1  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Shortcuts to files integration to a new window on: April 13, 2014, 08:03:41 PM
First thought: Contro, you REALLY need to invest in a good third-party file manager instead of always trying to make Windows Explorer do things it wasn't really designed to do.

Second thought: It sounds like you want what is known as a "flat view."  In a Windows Explorer window, have you tried the following?:

  • Press F3.
  • Enter *.* in the search field.
  • Press Enter.

It's perfect Skwire. Wonderful indeed. Flat View is enough for me.  Kiss

3  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / SOLVED: Shortcuts to files integration to a new window on: April 13, 2014, 04:12:47 PM
I would like to automatically create a new window at the same level to the target one containing all the shortcuts to files contains in the first with no subfolders adding to the initial names the name of the original subfolder.

Examples :

Target folder is : 2014
so the new window/FOLDER may be 2014.VF
The target folder have many subfolders like : 2014.01, 2014.03, 2014.03.15, 2014.01.07, etc.
Each subfolder may have archives in it (excluding the typical of the system....., desktop.ini,.....) like example.txt , example100.txt, example.doc , example.eml, example.pdf etc.
If the file example.txt is in 2014.01 folder then the new shortcut in 2014.VF will be : example.2014.01.txt. It not a copy of the file, only the shortcut.
If the file example.eml is in 2014.01.07 folder then the new shortcut in 2014.VF will be : example.2014.01.07.eml .
and so on

I would like an exe or a ahk script for this or similar.
We can reconstruct that "index of files" in any moment if files have changed. Not neccesary automatical for this case. May be manual. It will create a new list in the 2014.VF.....

Tomos is right. Windows Explorer Although its library functionality is a big improvement, it is not extensive enough for your needs. And with that we enter into the realm of alternative file managers,

Directory Opus is the only one I am really familiar with, so I'll focus on that one. Within Opus you can create your own layouts that you can apply on any set of folders and files. Sorting, different types of columns etc. you'll find it. Together with the manual and an adventurous spirit, you'll find out how. Besides that you will likely discover many more ways to alter your way of working with folders/files once you the the hang of it.

Maybe its pre-configured views already do what you want.

The filesystem of Windows quite powerful. However, support for displaying two files with the same name in the same folder, but a different date is not possible (if I understood your description correctly that is).

 

 Sad

I think Directory Opus is the best

aysss tomos dopus is not freeware.Always is mentioned as a big program. And i know is a superb program .So I was thinking about a simple script.
Even perhaps i have something similar.
By example . a script able to create an auxiliary folder at the same level of the target folder containing all the shortcuts to files and folders and subfolders and the files contained in the target folder.....
i have tried with free commander to create a txt file list, but is not comfortable.
What i am most used is to see the files in a window . So the solution with the shortcuts may be useful and viable.

so the script may scan the folder selected and its subfolders creating a new saved windows with the content of the target folder, all is files and even distinguish if some files have the same name and extension....

I am seeing the libraries from windows 7 but need to be formed previously.
My problem is different because I create a folder to be seen every day.
So I would like a more dinamical search folder, or library for the occassion.
always are libraries with the same structure : list of files in a new window contained in the selected folder and its subfolders....

The right organization (WE views and a particular need)

I have my files organized by expedients.
Each expedient have a crono folder.
Inside the year, the month-year and finally the day inside.
I think this is a good organization when you revise the subject by date.
But many times I also need a "general" view of the documentation....
And other times I don't remember the date or need a more general view....
Revising date by date is sometimes boring and slow.
Windows explorer options seems oriented to order files inside a folder, but i would like more options.
By example :
1. See an independent list of files contains in the year folder simply from the windows explorer views
2. See an independent list of files contained in the year.month folder simple from the windows explorer views.

Simply obtain the list of files contained in a folder and its subfolders, by date and even considering the possibility of the same name file.

Seems like a saved filter of course.
May be an ahk script ?
A new see option in the windows explorer (w7) ?
a new contextul menu option ?
A new filter option in the contextual menu option ?
I would like an answer integrated in the windows explorer options.
But any other answer may serve....
I think is like a "virtual" browsing of files to the parent folders (the selected folder) even considering the possibility of files with the same name inside the subfolders.
So i will obtain a new "virtual" window with the content of the folder and subfolders....

I suppose there are many ways to get this.

Virtual folders in windows explorer
How to create a virtual folders to include several criterias and organizations from a given WE window ?

Best Regards

P.D. I would prefer a simple tool and not a specialised tool like a second browser apart WE for windows 7.....

if you don't want the overhead of a(nother) addin here's a bit of vba code that will do the same thing

[copy or print]
Sub addlinks()
Dim rowno As Integer, i As Integer
rowno = 2

Worksheets.Add before:=Sheets(1)

For i = 2 To Worksheets.Count
    Sheets(1).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=ActiveSheet.Cells(rowno, 2), Address:="", SubAddress:="'" & Sheets(i).Name & "'!A1", TextToDisplay:=Sheets(i).Name
    rowno = rowno + 1
Next i

End Sub

work very well.

ASAP Utilities has a function to create an index sheet with named links to each worksheet. You could easily take that list, select and copy all, and paste as values.

Really ?

I have an excel book with many sheets.
I would like to list, in the more easy way, the sheets to a txt file or similar

How can I do this ?

@Contro
Another way, outside Windows Explorer, to see if a folder has files is to use Eagle Mode. In it all directories, folders and files are viewable and you can zoom in on any. If any folder does not show files below it, there are none. You can use Eagle Mode from a CD to view contents of a hard drive or USB drive. There is also a PET package to add it to Linux Puppy.
Regards

I'll take a look.
Thanks sword

is only retain or maintain in the selection window the last selected path and icon .
I like more than the other utility but better if I can repeat sometimes again easily

The root folder, icon path, and allowed filenames should already be saved.  Are you running the program from a UAC-protected folder?

No . I don't like UAC in any place.

Ejem. I have created many of that folders with listas.exe , an old program to read a txt file and make automatically the subdirectories.
I don't remember where i download, but i think is programmed in C because was in a c forum that now don't exist, but the programmer is in the spyware forum.

Even we can have an executable in an often path with its ini file.................... tongue

Keep in mind that the MT Icon app only does one level of recursion.  That is, it only looks for empty folders one level deeper than the root folder you specify.  This was as per the request of the original poster.

It's all i need. I want this to solve a general problem with main folders.
