Hi, thx for best launchbar on the web.
I have a special problem on Vista.
I have linked to %Recent% on "Root Folder to Display". There are Link-Files (*.lnk).
Now I tried to set the right value at line "Accept File Patterns" and made a little success with "*.doc.lnk".
But I cant separeate multiple values in this case like: *doc.lnk;*xls.lnk; *ppt.lnk
If I only use one value, than all types of this value are shown, but if I use more than one value, than no files are found.
Any idea?

Thank you very much.
Sincerely,
Jesko.

can you try separating with < instead of ;
and tell me if that works?

What a fast reply (I am writing from Berlin, Germany and did your reply notify only now)  :D
Yes thank you. Thats it.
"*.doc.lnk<*.xls.lnk" did the job for MS-Word-Documents and MS-Excel-Files.
Now your software is the first one I know, it is possible to show the last opend MS-Word- and Open-Office-Documents.  :-*
Greetings,
Jesko.
