What I have seen in this regard is as follows. I simply copied it and used it, so take it with a (block) grain of salt. I hope it does what you want. ===== My Original Find: Windows registry entries for default explorer view HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams "Settings"=hex:08,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,...

I was having trouble getting my File Explorer in Windows 10 from even coming up, I had a lot of items pinned on it to a network share that was no longer available. As far as I know it was never going to come back after many minutes, locked up - spinning thingy. Then I remembered that I could go to the old control panel, which is really file explorer: So ...

Windows themes that are set via Setting > Personalization > Colors > Choose your app mode, are meant to be used mostly for UWP applications, so only very few desktop apps use this theme. Unfortunately, Windows Explorer is one of them, even if the the Dark theme looks pretty horrible on it. I see the following two possibilities: Create your own custom theme....

What you're asking is for a script that will rename your .WAV files based on filenames parsed from the XML file. To my knowledge that's beyond the capability of CMD/batch files, and requires a fully-fledged scripting language like Python. You can ask this question over at StackOverflow, where you're more likely to find people proficient in scripting ...

Looks like I found the root of the problem. Found one file with extra long filename and archive can not be opened.

As an addendum to the original script you were using, you can do the following: F4:: Macro1: !h, sn ; <-- this is what you want, ALT is denoted by ! Click, Right, 1 Sleep, 10 SendRaw, wt Return (ALT+H, SN = select none) Which is to say, do ALT+H then S followed by N. This effectively does a "Select None" then proceeds to emulate the context ...

There is aprogram called EasyFile. I think it's the best user-friendly and simple solution for windows by now. And it's free at this time. The site is in German and I don't know if there's an English Version of the program available. But you could try it at least. http://tooc.ch/

I've seen other posts with this question but haven't seen a way to modify those thresholds. But Serach does allow you to use expressions as well as the pre-defined ranges. If you type: size:>128MB in the Search box, you will get all files in a single result. Keith

Use safe mode or use Hiren then boot it on your PC. Then try to scan with antivirus or just delete the chamelon explorer.

I have found a solution on a Microsoft thread titled Truncated Folder Names ("Extension" Missing) https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/truncated-folder-names-extension-missing/596fb09b-c41d-42e8-9d14-95a02352d554 A user named Lee Diggins had this exact issue and fixed it using a Windows repair tool titled Automatically ...

This is an old post, however, I just solved the same problem on my Windows 7 Pro laptop and thought I would contribute what I believe caused the problem and my solution. I believe my c:\users\{user_name} directory became corrupted after I did something dumb. After this my computer had the exact same symptoms described in this post. I was able to logon and ...

According to the Fundamental theorem of software engineering, any problem can be solved by introducing an extra level of indirection. Let's see how we can make a Microsoft Office hyperlink take us to something else that does support environment variables. Create a batch file containing this: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %userprofile%\test.txt Save it ...

Here is an article on how to remove entries from Win10 "This PC": https://www.thewindowsclub.com/remove-the-folders-from-this-pc-win.. But what I use is a free program named WinAeroTweaker: https://winaero.com/ which has many more features for tweaking the look & operation of Win10.

I've had the same problem after cleaning a virus. It's a registry edit, check under Local Machine and Current User / Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon and edit the value of Shell to explorer.exe.

I know the question is old, but this issue pops up occasionally. Don't know why the shell sometimes hiccups and loses the GroupBy info for Qucik Access, but as others have noted, the Group by > option is grayed out when viewing Quick Access. Here's the PowerShell to 'surgically' remove only the corruptted saved view for Quick Access without losing all ...

TL;DR - Hold shift and click name :Detailed Walkthrough Start with "Detailed view" Next, click the "Dated Modified" column header, with the arrow pointing down. Finally, Hold shift and click the "Name" column header. The view will now show all folders at the top, and the most recently modified files will be at the top of their group. Same with the folders,...

When explorer.exe crashes, it will generate a .dmp file. You can then use WinDbg to analyse the cause of the crash. Step-by-step instructions can be found here.

If you really want to find the cause of explorer crashing, your best bet is to use WinDbg using the steps that Andrew has written here.

It's what your Windows locale settings consider as the correct order. Try it in Windows File Explorer, it should sort the files the same way. Mine does:

The problem is that Windows will not immediately refresh the disk index, so that it searches through data that no longer exists. You need to force it to re-index immediately. This solved the problem for me on Windows 10: Create a new .reg file and enter the following text: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WOW6432Node\CLSID\{...

It might be just a windows update which didn't have enough space. After you install the update and restart your PC, your files should be restored to their original state. If not... then I think the second solution is to just uncompress the folders: Right click to Desktop folder. Click to Advanced button Unchecked compress contents to save disk spaces. ...

Three most likely scenarios (in descending likelihood): 1) The file requires administrator permissions. Due to UAC controls in Windows, being logged in as an admin user doesn't give full administrative permissions. You may need to force the action with a UAC enabled application. The easiest way to do this would be to use an admin command prompt. Right click ...

Sorry to reply on such an old thread. Like Ramsus Larsen mentioned, there's Vimium for chrome which is fantastic. Your question was in relation to windows explorer browsers. You could use AutoHotKey to bind the arrows to hjkl when you are in explorer. Note that you would be losing the functionality to instantly go to a file by pressing hjkl if it begins ...

It is apparently an undocumented design decision. Prior to Win7, there was only one instance of explorer.exe, unless when you have "Launch folder windows in a separate process" enabled, or something went very wrong. Since Win7, you may have multiple explorer.exe running even when "Launch folder windows in a separate process" is disabled. This is normal ...

SageThumbs is a FOSS thumbnail-handler that supports many formats including PDFs. You’ll need to install GhostScript, but at 12.5MB, it's hardly large.

Okay, I've created two context menu options. The first is simpler --- just a registry edit. The only drawback is that it opens a new window rather than navigating in the existing one. The following can be copied & pasted into Notepad, saved as a .reg file, and merged into the registry: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\...
