Bug in 830 Beta, and hint how to install 810 again

When I tried to read from an USA stick "h:\..." but which in my "Favorite items" is listed as "g:\..." - called it from there -, FC 830 stalled (both panes and the whole program), and "Alt-F4", etc. did not work, I had to to terminate it with the Task Manager....

Re: FC again opening full-screen instead of remembering last position and size

Thank you very much, Dreamer! Problem is obviously solved. You were right, "fullscreen" was no real fullscreen, but just FC taking, in window mode, the whole screen, and the ugliest problem in this was, when I then resized the window (to 1/3 of the 2560x1200 screen, the favorites list (my ...

Re: FC again opening full-screen instead of remembering last position and size

I had used 790; before posting, I had used 810 which didn't make a difference; now 830 doesn't make any difference either, unfortunately. (Didn't change any setting, but W10 updates itself regularly... No similar problems with other installed software though. Problem had started about 10 days ago, a...

FC again opening full-screen instead of remembering last position and size

Hello, I use the most recent free version 810a, with W10. Problem stated in the subject line has been reappearing for some days now (after automatic W10 update?, did not change settings or anything else in my, FC or overall, setup). I am on a 2-screen setup, FC "remembers" it's on the seco...

To the developer

The thread "Quick filter and folders" needs your attention. If it gets not your attention for another week, and independently of my posts being deleted or not in the meantime, I'll make sure people over the web will know that the developer of this buggy program likes it that way. I'm compl...

Re: Quick filter and folders

Yesterday, I was very specific, but perhaps not specific enough, since I had left out the information that my tries were on my working, not system files, and that these files are all on an external hdd, by usb 2, and the difference that this would make, is of course that reading several hundred file...

Re: Quick filter and folders

I beg your pardon, joby_toss, I misspelled your screen name both times, Toby being a German Christian name (short for Tobias), joby being meaningless in the 3 languages I write in: Very sorry for my inadvertance!

Re: Quick filter and folders

Thank you very much, toby_toss, for your very kind help! __________ A I tried again with 650 and with 680 (I checked in the "About" pane for not mixing them up). I tried all possible combinations for checking/unchecking settings, building them up one by one, and removing them one by one fr...

Re: Quick filter and folders

Your screenshot is from "Reusable Filters". My problem is with "Quick Filter" (as it has been traditionally called, in the help file and also in numerous threads in 2014 from which I deduct the problem has been resolved); per Alt-y, it's the upper part of the first dialog then, w...

Quick filter and folders

Hello, I've tried for hours to make quick filter work on folders, but to no avail: Any subfolder of a folder is displayed, and if a folder contains subfolders only, my quick filters do not filter anything (they work correctly on all files, though). I have read numerous threads in this forum re this ...

Quickfilter problems

First, both in the old version and in XE, the option "Quick search/filter" - "Auto-add wildcards" do NOT work as expected, i.e. if I want to filter entries by "starting with e", it's not sufficient to enter the e, but I need to enter e*. I suppose it's not a bug, but a ...

FC not remembering previous maximized position (2nd screen)

Hello, First, let me say that FC XE is a tremendous program, better in most respects than most paid file commanders (of which I own 5 or 6), and I - use it all the time - tout it wherever I can (lots of file manager discussions on various web sites, and then I always say the above) - would not refra...
