  • I can see the 'lock' option, but it doesn't do jack. I lock a bunch of tabs and when i reopen it goes back to default single tab on Libraries..maybe it is again something with Windows applications saving settings where they have no permission

  • the lock option does NOT work in any flavor of Win7, and in any user mode. useless to me now.

  • nevermind the above comment about tabs not locking, I found that if I put everything in groups, the fact that on startup it keeps defaulting to Libraries is no biggie !

    This is great stuff, I literally have tried EVERY available free and paid alternatives to MS Explorer, and now I think this is hands down the best tweak.

    The problem I had with other alts is the window used to resize (crunch) everytime I switched off the TV. Only MS Explorer didnt, and this plug in made it invaluable.

  • I guess Q-Dir is the only alternative to successfully add Folder Size as a column in W7

  • ok I guess I reviewed in a hurry ...uninstalled this after installing on all my computers. many bugs in Win7, still shrinks when TV is switched off, hides some context menu entries, learning to live with stock WE and use libraries and right-click saved locations on taskbar icon.
