Re: batch file and %1

Instead of just a dot, which XY does not seems to interpret as a path here, you should pass the full path as parameter to XYplorer. To make this flexible, utilize DOS command CD : XYplorerFree.exe "%CD%" - - - OR, as I understood your question: startXY.cmd @echo off XYplorerFree.exe %1 --- startXY.c...

Re: Saving XY plorer configuration file elsewhere ?

I have the startup.ini file located in the new ADP folder including C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer. The path to the Startup.ini file is located in the same location as the XYplorer program, because that's where it should be. Ah, I see. You mean 'inside', or 'below of'... If you have the ADP folder...

Generally, XYplorer have two main folders: 1. "Application Path" (AP) - aka "Program Folder", the directory called "XYplorer" with the XYplorer.exe and the startup.ini 2. "Application Data Path" (ADP) - aka "Data Folder", the directory with the application (configuration) data. I have the startup.i...

Re: Define current column layout as default

In WordTM there is "Set as default Shape" too for an temporary default setting. Till I redefine it. On the fly. How often I want.
So default may be ok.


Otherwise I would think about "preset"?

"Define current column layout as preset"
"Restore Column Layout from preset"

Re: Saving XY plorer configuration file elsewhere ?

If the Startup.ini path is changed and a backup application folder was created, then I restart XY, shouldn't my catalogs and configuration files load based on the new location ? Only if you have moved your 'catalogs and configuration files' to that new location too. I don't know how educated you ar...

Re: Start XYplorer when Windows Starts

However, when you do this, it may or may. What sometimes happens is that its loaded, but nothing is shown. XYplorer remembers the last state (minimized/maximized/normal/tray) before closing. So maybe you will find XY within the hidden symbols on the tray, because you closed it while in minimized/tr...

Re: New Columns

If it is User-Defined, I would call it User-Defined. So I think about 'User-Defined Columns' , too, but that would be the same abbreviation 'UDC' as 'User-Defined Commands' So perhaps User- Selected Columns - USC or Virtual User Columns - VUC Or, 'custom' is often used, so: Custom User Columns - CUC...

Re: Rename files based on Age ?

And it's my guess that until you begin to show some serious efforts on your own to learn scripting, Not everybody have to become a coder, OK? It should be enough if the user can just execute a script (that's why I suggest often simplifying scripting steps) Even looking up the help to modify existin...
