Thanks you for the Folder Contents Preview.

It's great to see new substantial features being added.

My old wrist and fingers thank you too.

Thx Don for the rar support (and 7zip today) with Hover Box

Though I got both Winrar & 7zip installed in my computer (respectively in C:\Program Files\WinRAR and C:\Program Files\7-Zip), I had to tweak both locations in XYplorer.ini, probably because my computer runs under XP SP3 (until April 2019)

Anyway, no big deal, everything works fine now :)
Thanks for your incredible daily support, I never saw such a kind of support on any software.

Is %ProgramW6432% known in XP?

Hey Don, thx for your reply !

I guess %ProgramW6432% is known only in XP 64-bit editions (mine is 32). I just read this on a wiki page :

"The default value of ProgramFiles environment variable on English-language systems is C:\Program Files.
In 64-bit editions of Windows (XP, 2003, Vista, 7), there are also ProgramFiles(x86) environment variable which defaults to C:\Program Files (x86) and ProgramW6432 environment variable which defaults to C:\Program Files"

My environment variables, as shown by a simple Set (from cmd), show what follows (i deleted all values for privacy, keeping ProgramFiles) :
ALLUSERSPROFILE=
APPDATA=
CLIENTNAME=
CommonProgramFiles=
COMPUTERNAME=
ComSpec=
FP_NO_HOST_CHECK=
HOMEDRIVE=
HOMEPATH=
LOGONSERVER=
NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS=
OS=
Path=
PATHEXT=
PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE
PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER
PROCESSOR_LEVEL
PROCESSOR_REVISION
ProgramFiles=C:\Program Files
PROMPT=
PSModulePath=
SESSIONNAME=
SystemDrive=
SystemRoot=
TEMP=
TMP=
USERDOMAIN=
USERNAME=
USERPROFILE=
windir=

I wonder if, instead of tweaking XYplorer.ini twice, I could Set %ProgramW6432% to C:\Program Files and see what happens, but as everything is working fine with the 2 tweaks, maybe it's more dangerous for my computer to add an environment variable whose name is related to 64-bit editions only (?)

Everything is working like a charm with last beta ...29
I deleted both tweaks in ini file, bringing them back to their initial state :
ZipPathUnRAR=
ZipPath7zip=

After that, I ran XYplorer.exe and Hover box worked for everything, Rar, 7zip... without any tweak in ini file !
Bravo Don :tup:

Looks like the latest File Explorer adds a feature called "Friendly Dates" which is nothing but XYplorer's "Age" feature, which was added in v3.02.0110 - 2000-03-19 21:40, more than 18 years ago. :) And I still love it. 8)

Dark Mode - Then and Now

Originally - it made me nauseous.

Now - can't imagine xyplorer without it. :mrgreen:
