(Image-1) Grouping and possibilities in Quad-Explorer Q-Dir!
I have a recent problem with a fresh install of Q-Dir 8.25 on Win 10 ver. 1909 18363.693, if that matters. I keep having trouble with system Downloads folder. Whatever view I set (usually it is Details with sorting by name and no grouping) it keeps setting view to Details with descending sorting by date and descending grouping by date. The key word is 'sometimes'. Sometimes it works okay, I keep opening this folder, going back and forth. Sometimes I go back with an arrow or just press F5 and the view resets to what I specified. Any suggestions? I have already looked through FAQ and I have 'Save columns' On by default. Also Windows Defender is turned off completely via group policies, so it doesn't work at all.?
Despite setting the display window to sort by name, the files are sorted by last use. It's really hard to search for files by typing the name when they're sorted like this. I've searched for a setting in the menu, but I can't find one.?
Because of the 4 drives shown at the same time and many other great setting options, I only use the Q-Dir. What bothers me is the automatic grouping that I have to turn off again and again. I would like to have the sorting by file name displayed permanently. Unfortunately, I cannot find this setting in the menus and please inform me about this option.
Since yesterday in Q-Dir (without me changing any settings) in a field (4-fold display, see attachment) made a further grouping either subgrouping by letter or date (depending on what I have chosen) For me the rather confusing and puffs up the ad. I have not found a way to undo this. How can I do that? Thanks for your support.?
How do you please remove the lines that separate files based on date (today; earlier this week; etc.) or the nature of each group (folders; devices and drives; etc.)?
Hey, love the app though for the past few versions i have been unable to save my layout. No matter what i do it will not save "Group By" to "None" I can set the app to the view i want then save the current state or save it as Desktop item. Though next time i launch the app it reverts to "Group by" and "Date Modified" descending. I have uninstalled/reinstalled. Tried multiple versions. Portable included. Run from brand new source folders. Nothing seems to help.?
I am checking out your Quad-Explorer Q-Dir program and it appears useful. One thing I noticed and it may be newbie mistake is Group By > (None) does not seem to persist and does not appear to be available as a global setting. I would like to globally disable it. I hate it. I do not like however every time I view a folder, its contents are all rearranged. I want all my folders alphabetical and I want them to stay that way. I would like to be able to make one global setting and have it persist forever. Would appreciate knowing if that is possible. Otherwise app seems well designed. Thank you, Blair?
> In the QDIR the download directory has been changed to a grouping (by date) for several days. A change in QDIR as well as in the WinExplorer to "without grouping" only works until the next start of QDIR - possibly the confi value is drawn wrong?!?
An excellent program, but I want to remove the sorting in time. For example, no sorting Today (x), Last week (x), etc. I have found that I do not know for sure when I used a file, and then it is easier to search by letter.
All of a sudden the above window sorts the files according to date last used, "today", "recently", "long time ago"... the window beneath does not behave like this, when showing file details. How can I make the one window behave like the other?
How do I stop Q-Dir from grouping the details view after every restart of the program?
I had sent you a bug report a few days ago, but I didn't really explain properly. The pane on the left displays as I want it to (except for the color). The upper right pane insists on displaying with "Today," "Earlier this week," etc, which I hate and want gone. I want the same kind of display as on the left pane. The lower right pane will not display any way but the default, no matter what I do. As you can see, they are all set to display by type. You can also see that the color setting is messed up. At this point, the color I chose is only on the active window, which is fine. I can live with it, but you should know what is going on.?
The "Downloads" is my main folder so I have it open as standard. However, it defaults to sort by Date and group by date. If I change the settings, then restart Q-Dir or open a new tab it reverts to the sorting and grouping by date. This is happening on multiple computers I work. Not sure if this is a bug or I am missing a setting? I have tried looking through all the items and even the windows explorer settings to no avail. Thanks
I tried menu option "extras/starting as/use last view" but that is not working. It worked before but for some reason it doesn't anymore, and the grouping is very distracting as I can not find in a glance what I am looking for.?
Using ver 7.94 x64 on Win 10 1903. No matter what I do Q-Dir keeps displaying my downloads folder in Group By Date. Windows Explorer does not do this. I have tried saving defaults & favourites according to online suggestions but nothing works.?
Although it feels like it has been switched off 100 times, the view in the qDir window always switches to "Group change date". Although I want "group-none". Can you help?
In Details view, I'd like to turn off grouping.
How can I get rid of having folders/files listed by date groupings (yesterday, last month etc). I have absolutely no idea how it got turned on but I've spent about 20 minutes trying to find a way to turn it off but without success which is infuriating. I like many of your programs, including Q-Dir, but for me Q-Dir is unusable with columns displayed with date grouping . I'm sure there is a way to get rid of date grouping but even though I've been using computers and writing my own code for some 30 years I've not been able to find it.?
Thank you for Q-Dir ... * -) I use it under W10. For some time now files and folders have been shown "grouped" - unfortunately not always as I would like it to be. Can you set a default somewhere - e.g. always grouped by name only?
Since the last Windows update all my folders are "grouped" in my Q-Dir. I always have to manually go to "view, groupings, none" - and this is very annoying in the long run. Is it somehow solved once and for all?
The grouping of the files within a folder is constantly activated, although I want to permanently deactivate them and have also set this up.?
I customize often the lists view and group settings independently for tabs, then I saved the .qdr file, but when I reload it the customized tabs use another view and grouping.I would like for example to set the view to this: And the group by to this: …. but this is not kept after saving and reloading. Is it a bug or a feature not implemented? Or maybe there's a way to do this that I don't know? Please advice.?
I would have a question about it because it annoys me a little. How can I permanently change the grouping according to .. view so that it does not group. I have to reset it every time.?
