I guess I consider TrackerV3 to be a 'system' program, since it replaces Explorer.

Programs take up a lot less screen space in the systray than in the taskbar.

Besides, every fifth program has an option to 'minimize to tray', why fight the system? ;)

Woops, I meant the system tray, but I think you got what I meant. :(

Close to taskbar

Fair enough - keep TrackerV3 open. To facilitate that, how about minimizing TrackerV3 to the taskbar? Or even better, an option to "close to taskbar". Should I open a new poll on this?

Larger folders (say, > 128 items): display-sort-display
Smaller folders: sort-display
Good idea?
Yep, that'd be cool 8)

Explorer opens at least 2 times faster (under Windows Me, anyway). TrackerV3 is probably about the same speed as Explorer at displaying folder contents, but it seems slower because it displays the folders, then sorts them, and displays them again. Hmm, that sounds like a bug! And of course Explorer ...

I find it really handy how Explorer can be opened by pressing Windows-E...

Okaay... it happens every time when I rename (any way, with F2 or not), when I have "Auto-Refresh on File System Changes" set. I'm using Windows Me.

Brilliant! Thankyou. Every new beta, TrackerV3 is getting closer to an Explorer replacement that I'd embrace wholeheartedly (though I doubt it's possible for it to ever be as fast as Explorer, since Explorer is part of the OS).

Skip that

Hmm, I'm not sure myself now. Forget that second post, I'll post a new bug if I can work out what did it. The first post's still valid though.

Sorry for being unclear. I have set "Auto-Refresh on File System Changes", but I think it should exclude renaming.

Can't SHIFT-select and then CTRL-SHIFT-select

It is hard to select to separated groups of file in a file list because after using SHIFT-click to select the first group, you can't then use CTRL-SHIFT to select the next group, as you can in most programs (eg. Explorer, of course).

This would also fix the annoyance of having to click OK on the "gonna do a refresh" dialog that pops up every time you rename the currently-viewed directory.

Don't refresh on rename

I think most users would agree with me that it's quite disconcerting to have the current folder refresh when you rename a file/subfolder. Often this results in the file/subfolder disappearing from the screen as it gets re-sorted. Otherwise it's moved to a different position on the screen, or at best...
