Autohotkey is definitely the way to go here. As long as you're Shift-rightclicking, though, why not just Open as Read-Only? edit: as mentioned below, it doesn't work (?!?). Back to my original suggestion. Autohotkey can record you doing this with the ScriptWriter module, which you can then tweak. You'll probably end up with something like: IfWinActive, ...

If it crashes before you launch the movie file (only when selecting it), it's a preview problem. Open Folder Options and click/tap on the View tab Check Always show icons, never thumbnails, and click/tap on OK. That'll fix it. If it crashes after you start the movie (or exactly at that point), you will need to install a video player or update the current ...

Open up Windows Explorer. Go to C:\ Type in *.rar into the search box and hit Enter. Then wait for the search process to find all the rar-files on your C-drive. EDIT: * is a wildcard, so you can also do more advanced things with it. Suppose you know your file is called <something>final.<extension> you can search for *final.* to find all ...

Windows connects to MS servers for many purposes, like syncing time, checking for updates, and even tiny things like displaying whether your PC has access to the internet when you mouse over the notification icon for the network (windows downloads a file from one of their servers to test connectivity).

I dumped the stack and saw that the sysfer.dll (Symantec DLL) is involved when Explorer tries to do search operations with C:\Windows\System32\connectedsearch-appcmd.searchconnector-ms, which is the search which displays Bing results in Windows Search : 0x0000000019ef98c8 : 0x00007ffbd7778a80 : shell32!CSearchConnectorFolder::v_InternalQueryInterface+0x30 ...

You could try using a Live Linux distro. Basically every Linux distribution nowadays comes with a bootable live medium; with it you can run the whole system /from a CD/DVD, an USB pendrive, and so on) without the need of installing it on your hard-drive. Since it is a different system it won't follow Windows' administration setting, and you can easily ...

The file is probably actually deleted, but a handle to it is locked in memory someplace and won't release until the system is shutdown. Simplest thing to try first: Reboot the system. Once it's done rebooting, see if the file still exists and if it does try deleting it again. If you're still having problems after that, then perhaps check out the answers ...

CLI switches aren't the only thing that can control the behavior of the Windows processes. The process invocation via CLI and via Task Manager are actually quite different, and this footprint can be used in multiple ways. CWD (the answer) The reason why Explorer doesn't start task bar is that when executed from CLI, it's working directory is different ...

ConEmu does not have such option because that is standard Windows control. Just change your Windows settings (if you can).

Just format the flash drive if you intend to delete everything. If you do not want to format, try command line: del u:\filename Use tab key to auto complete the name. Or use *.* instead of file name to delete all files (u being the drive letter).

I had this issue. I was using a custom theme with a corrupted shellstyle.dll. I found an alternate DLL for the theme and replaced the bad one and all was well. An alternate thing to try would be copying the Aero DLL to the theme's Shell\NormalColor folder. Thanks to Darth Android's solution for clueing me in.

I use attributechanger to do such things. I don't know if it will do batch files but it does integrate with shell. Light weight and nonintrusive. I've installed on it every box I've owned in the past 8 years. Google "romain petges attribute changer"

One way to fix this would be to move phpUnit down the tool chain. Instead of running it for every small change, just run it once a week or so. Another option, which works along the same lines as well, is to create a pre-production webserver. If you work in a team environment then your team probably already has this (for assembling the pull request and for ...

Unlike ST2, which contained everything in the Packages directory, packages in ST3 are located in zipped .sublime-package files in the Installed Packages directory (in AppData/Roaming/Sublime Text 3). Sublime is internally configured to display a file contained in a .sublime-package archive as originating in Packages, even though it physically may not be ...

The following will create a symbolic link in D:~\Books that leads to E:~\Lib and then set the hidden attribute (+H), the /L switch ensures the attribute is set only on the symlink. The link will be visible in Windows only if the user has set the visibility of hidden files manually: MKLINK D:\sources\Books\X.pdf E:\extra\text\science\lib\X.pdf | ATTRIB +H ...

This worked for me: Thanks. That didn't work as easily as explained. When I open Windows Explorer and select the sort order, it does not make that selection the default sort order. But I just found out that if I open my Personal Folder, then select Recent Places and then set the sort order (and make it he default in folder options), it will make ...

If you go to Start then Control Panel and click on Autoplay you can change the default behavior for whatever type of Media you insert. So in theory changing all of these to 'Open Folder to view in Explorer' should give you your required behavior.

Files and folders you can't delete and can't see by some methods, which mis-report their size, or which come back after deletion are a hallmark of malware. Many modern malware packages ("infections") contain multiple files created by multiple programs that restore each other and start each other if you manage to kill/delete one or another; these are often ...

Not sure if this will help, but it's easy to test: set Windows Explorer to open each instance as a separate process. See http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-to-launch-windows-explorer-as-a-separate/29ea82db-5f2b-40da-a855-8a43983c15c7 and ...

Though this is not a direct solution, you might try the free QDir, http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/q-dir-portable, or similar Explorer replacement. QDir can open from one to four Explorer panes in one window, which can be maximized, if you wish. QDir has the "look and feel" of Windows Explorer, so there is a negligible learning curve. Similar software ...
