FindeXer

628 posts in this topic

All my windows are forced to open in one Window thanks to QTTabBar but, this might work out for Number 1.

Choose Folder Options,General Tab, make sure open each folder in same window is selected in Browse Folders section.

Number 2 has been discussed but, not sure where it stands in development as most people who use FindeXer want to get rid of the Treeview.

I checked that "same window" thing already... but thx ;)

If i go to folderoptions -> types -> folder, there is an action "open" in bold and it is set to standart.

Maybe this is the prob? Annybody had some expierience with that?

No that's fine. Look under the view tab in Advanced Settings and make sure "Launch Folder in Separate process" is unchecked.

I'm at a loss. Also, I've got way to many registry hacks/tweaks to know which one might help.

Whoho!!!!! I figured it out!

It came into my mind that I also have a notebook, which is really fresh formated...

So tried it on that. There it worked... I looked in the folderoptions and find one difference:

folderoptions -> types -> folder. On my PC "open" was set to be standart and on my notebook

nothing was set to be standart... So I searched the forum again and find that thread:

http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread....ght=window+open

The only thing to do is open regedit and go to HKCRFoldershell

You can see, the value is set to "open". Just 2x click that value and delete "close".

Leave it blank. logoff... logon... there u go ;)

Maybe this is usefull for other people ;)

So, One problem solved. But there's still the other prob with the toggling between treeview and findexer.

Actually, when clicking on the folders-button: treeview opens

And clicking the button again: standart window (with taskpane) opens

I'd love to have: click on the button-> treeview. click on the button again-> findexer

Isn't there any reg value that says windows how to toggle?

I think I'm not the only one having these problems... ;)

Looking forward for an answer ;)

Im with you larzon83, but it seems theres no fix at the moment...

Let's await for an future release that takes care about that

Hi everyone, i got an annoying behavior with this excelent app, when i hit show folder button or start search (it takes the place where FindeXer), and then wanna get FindeXer back but... instead of that, i got no shell till i close and re-open the folder.

Its just me or its a known bug.

Thanks.

Greetz ;)

I'm really hoping for an update on exactly what Austin said, that if I set my icon size to 32 and not display text, the slider doesn't go back as far as I would like it to :

Maybe we'll see more releases soon? Seeing how FIndeXer was just featured over at LifeHacker the other day!

Ahh, that's good news, this app really does deserve to be featured, it's the perfect finder clone for Windows without having to use an extra explorer clone like NexPlorer thats slow! :)

Is there a way to have this active when using the Win+E shortcut? I use the shortcut quite a bit but i usually end up having to activate FindeXer through menu. Can somebody give me a work-around of sorts?

BTW: awesome work... keep it up!

sei-aidyn,

That's in the works according to earlier posts in the thread.

Easiest work-a-round is create a standard shortcut to Explorer on your desktop like the picture below:

I had a question, I hope this is the right place to post.

I downloaded FinderXer (awesome!) and Styler, but one thing I still want is to have the large icons like in this pic:

http://www.markraats.com/FinderXer_Fine_Tuning.htm

Here's what mine currently looks like:

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f248/rai.../untitled-8.jpg

Do I need to do something via FindereXer, Styler or something else? Thanks for the help

You can size our icons (as it appears you have) in control panel>appearance>

icon size - 48

icons spacing both horizontal and vertical - 48

To make your finder open up displaying the icons as you see in my screenshot, you can set up a folder on your c: drive called "applications".

You then need to create shortcuts in that directory to your apps - ie. safari, quicktime, fontbook, iCal and all other typical mac apps you might have installed on your machine.

Change the icons to each of the shortcuts for the correct Mac icons and change the shortcut names to the correct Mac name/description.

Make a shortcut from your dock to the "applications" folder and set your FindeXer to display 'icons'.
