One button bar for drives, but movable

#1 Post by drpavlovic » 13.10.2018, 12:55

I can see that you, in general, made a copy of Total Commander, but it looks more Window - like, not as Total so DOS - like and vintage. The best product in this area of Windows browsers is DIRECTORY OPUS, but you must pay for it. And it has a great feature, the button bar for drives is MOVABLE. So, you can put it on the left of the two panels, and in the middle. So, the buttons are in the vertical position (the same as your middle button bar).
This vertical position for the drive button bar is the best, because it takes the minimum of the mouse move. Left of the panels, or in the middle, it is your choice.

You didn't do much with your middle button bar, your buttons do some totally unimportant actions. You should remove it and give us the chance to put THE DRIVE BUTTON BAR, with the minimum move of the mouse, you can change the drive, if it is in the middle.

Also, above the each panel, there is the letter of the active drive. And on the right of it, the bunch of UNNECESSARY buttons, again. POP UP menu with the last opened files? Why should we need that?

Your commander is GREAT and FREE. But, go and download DIRECTORY OPUS. Pay attention to its DRIVE BAR, how it can be moved where you want. And watch their effective and elegant title bar in each panel: the path of the selected file and nice arrows: back, forward, up, swap...

I will live my beloved Directory Opus, but you must, as you took the best from Total Commander, to take the best of Directory Opus and make your product even better.

Go to test drive, test Directory opus, but you must know that it doesn't come with the one button bar for drives initially. You must play with settings to find that option. You don't have an option here me to UPLOAD the picture, just to send a link, but I don't have any web page to refer to the screen shot of DIr Opus I made for you. Sorry.
You are great, keep going and please, do what I recommended to you. Pay attention to Directory Opus. And you will be the best in the world. With no competition.

This is the screenshot. It will be on filefactory for 90 days, because I have a free account.

I have to disagree with some of your comments, if you don't need some features, it doesn't mean they are useless...

Anyway, your request is possible to add easily:

- right click the toolbar and select "Customize action toolbars"
- create "left border" / select checkbox (or remove items in the splitter / middle bar)
- scroll down within the "Commands" pane
- add the items "Drive C", "Drive D" etc. to the panel, simply by double-click
- enable the option "Show captions - at the bottom"

You can assign a custom icon manually, clicking the ".." item in the "Details" column.

BTW I'm using the drive button with menu in address bar, or keyboard, Alt+F1/F2, Shift+drive (Shift+C/D...).

That is like saying: "Windows 7 sucks because in the Start Menu there is so much stuff that I do not use and so little that I do"

If you do not like the "middle button bar" [AKA the Splitter] then adjust it- FC allows that. I find it very useful as I keep there a lot of change-of-view-or-mode relating options, which I can apply to both windows [Panels]


[I also heavily adjusted my Start Menu of my OS, also by the mean of some tweaks / registry hacks and it suits my needs. What is more: I have devided important and heavy used stuff between my Start Menu, Taskbar and FreeCommander; thus saving space where I need it]
