Re: Why doesn't FreeCommander remember my choice of programs for opening jpgs?

Which FC version are you using and which OS version?

Probably it's a Windows behavior / issue, asking from time to time.

Re: How to make folder "activate" for a drop down of files only when hovering mouse pointer precisely over its name?

What about the option "Show popup menu for left button drop", or use right mouse button for drop. You can use the thumbnail view mode, the items are larger, so it's easier to drop the items, in the new beta version the new views are available, Thumbnail list and Thumbnail details. Another ...

Re: Address Bar lacks cycling options for its history entries

You can click the address bar free space or the History address bar button to get the history list.

Another way is the left/right toolbar sub-buttons.

EDIT: Keyboard shortcuts - Alt+Arrow down, then Arrow down, Arrow up and Enter.

When a user opens a new or navigates to already existing File Container , the Address Bar changes icons / shortcuts displayed on its right edge - i.e. the Action Toolbar that a user might have set to own liking is replaced with a default one holding 4 icons.

Re: Recycle Bin folders do not succumb to settings of the overall Recycle Bin

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but you can ad it in the Column Profiles and Auto views, similar to the main recycle bin, so it could be always visible and also sorting will be always by Date Deleted, if you want.
