Seems to be going nicely now.

I wonder if this one will work for PhilB66.

@PhilB66
For what are you going to use these duplicated files, if you don't mind me asking? Just being nosey.

I'm guessing testing porpoises (like, for a file renamer or something...)

What OS?  I assume it's Vista

XP Pro SP2


Also, could you add a "Duplicate to" feature (similar to "Copy to" and "Move to" functionality)?

I knew someone was going to ask for this...

I suppose I could, but how would you access this functionality? maybe different hotkeys, eg WIN+SHIFT+V to copy, WIN+CTRL+V to move...


No luck sofar with the Win+V combination... so maybe a different hotkey combination for this functionality (Alt + V works just fine to paste a duplicated file in the source folder).

Looks like trailer for a beef feature to me!
You could probably write a dis-cetatean on that.

I just downloaded the exe when I saw your post, Curt.
Works fine here.
Might your first try have been corrupted in transit, somehow?
Perhaps you'll be luckier if you delete the one that doesn't work and then try again.

XYplorer does that : select a file, press Ctrl-S, give a new name to the file, et voilĂ  !  XYplorer needed though.

well now, this is just getting silly so I'll ask a silly question - are we correct in assuming you've copied a file (or files) first (CTRL+C)?

feed for the output comes from the clipboard so if you haven't copied anything then you won't get anything

If you are then we'll try another hotkey - open the AHK script in an editor and amend the line (should be around line 83) that reads

  • $#V::

to something like

  • $^!V:: ;(CTRL+ALT+V)

if that doesn't work, let me know

Ah!  Taken together those explain the mysterious appearance of

I wondered what the buck was happening.

even though it makes perfect cents to me I note that as usual you've been free with your poetic license

@PhilB66:
Nice job with the news splash, PhilB66!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

As you know, I looked at the Winkey code and didn't notice the '+'  :-[

more than enough cents than to try and up the ante with you on this one (I'll only end up short changed)

If you're not whale heeled we can play for lower steaks, those for tuna lately won't cost as much.
