Re: WinRAR and Drag'n'Drop behaviour

What about dragging files into Zips? I use WinRAR for both zip and rar files and WinRAR is the default program for the zip extension. But dragging stuff into a zip gives me the Shell Drop Failed error.

You must be referring to regular expression searches, otherwise this statement is absurd. The basic Everything search is instantaneous.

Re: If I multi-task sometimes XYplorer remains minimised.

What do you mean exactly? For example, you can't restore the XY window from its minimized state by clicking on the taskbar icon? Or XY is your default file manager and when you go to a folder from some other place, you don't see XY restoring itself to show the location? Etc.

Actually, he has... I just installed XYplorer version 17.60 on my new installed of Windows 10 Home 64bit on my new ACER laptop. It stops working when I go to Tools> Customize Toolbar No he has not.

Re: Version 17.60 stops working

@davidhelp: You have STILL not precisely confirmed whether you have the problem BEFORE or AFTER doing any toolbar customization on either a brand new install (without anything copied over from other PC) or with XYplorer /fresh. Don't leave it for people to assume any part of what you are doing.

Re: Option for Live Filter Box instead of Type Ahead Find

I enthusiastically add my vote for optional LFB as the default instead of Type Ahead Find, as I first requested last month back in this post here.

Re: Version 17.60 stops working

Don't think those older crash reports from google search are useful. The program undergoes improvement and maintenance continually and frequently, and some serious problems like this popup from time to time, but are usually only relevant for a short period of time. The data directory refers to the u...

Re: How to search/filter with double-quoted strings?

Double-quoted patterns mean "exact match" (pattern is not auto-wrapped in wildcards). The omission of implicit flanking wildcards is a non-standard restriction on the usual understanding of double-quoted string search, in my experience. File Explorer doesn't do this, for just one example, and that'...

Re: How to search/filter with quoted strings?

Air code but I'd try this: *Act I * Ok, that works. But honestly, why shouldn't quoted strings work as they do in just about every other application one uses? I could easily see new users getting pretty confounded by this. I'm not provoking anything here, this was a genuine, non-intuitive confusion...

How to search/filter with double-quoted strings?

Either we have a bug here (17.60.0006), or I'm getting tripped up again on really basic search/filter syntax. I'm trying to do a quick search or filter with a quoted string, "Act I " to pluck out just the Act I files in the following list of files below, but I keep getting empty results. What's wron...

Re: WinRAR and Drag'n'Drop behaviour

Does seems to be a problem with 64 bit WinRAR 5.40 (when used with XYplorer). I don't see it with 5.31 64bit, but then reproduced the problem when I installed 5.40. Then reverted back to 5.31 and problem again gone. So I suggest contacting WinRAR support and see if they can remedy this, even though ...

Re: Version 17.60 stops working

I use 175% scaling on Windows 10 Pro and not seeing this (with 17.60.0004). Does it happen when you run XYplorer /fresh ? Does it happen right from the start, before you've made any other customizations to the toolbar? Did you previously copy over any data directory files from the desktop PC into th...

Re: Feature? In Search Results & Branch View, dragging a file onto another moves file to root folder of search/branch

"onto another file" ... you might think so but if that file is not highlighted it's not the target of the drop. What you are actually doing is dropping to the root of the view. Ok, so there is a logic here about it. (Though, the move occurs even if you drag the file onto itself, and in that case th...
