. Notice that after expanding the width of the tree, there are no scrollbars appearing in the list.

  • Autosize the Size Column. The Size column is the one with the most variable content, the one that’s typically always either too wide or too narrow. With this option, the width of the Size column is automatically adjusted when positions are changed or tabs are switched or when a new column layout is loaded.

    To enable the feature tick Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Always autosize the Size column.

    Compare the following screenshots to understand what this feature can do for you:

    In a folder where the sizes are small: The Size column is automatically narrowed.

    In a folder where the sizes are larger: The Size column is automatically widened.

  • Secondary Sort Order Arrow. Now you can indicate the implicit secondary sort order by a very light little sort arrow. You’ll love it if you’re nerd enough.

    To enable the feature tick Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Sort | Show implicit secondary sort order arrow.

    Note the light arrow in the Name column header while the list is primarily sorted by the Ext column.

  • Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to music by Cedric Burnside.
