Find And Run Robot / Re: Will indexing be implemented?

Thanks for the latest update :)

I would like to give a small suggestion, the "copy" button icon is very similar with common "paste" button icon found in microsoft application which confuses when people try to copy/paste objects! Maybe it would be better to replace with the copy icon from windows/word.

See attached picture of the icon "Copy current screenshot to clipboard as bitmap"

Regarding icons, it could be really handy to add a feature/option to show batchfiles icons in a different way:

if a batchfile named "testfile.bat" has, in the same folder, an icon file "testfile.ico" it could use that icon instead.

(I often use batchfiles, but don't want use a tool like bat2exe to embed the icon because the antivirus incorrectly usually detect the output exe as a virus)

This post is from 2013 but still up to date!!!! ehehheheh  :D :D :D :D :D

Thanks for the feedback Mouser :)

It would be better to have the "Capture Window Object"  and the "Capture Scrolling Window" as separate things.
Scrolling already has lots of things for people to think about!! ;)

And then it would be nice to have that option that would automatically save previous settings and automatically do the following:
  • Begin scrolling Window Capture on this window
  • Start Stitching and Capture
  • Click guess margins

I mean, once the settings are done, it would be nice not to have to do the same steps all over!

I guess the best would be to have profile setting for each target app, but maybe that's a lot of work, so having a save button to store default settings would do the trick for people who want to target only one app


Which setting does the option "immediate capture, don't prompt with choices for scrolling capture" uses? (This option appears when right click on the red frame on window selection)

It seems to just take a screenshot without even scrolling!

Would be nice to use the last settings, for example, automatically select the following on the upcoming windows:

  • Begin scrolling Window Capture on this window
  • Start Stitching and Capture
  • Click guess margins

Brilliant, thank you so much :D :D :D

It's a great tool, thanks  :Thmbsup:

Below a few suggestions :)

  • Is it possible to add an option to open the screenshot folder in the windows explorer?
  • Is it possible to add an option to make a screenshot after x seconds after every click? - If making a screenshot on VNC, I need sometime to allow VNC to refresh the screen
  • Is it possible to have the systray icon to change when it is taking a screenshot (so that I am sure a screenshot was taken)?
  • The option "Launch Internal screenshot browser" makes something funny in W7,64b - all window size of open apps go very slim and desktop icons get scrambled....

FARR is more than really, really great and it can be even better with a few upgrades in place!

Wishlist items, from other users, under: ("FARR V3 Discussion"): http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=36477.0

My updated wishlist:
01. Launch file, Keep FARR opened and Continue searching! - "ctrl+dbl click" launches the file and keeps FARR opened but it should also keep populating results! (not all results are populated instantaneously)
02. Content Search - search for text inside .pdf, .docx, .xlsx, .pdf, .txt!
03. Ignore "accents" - add functionality to search accented and not accented files at once (search for "dinamico" and return both "dinâmico.doc" and "dinamico.txt") - it's quite unpredicted when filenames have accents or not and therefore easy to miss a search.
04. Fuzzy search - so that it may find results that are mistyped.
05. Multithread all searching - to eliminate the occasional delays people experience during searching [from Mouser]
06. Launch file and keep FARR opened but avoid safe-mode - "ctrl+dbl click" is opening apps like word and adobe pdf in safe mode - the shortcut could be changed for "shift+dbl click" or middle mouse button
07. Drag and Drop from desktop into FARR search folder - Drag and drop a file from the desktop into a FARR folder, that is shown on FARR search results, could copy/move the file into that folder (right mouse button drag and drop could open context menu - same as between normal windows folders!)
08. Drag and Drop from FARR into desktop with right click - Drag and drop a file from FARR into the desktop with right mouse button should have the same type of functionality as between windows folders (showing context menu).
09. Rename functionality - "Right click\Shell Context Menu\Rename" does not work! Add rename possibility to FARR!
10. Improved Right Click Context menu - add option to combine "ShellContext Menu" with "FARRContext Menu" - or "ShellContext" submenu could open with mouse-over (same as the "Add to Group Alias" submenu)
11. Indexing - always handy to have a faster system and be able to avoid being so picky with the amount of configured search folders!
12. Costume filetype launcher - option to override Windows settings and to use a costume application to launch files (by use of relative path)
13. Cross-platform - add macOS and Linux support!
14. Allow FARR searching while options window is open - This makes testing easier [from Nod5]
15. Ability to search settings page - "unreal commander" has this in a nice way, maybe something similar in FARR!
16. Bring FARR to front when relaunching FARR - Bring FARR to front and avoid message "Only one copy of FARR at the same time" - same as with your SSC app.
17. Toolbar shortcut items with costume icon - add option to select a specific icon instead of using the builtin .exe icon - could be handy to assign an icon to batch file as well!.
18. Double hotkey to start FARR - start FARR hitting twice a hotkey like ctrl, shift or space
19. Toolbar shortcut items with relative path are not showing the icon - "..\Winamp Lite\winamp.exe" launches winamp but it does not show the winamp.exe icon while "c:\sw\Winamp Lite\winamp.exe" does! (it does show relative path icons if FARR is restarted but it will remove them again when clicking "Configure Toolbar" and "OK")
20. Include hotkey text on context menu items - the text "Launch and stay open" should be renamed to "Launch and stay open [CTRL dbl Clk]"

