Dropbox support in XYplorer?

Ages ago an association insisted that I joined Dropbox.
At the time I was using PowerDesk.
This currently shows the Dropbox icons etc. but I now use XYplorer.
How can I 'move' Dropbox to XYplorer? (Dropbox have been no help.)

Re: Favorite & recommended programs - general

Positive in the Feng Shui sense, or what? :kidding: Donald? ':kidding:' did not appear in your quote on my screen; no hard feelings. My "...positive..." may have been subjective. While I shuffled my folders and files around (drag and drop) in XY quite often files/folders did not finish up where I m...

Re: Favorite & recommended programs - general

Woops, Luckily I had kept the PowerDesk 8 installation exe and the registration code so I could reinstall it. XYplorer is a non-starter for zip files apparently and PD is very good. The main reason I installed XY was so I could add notes/comments to the hundreds of Program Files folders so that I wo...

Re: Clipboard Manager

I have used free Clipboard Magic from CyberMatrix for ages. No reasons to change.

Re: Comment column?

By right-clicking [in] the comment column, you get a context menu with the ability to edit the comment among other options

Too soon after Christmas for me! I was right-clicking 'Comment' at the top of the comment column without success.

Comment column?

As an ex PowerDesk user I am used to adding comments to file and folder rows. I have created my Comment columns but it is very tedious to go through the Favourites menu each time to add a comment but I cannot see in Help how to add a toolbar icon or a keyboard shortcut.

Unzipping .zip files

I am trying out version 9.70.0000 in W7 Professional. When I 2-click on a .zip file in XYplorer it loads my PowerDesk 8 with that file highlighted. It seems as if I am stuck with PD if I need to work with zip files (PD's Archive menu option).
