Keyboard and Mouse Macros

It would be great to see macros added to FC. It would save a lot of time for repetitive tasks. Is there any prospect of these being added to FC?

Scroll Wheel Movement

When I try to use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll down a long list of directories it only scrolls 6 lines instead of doing a PageDown. Is there some way to set XE to do a PageDown instead of scrolling just 6 lines? The mouse wheel is set under the control panel to always scroll a page but XE seems ...

Re: "Save Settings" not saving the new tabs

When I try to use "Restore All Settings" I get the error message "Restore Settings: No more internal file identifiers available"

I don't know what that means!

Re: "Save Settings" not saving the new tabs

Thanks for your reply Dreamer. All tabs are locked and the program does update FreeCommander.ini but it does not save the newly created tabs into the file.

"Save Settings" not saving the new tabs

Is there a limit to the number of folder tabs that XE will save? I currently have 10 tabs and have tried a number of times to add two more but they are not being saved by"Tools -Save Settings".

Each time I restart the new tabs are missing. I am using XE version 2014 build 650 on Win 7 home premium

Re: Change Thumbnail Size

Thanks for your answer Dreamer now I've found it. I expected it to be in XE settings under Tools/Settings/View/Thumbnails. I never use the buttons so missed it. Is there some way to save the thumbnail size setting so XE doesn't revert back to the previous thumbnail size? Tools/Save Settings does not...

Mouse Wweel Left and Mouse Wheel Right

How do I stop XE from using the Mouse Wheel Left and Mouse Wheel Right actions? I have these two keys assigned to global actions and do not want XE to capture these. Can I turn them off in XE?

WinPE and FreeCommander

I have FreeCommander working in WinPE but not in tree mode. When View\Tree is selected the program returns the error message "The system cannot find the file specified". It doesn't matter which drive is selected in FreeCommander the same error message is displayed. Can anyone help?

Re: Will release FreeCommander 64bit version?

Hurrah - good to see Libraries will be included in the next release. I find I frequently have to go back to MS Explorer to get access to this feature.

Tabs Question

There is one tab that I use a lot. When I select it I also have to select the Modified Date column because this is the way I find the latest files in the directory. All the other tabs I use I want to have the contents sorted by Name. Is there anyway to have a tab remember the sorting order for that ...

Windows 7 Libraries and Homegroups

Having resisted both of theses functions (Libraries and Homegroups) in windows 7 for some time I have now come to appreciate their value and find I use them a lot. I would be great to have FC include these folders in the Tree view panel to make them accessable from the program. For those how decry t...
