Re: How to adjust this forum to remove that wasted space at the bottom?

In your personal settings you can sort the topics "newest first".
So you never see the bottom of the forum again.

You have to set file operations to "Use FreeCommander"
Tools - Settings - File/folder operations - Tab General

And you have to use the buttons/shortcuts/menu entries for copy/move. Not drag&drop.

Re: Onedrive folder not synchronising

I think this has nothing to do with onedrive. Maybe there are different templates used from FC and from Explorer. (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\ or maybe online setting) Can you describe how you create a new excel file? And also FC-version, 32-Bit/64-Bit, Windows-versi...

Re: Help with Find Duplicate Files

...However, that leaves me with several hundred duplicate pairs that have the same size, creation and modification dates (but may or may not have the same filename). The problem is that the Duplicates Selection button only gives you options to select a duplicate for only those three criteria . How ...

Hi Dreamer,

there is no FreeCommander.tabs.ini in my settings folder, all tabs are saved in FreeCommander.ini.
How can I activate FreeCommander.tabs.ini for saving the tabs?

You can change the "size auto" column to another size column e.g. "size kb" or "size mb".

Re: MS Word and Edit New File (SHIFT-F4)

This is because the empty file isn't a word document.

What's about using context menu >>> New >>> Microsoft Word
