Re: Slow startup 20 seconds on fast laptop

Thank you, thank you thank you from me too! I started seeing 30 second startup times - a 30 second delay almost always points to a network problem. I verified that with the text get("loadtimes"); and turned off network browsing on startup. All is good now. I'm not sure exactly when it started, but t...

Allow error dialog to be copied to clipboard

I'm having some hard drive problems right now, and while trying to work past that some of my copies fail due to I/O errors. I'm not sure if the error dialogs are being displayed by the shell or by XY, but in case they are XY's I'd like to request that the contents of the dialogs be able to be copied...

Re: Can't enable custom context menu

Thanks - that was it.

I never would have figured that out on my own.

Can't enable custom context menu

Right click doesn't bring up XY's custom context menu. "Custom items in shell context menu" is checked in the configuration. I have tried turning that setting off & on (with a restart of XY in between). I have updated to 18.70.0100 with no improvement. I've restarted Windows. I'm at a loss about how...

Find Files: highlight the "type" field if it's not "All types"

I use the "Find Files" tab in the Info Panel quite often - it's one of the best things about XY. 99% of the time, the Type drop down selection on the "Name & Location" tab is set to "All types". But occasionally I'll set to a specific type to narrow down the search (of course: that's what it's for)....

Folder size caching not doing what I expect

I'm looking forward to using the new folder size caching feature, but it's not working as I expect. I hope that I'm stupidly doing something wrong. I have enabled "Cache Folder sizes" in Tools > Configuration... >General > Tree and List Then I go to directory A, press Shift-F5 and get folder sizes. ...

Re: Like a new feature? Say thanks here

Drag and Drop. Now you can change the default drag and drop behavior (which is Move on same drive, Copy on different drive), and e.g. always Move or always Copy. Might save you a headache. One of those things that never occurred to me should have an option since it's just "the Windows way". Well, I...

Thanks for the pointer - I never noticed that (I think I never use the "File" menu). I will try to train myself to use that avenue to the clipboard items.

Re: Like a new feature? Say thanks here

I must say, I would have never thought to ask for the 'obfuscate;' feature, but I can see it usefulness when posting screen shots. That said, aside from it's potential actual utility, I have found it to be quite fun playing around with it for a few minutes. Much more fun than I ever had with the 'ma...

Wish: Add XY context menu items to the 64-bit context menu

Would it be possible to add the following XY-specific entries at the top of the 64-bit context menu?: To Clipboard > Rename Special > Zip > Move Up Show 32-bit Context Menu This way I can make the 64-bit menu my default and still get these XY features from it. Personally, I only ever use the "To Cli...

Wish: improve message for file too large for destination

I tried to copy a large file from one drive to another and got a failure that I couldn't figure out the cause of. This was the most detail I got from XYCopy's report: FAIL (other reasons) New C:\temp\crypto2.obsolete.tc -> E:\temp\crypto2.obsolete.tc | The parameter is incorrect. However, when I tri...

Also, thank you!

I had no idea bout this setting. I think Don should maybe consider this to be made the default on x64 systems.

Re: XYplorer New Website Interface..

The new website certainly is modern and stylish - it matches what many new websites are doing. That said, I tend to agree with the people who don't particularly like it, but I'm not sure if that's because I'm a grumpy old man... It seems to require more scrolling and clicking than the last design. I...

Re: Feature rquest: easy way to recompress photos

Thanks for everybody's help & suggestions on this. It looks like I may have to finally figure out how scripting works, but until I get around to that, the little one liner: If it's about image dimensions only, you could proabably use an XY command: savethumb(, "*_small", 800); attached to a toolbar ...
