New Suggestion for a further autohotkey software
« on: April 15, 2009, 09:41:59 AM »
Hello Skrommel,

I have got a suggestion for a new autohotkey program.

It is terrible that in the windows of Windows Explorer (and other Windows programs) the columns width not be adjusted / resized automatically.

A half automatically solution comes from Mikrosoft itself, namely the Hotkey: Strg + (+) (Numlock).

A autohotkey script which needs only one keypress instead of two would be very simly and consist only one raw, for example:

Quote
LWin::Send, {CTRLDOWN}{NumpadAdd}{CTRLUP}

but perhaps there are improvements possibility?

But by the way I wrote (programmed) a fully automatically, hook(s) based solution for this permantent Windows problem....

Thanks, I didn't know about this feature...

I like that resizing is not happening automatically.

Do you need to resize columns SO often that pressing two keys is too much? :)

Thank you very much for your reaction!

I like that resizing is not happening automatically.

And I do the oppisite and I found people in the Internet they thinks like me. It would be the best when MS would program this problem as an option and the user could switch like the user want it.

Do you need to resize columns SO often that pressing two keys is too much? :)

Sure, I do so very often, many times per day. Every window open operation, but also the changing of a directory in the same window, and after a rename, a deleting or a copying/moving of a file appears this show/representation problem again and again, doesnt it?

Regards,

Peter2
