Re: Double-click on cursor to open file/folder

Thank you for the answer, Dreamer. I experimented with "Theme off (need program restart)" option and indeed it is the right option. It does what I need it to do if it is not checked. My trouble is that it works properly in Windows 10, but it has no effect in Windows XP, where I have the pr...

Re: Double-click on cursor to open file/folder

What do you mean by "them off"?

Re: Progressbar when comparing files

I would also like to see this implemented. But not by default, it should be an option. Because when the comparison would imply files stored over a network, to be able to display a progress bar, the files should be read as a list or better as a quantity of data, and this would add time to the actual ...

Re: The Settings dialog should *NOT* be modal

I completely agree with the posts above. I also see this as a bug, a limitation where shouldn't be one. I mean, this program is a file manager, it facilitates the managing of files and folders. Why would anyone make a part of it so impractical? Total Commander also has this annoying limitation. From...

Re: RAR Plugin

dsperber, thanks for the answer! But LOL! What I was really searching for was is FC can treat RAR archives as it does ZIP ones. It is clear for me now: it can't. I was asking that because I started using Total Commander many years ago. Recently, I discovered FC and I like it. But I am missing proper...

Re: RAR Plugin

My original question was this: How can I pack rar archives with FC? Is there a plugin? Or maybe I could configure an external packer and use WinRAR? From the replies that I got, I understand FC does not support RAR packing, not even through plugins. How can I configure it then to use installed WinRA...

Re: RAR Plugin

LOL! I know about Alt + F5. An nowhere on that page says how to install a plugin that handles RAR archives. What I was asking is something else. I can see that FC knows how to handle ZIP archives. How can I make it support RAR archives as ZIP ones? Is there a plugin that can be installed to do that?...

Re: RAR Plugin

Haha! :D
I know about that method, but that right-click menu is an operating system facility.
I wondered if FC, as a file manager, manages RAR archives, or if it offers seamless integration of archives, including creating them.
As Total Commander does, or Double Commander.

Re: Double-click on cursor to open file/folder

I'll try to explain on the following picture: https://imgur.com/a/z5t351G In the image above, folder Languanges is selected. The orange rectangle is the selection cursor. In Windows 10, if I want to open the folder with the mouse, I double-click anywhere in the orange rectangle and the Languages fol...

Double-click on cursor to open file/folder

I am using FreeCommander XE 2020 build 810a 32-bit public, in Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows 10 Pro. FC is configured to show items as a list. Problem: in Windows XP, I want to open files and folders with double-click anywhere on the cursor. But FC only opens them if I double-click on icon, name or ...
