How to launch FC when I press the Windows+E key?

By default when I press the Windows+E key Windows Explorer is launched. Is there a way to modify this behavious so that FC is launched instead?

What about other Windows+ keys??

Hi Marek, I tried the reg thing with no luck, it complains about no entry-point on the .dll and probably just as well (read below) For what it's worth I wouldn't spend much time on this, as I have a work-around in place (don't close FC with the focus on a folder which contains any large .zips) From ...

Hi Marek, I think you may be on to something here... If I have no .zips in the root directory and it had the focus prior to closing fc, the load time is ~1 sec. Put a zip in the root repeat test, and load time increases to ~10sec. Turn off tree view Restart fc load time ~1 sec. It would appear somet...

Interesting

Very perculiar...

Were those zips in the root directory as I described?

I've checked all the usual suspects, defag, have disabled anti-virus etc.

Any suggestions on what else I could try???

Sorry about confusion, let me elaborate

Firstly I think FC is a fantastic program. I am merely trying to provide feedback, so that if you wish, you may make some improvements... My computer has multiple physical drives and partitions on each drive. On my drive S: Scenario #1 If I have no .zip files in the root directory Navigate to s:\ so...

Hi, The problem is not with double-clicking to open the archive with external .zip program. The problem, is FC tries to display the content automatically. With .zips containing 50,000+ files and several GB of data, FC grinds to a halt trying to display the content of the .zips. Is there a way to tur...

Further from previous post. Both of these are intermittant, seems to be affected if you select delete. Cancel. Then repeat the operation???

Deleting a file, confirm dialog is obscured by main window

Possibly two bugs here: Using 2007.05a with Vista 1. Select a file in the files pane. Press delete. It deletes the filename rather than the file??? 2. Select a file in the file pane. Right click and select delete. The confirm delete dialogue box appears, but is partially hidden behind the main UI. T...

I think I've worked out what part of the problem is... FC automatically interrogates .zip files (similar to Windows Explorer) and I have some reasonably large .zip files (1000s of file contained within each etc) and it slows to a crawl when trying to view a drive/folder which contains several of the...

Performance issues

Hi Ian, I'm not sure if you are one of the developers of FreeCommander software or not? Based on what I've seen so far I think this is a great product and resolves much of the grief I have come to expect with Windows Explorer. My primary development machine has about 0.5 TB of storage and is home to...

Speed up loading and screen refresh

On my PC (2 physical drives with about 6 partitions on each drive, FreeCommander takes about 4 seconds to respond after clicking the icon to launch it, and I'm not sure if I clicked it or not... Using Vista, 4GB RAM, 3.0 GHZ P4 CPU Also scrolling through list of files in a folder with many files wit...

Directory size doesn't always activate when clicked

When clicking the KB icon to display the size of sub-directories, it doesn't activate and show the sizes, unless you explicitly click on a folder in the RHS pane first.

Ideally clicking the KB icone would enable/disable the size of sub-directories and refresh the display immediately.
