Add update check period?
1. On startup.
2. Every hour.
3. Every day.
4. Every week.
5. Every month.
6. Do not check for updates.

+1 on that, it would be quite convenient to have!

Is it hard to add to the settings?
I don’t want to completely turn off automatic update checking, but it’s also not very good to watch the delay during the scan every time XYplorer starts.

Why do you close XY? You can let run and run and run...

I'm used to there being no unnecessary processes

Well, then use Help | Online Support | Check for Updates and you have full control over the check period. :)

Well, if you can’t do it, then don’t. You are only minor problems and can fix, instead of solving serious problems in xyplorer.
Please delete my account from the forum (I don’t know how to do this)

So you want to close another unnecessary process?

There are indeed some super useful features missing from this software that even the newbie file managers are providing, but here we are seeing versions after versions coming out with superficial cosmetic changes that make no sense in a heavy duty file manager use case. I have a feeling the developer is either running out of ideas or is unable to develop those long standing feature requests (technically incompetence or software limitations??) . Pretty sad ending to what was a promising software for some time. Yet another corporate client based in north EU recently selected a newbie file manager (volume licensing) over xyplorer singly for its abilities and performance in handling large multipart archive files. personally I didn't think the winner was better in any aspect except for these features which were deemed critical by the client.
