Tools - Settings - Start program -
Tab Start/TEMP folder


Under "Tools → Settings → Start program" in the tab "Start/TEMP folder", the user may change the FreeCommander start folder and TEMP folder.



Start folder

Under this setting the user may define which folders will be opened in the right and left panels when FreeCommander is started.

The following options are offered:

The actual values for the wild cards %FcSrcDrive% and %FcSrcPath% may be found under the menu item "Help About..."

TEMP folder

Under this setting the user may define which folder FreeCommander uses for storing temporary files. The following options are offered:

The actual values for the wild cards %FcSrcDrive% and %FcSrcPath% may be found under the menu item "Help About...".

A user-defined TEMP folder is beneficial if FreeCommander is installed on a USB stick for portable operation on an external PC. In this case the temporary files should be stored on the USB stick (as defined in this option) in order to leave no traces on the external PC. This option should be used only if really necessary, because it may slow the process down.
