SOLVED - Toolbar - How to toggle between thumbnail and details view

#1 Post by stephen147 » 16.04.2021, 13:46

I set this up before but I forget how.

I think there's a setting in the .ini file that needs to be changed if I'm not mistaken?

No special setting needed.
Just the button "Thumbnails" which toogles between the Current View and Thumbnails.

That toggles between thumbnails and list view for me.
  1. If you set the thumbnail view
  2. Close FC
  3. Reopen FC
  4. Use the toggle button.
  5. It toggles to list view

[Form]
ToggleViews=2,3,5

This option change the shortcut for "Toggle views" (F9 by default), between List, Details, Thumbnails.

I'm not sure about the numbers, 5 should be Thumbnails view, if you want just Details and Thumbnails, use just 3,5.

I'll add it also to the topic "FreeCommander XE "not so obvious" settings".

You're welcome, try also the Automatic views, it can reduce need to switch it manually (if you're not using it already).

Oh, I did try but I find myself needing to view the same directory differently a lot.

I've only set up some very basic rules for folders that I know I want to view a particular way.
