Re: Custom File Icon for executables without embeded icon

It will be possible in the next beta version: + Custom File Icons: Now you can define custom icons that are used only if there is no embedded specific icon. Simply use the switch /d (think "default"), for example: *.exe /d>NiceGenericExe.ico //only for EXEs without embedded specific icon If you're ...

But if I set a portable file icon for *.exe it will override all the built-in icons for every .exe file.

Thanks so much this is pretty life-changing lol

Re: Custom/Portable File Icons and .ico extension

Maybe Don would like to add a config switch to ignore registry-defined icon for *.ico files. I don't understand. If an PFI is defined then the registry setting for those files is ignored anyway. All it needs for the PFI definition is a working reference to itself equivalent to "%1" in the windows r...

Run script from context menu that ejects/unmounts whichever drive was right clicked?

I've seen a couple scripts that can eject drives but they just pop-up a dialog asking user to specify which drive out of the full list. But that's not really any different from the "safely remove hardware and eject media" tray icon. What would really be cool is a script that doesn't need to ask you ...

Re: Custom/Portable File Icons and .ico extension

But if you're really stubborn and just insist that nothing is wrong with your registry or just refuse to read anything I wrote, I think you might technically be able to circumvent this issue by using *.ico>*.ico However, I think that will only work if the ico in question is the only ico file in the ...

Re: Custom/Portable File Icons and .ico extension

I am sorry but I am not reading *such* huge unstructured paragraphs. The best I can abbreviate it is that xyplorer's file icon system already uses dynamic icon handlers. That is the default behavior as you can see in my screenshot. If you're not getting that behavior already then there's a problem ...

Re: Scrollbar & menu Color on darkmode

A known issue. Not easy. One day I'll find a way... Instead of solving the problem is it possible to just circumvent it? I had run into something similar in the past and I just chose to hide these elements. But I don't know how xyplorer is written. Is it feasible to simply hide the menu bar and the...

Re: Custom/Portable File Icons and .ico extension

you would have to define a new rule for each file but if you want to do that, instead of typing *.ico>blahblah.ico, do blahblah.ico>blahblah.ico i'm not sure why you'd do that though, unless you intentionally created a general file icon rule for *.ico, or i guess accidentally installed some software...

Re: Folders with a lot of files charge very slow

idk if this is related, but the only time any part of xyplorer was slow for me was before i defined exclusions in windows defender. so do the same, new process exclusion for whatever antivirus you use. xyplorer.exe is the relevant one but you should also do one for xycopy.exe

Make github desktop's "open in explorer" command use xyplorer?

Not really an xyplorer question I guess but I'm wondering if anyone knows where this rule/parameter might be defined. I'm hoping it's not hard-coded because they give you an easily exposed option of changing the default text editor and terminal. I figure there might be a registry entry or config set...

Re: XYPlorer (Last 2 version) slow and freezing.

My only frustration is that not every reference to explorer can be replaced with xyplorer. Like any function in adobe software that opens a file in explorer will still use explorer. It's like they hardcoded the explorer path in that software instead of using an environment variable. Yes, they proba...

Re: XYPlorer (Last 2 version) slow and freezing.

XY is a great app but I wouldn't (and hadn't) integrate it into Windows (replace Explorer), not up to the task (and stability) and I'm not sure it would be anytime soon (at least a 64 bit version is not on the horizon). Just my opinion. As a standalone file management app is great. Not true at all....
