[feature request] File Type display in results - suppress lnk
« on: November 07, 2007, 07:58:29 AM »
Hi,

Since this is my first post, I want to say just how much I love FARR for its simplicity and utility. Wonderful job from mouser as well as everyone else that has contributed.

For my feature request, when you enable File Types to display along with the File Names in the result list, ".lnk" appears for all of the shortcuts. However, that doesn't happen in explorer windows when you have file types enabled there. Maybe it should be configurable beyond the lnk file type?

It's a small thing so if there are strong arguments against adding this, then I'm fine with not having it. FARR is much too useful!

Thanks,
Trevor

Welcome to the site Trevor -- it's not a bad suggestion at all.

Welcome, Trevor!

And yes, I agree, that is a good suggestion.  Would make the display even cleaner.

Mouser, what about my suggestion to have FARR play an MP3 file while it searches?  Where are we on that?
