Replace winExplorer /ver 650[nevermind]

#1 Post by Snik » 16.01.2014, 14:44

Hello again.
I'm hoping to be able to replace win explorer totally.
I have a few shortcuts, but when I click them, winexplorer opens up instead freecommander xe.

I have 13 TB in hd space, so it's kinda important.

Thanks.

Thanks.

The Winx switch seems to do nothing for me. I'm using 8.1, dunno if that makes a diff.

I tried the regedit route, using this

Code: Select all

EGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell]
@="FreeCommander"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\FreeCommander]
@="FreeCommander"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\FreeCommander\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FreeCommander XE\\FreeCommander.exe\" /C /R=\"%1\""

This actually sorta works, but not completely.
I have two primary shortcuts to specific folders... but after going the regedit route, the shortcuts both take me to
C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FreeCommander XE
Which of course doesn't really help me.

I get the sense that the answer is close...

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys.
I have found another app that seems to meet my needs. I do appreciate the help given.

Later.
