Sort order in Picasa differs from Win Explorer VS XYPlorer

I know it's been discontinued by Google but I still use Picasa photo viewer, just because it works perfectly for what I need. The only problem is it doesn't respect my specified sort order if I open an image from XY. All my photos are sorted in exactly the same way in both Win Explorer and XY, i.e. ...

Re: Opening as default explorer in MediaMonkey

As well as MediaMonkey I've found that Google Drive also opens Windows Explorer as the default shell instead of using XY (when I double click the 'Backup & Sync' icon in the tray). I've checked the Shell Integration options in the configuration settings. Do I have to change any registry settings or ...

Opening as default explorer in MediaMonkey

I've followed the instructions to make XY the default system explorer and it seems to work well in everything I've tried so far. The only place it's not working is in my music manager (MediaMonkey). MM has an option to right-click a music file and open it in explorer, which is something I use quite ...

Re: Hello and quick question about Dark Mode filters

Just thought I'd say, having now had a play around with XY for just a couple of hours this morning... wow!

You've obviously put a huge amount of thought, time and work into this, so many options - well worth the price!

Re: Hello and quick question about Dark Mode filters

It's OK, I just couldn't work out why my active tab colour didn't match the breadcrumb bar in dark mode when they both have the same colour settings. Didn't realise about smart dark mode/adaptive dimming but it's fine, I just enabled 'Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar' and they match now.

Hello and quick question about Dark Mode filters

Finally purchased a lifetime license today after a trial many months ago. Hello and thanks for your work! One small question to ease myself in (I'll try and read up before posting too many stoopid questions). I've enabled Dark Mode and while I prefer that in general, it seems to dull the colour I ch...

Re: Preview pane weirdness

That's correct, XY will not preview mp4 or avi (WMP plays them fine). Thanks for the K-Lite codec link. I'm probably going to stop there as my PC is used for audio & video production and I've had so many problems recently (motherboard just died so I've been reinstalling my entire system for last 2 w...

Preview pane weirdness

I'm getting all sorts of odd behaviour trying to use the preview pane on video files. Firstly most video files will generally not play at all (apart from .wmv). With .mp4 and .avi nothing will preview at all (just a static thumbnail with "XYplorer trial" overlaid). My default media player (PotPlayer...

Phone contents not accessible

Just been trying out Xyplorer since I had to clean install Win 10 last week and I really like it, to the point of just being about to purchase it. However it looks like it's unable to manage my phone (Android) as a portable device. The phone only appears in XY after a restart and even then it doesn'...
