Windows Explorer opens when clicking on a link in Favorites

#1 Post by ericzang » 09.02.2018, 12:09

Hello,

When I drag a link to a folder into the Favorites column, Windows Explorer is launched to open this link.

I went to the Shell Menu settings of FC and checked all the boxes (including Links), updated registry, rebooted. Still no change.

I would like to drag in links to the Favorites column because it would be a fast way to transfer all of my Windows Explorer favorites. As a workaround I have put a copy of the contents (links) of the Windows Explorer Favorites folder in to a new folder and put this in FC's Favorites column.

Also, when I click on a folder in the Tree, it takes about 1 sec to open the file listing. Clicking on a Favorite folder takes about 2 seconds. When I double click on a folder in the file list, it is fast as I expect it to be. This delay includes folders that are on SSD.

I'm using Win7 x64. Might the x64 version be faster?

Thanks very much, other than these things I like FC very much and would like to be a donor.

Thanks for the hint.
I have changed the handling of the favorites LNK files for the next release.
