Re: No icon for office files

It might be some issue with 32/64 bit. What versions of Windows, Office, AS are you using (in regard to version, build, and bitness). Also, because office files are zip archives in disguise, an overly eager archiver might cause a mess. Can you check also with old style office files (i.e. .doc rather...

Re: JSON Viewer Plugin

Looks like the viewer does not work if the root element is not an object. My .json files have a list at it's root and only show the "JSON" tree root in the viewer. Am I missing something? The files have been downloaded from the codeplex archive, e.g. https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=visuallogparser ....

Re: Separator between right-click menu Delete/Rename items

Hi,
The context menu you get is composed by windows, not Salamander (you get the same in Windows Explorer)

Why don't you use F2?

Other options are:
- click on the already selected file name
- Main menu (also using acceleration keys)
- the symbol on any suitable toolbar (e.g. the middle toolbar)

Re: Application crash and corrupted configuration

Just a warning: if you do this, you risk a buggy, instable Salamander, because configuraion data indeed may be incomplete and inconsistent. Avoid it if possible. Also you might loose things like plugins,user menu entries, ftp sites, viewers and editors ... In a case of corruption, I tend to export t...

Re: Prevent jump to extracted file when using WinRAR

I don't think there is a way using the standard archiver methods and working within one panel. The easiest way to achieve what you want is to navigate to the same folder in the second panel (Tab, Ctrl+., Tab) and then extract to the second panel (either chosen in the setup, or by pressing Ctrl+Down ...

Re: Destroyed configuration in Win 10

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure, what I should do with the information provided in the link. That information is targeted at Windows XP. Microsoft redesigned shutdown behaviour in Windows Vista. So, how much of it still applies? Furthermore, as I said, I did not have any trouble yet when ini...

Destroyed configuration in Win 10

I am running AS 2.54 in Windows 10. I do not normally have any problems with incompletely saved configurations when shutting down/restarting Windows, even when I have many instances of Salamander running. However, if windows initiates the restart on it's own, as a result of system updates, it garble...

Re: Cannot login via SFTP/SCP anymore (OpenSSH 7.4p1)

I do not use winscp. However, in similar circumstances (with IMAPSize) I had some success by just replacing the OpenSSL libraries with more recent ones.

Re: slow display of thumbnails

I don't know if this works / still works for up to date versions of AS / there is an up to date version of this plugin available, but it appears to be what you are looking for: Explorer Thumbnails Plugin Windows explorer caches it's thumbnails in a hidden file Thumbs.db in each folder where it finds...

Re: URL Formation via "Copy path + name as text"

Hi, The URL returned by AS is valid. You're probably confused about the rather seldomly used username portion (sysnative@). Wikipedia A generic URI is of the form: scheme:[//[user[:password]@]host[:port]][/path][?query][#fragment] What's the problem about replacing 'ftp://sysnativ@ftp.sysnative.com/...

Re: Mapped drives not visible

Does Salamander run as the same user and with the same integrity (UAC elevation level) as Windows Explorer?

Have you been searching this forum for mapped drive?
The following thread seem particularly promissing:

Re: Global shortcut key doesn't activate Salamander

It is with "Allow only one instance ..." option turned off. You can try on notepad.exe, there is some heuristics in Windows trying to activate running instance (on global shortcut key) instead of starting a new one. Unfortunately I'm unable to find any information about this feature. Well, then I c...

Re: Global shortcut key doesn't activate Salamander

Is this with the "allow only one instance" option set or using the -O command line option? Otherwise, why should the system behave this way in the first place? Is there documentation on what Microsoft does to prevent focus stealing and what a programmer must do to actually control program focus? If ...
