Questions for this:
- There is a freeware Win10 App "QuickLook", works by pressing space bar to quickly view the highlighted file, it does not work in Q-Dir, I am not sure if the key stroke event is eaten by Q-Dir, please check, thanks!?
I use Q-DIr to get a multi window file manager, trying to avoid lots of opened explorer windows. But I have this layout: a big preview area on the left and on the right a four folder zone. By default, preview zone is "Thumbnail based preview" and I cant see MS office docs, PDFs or anything in this mode. I have to change the preview mode to "MS Preview" EVERY TIME I OPEN THE PROGRAM. Is there any way to make this option permanent? Opening in this mode by default?
Hello thanks for your reply! Actually this is NOT a bug of YOUR software! Let me clarify the case: Your software works perfectly, the problem of windows media player that I described happens even when I run windows media player as a standalone program, not only from within your program. So it is a bug of windows media player which of course may be far outside the scope of your development. This is why I asked if you could develop an option for the user to be able to use another player (such as VLC) as the default preview player. Adding codecs to the system is very dangerous!. The last two days that I loaded every possible codec that I found on the internet trying to solve the problem, I have just ended up with a messed up system (ntdll.dll not runnin properly upon launching some applications! and I have to do a system restore at least!! I had read some developers saying that adding random codecs are dangerous for the stability of the system, I found out tha hard way that this is true, so be aware of this on your PC!