Have a great day

Spotlight is nice, specially the indexing makes it really fast.

FARR is really amazing for me, it is highly configurable, so I can add different priority for specific folders and remove others. With an hotkey FARR provides the history of recently opened files and also has a small toolbar for other apps. Would be really nice to have FARR on mac!!

The only thing Spotlight is better is the indexing that makes it really fast (even using it with an SSD drive which is my standard for many years, must have if using FARR!!)

Cheers :D

Find And Run Robot / FARR for mac

When will this app be released for mac! Really, really need it!!!! :D:D:D

Was wondering to have multiple screenshots of an application, for that I see a few options, are any of these possible already in SSC?

          1) SSC to monitor and automatic take a screenshot if part (lets say 5%) of the screen changes?

          2) script that takes a screenshot everytime the mouse is clicked (so I can click on the application, and a screenshot would automatically be taken without have to click "print screen" or go to SSC)

          3) "Take a video of the desktop!" but I would rather to have individual pictures than a video..

Option 1 is the one that suits me best, Option 2 is a workaround but can work well, and Option 3 does the job but not really what I am looking for!


Would be nice for the option to be independend for each drive, for example, fast SSD drive C with no index, but slow drive D to use index! :)

thank for the input :)


Is there any built-in way in FARR to run a batch file without launching a “command window”?

There are a few workarounds by means of .vbs files, but it would be much more handy to have an option into FARR for this!

Also, maybe it could be nice to FARR to detect is there is an .ico file with the exactly same name as the .bat file and show the .ico in FARR results instead the generic command prompt icon!



Greeeaaaat :D

I know it is quite some core stuff to change but hopefully you will have the time to tackle the most needed feature in FARR!!! :
Launch, stay open and continue searching! (ctrl dbl click should keep FARR open and keep populating results)

Hopefully I am not being too annoying with this one!!!

Good coding :D

Regarding toolbar would be nice to support "sub-toolbar folders" that would automatic be shown/hidden on mouse hover! :D

The relative path actually works, there is a bug when you set it up(not showing the icon) but if you restart the app it works!

At least if you mean the same as me,

Below a quote from FARR v3 ''wish list''

1. Toolbar shortcut items that are defined with relative path are not showing the icon. (..\Winamp Lite\winamp.exe does not get the winamp icon but c:\sw\Winamp Lite\winamp.exe does!) (it does show icons after restart but it removes all the relative toolbar icons if clicked again "Configure Toolbar" and "OK")

Hi Mouser,

Don't forget about FARR!! It is really really great and there's a lot of features that can take it to pure perfection!!

Cheers  :D

I have 50 and 9000!! that's why this is strange!!!

The final result is not increasing as the item is launched, but when I go to the options and "launch History" I can see that item score is increasing at the rate of 1. I have no idea why this is not going through to the end score and it is also strange because my "History File Bonus" parameter is 50 and I could not see any field that I have 1 as a setting!!

This is much better since I deleted/recreated the history.

Thank you so much for helping :)
