Hi, XoRRoX, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :D

Very nice job Skwire - I use it a lot  :up: :)

I'm glad to know you find it useful.   :Thmbsup:

I would really like to configure a hotkey for it to trigger, something like Ctrl + G(roup) - would you want to do that? (I saw you developed it in AHK so that should be easy for you, right? :) )

Yes, this app is written in AHK, but it's designed to not stay resident in memory so I can't do a global hotkey.  Basically, it's invoked, does its business, and exits.

Hmm, understand. Would you then be willing to make a command line switch so I can add a hotkey myself in my always resident script to invoke it? TIA ;)

Edit1:
After a second thought, it already has, as this is what is invoked by choosing the option in the context menu.. I'll skim through the registry to find it.

Edit2:
Not quite, as it seems.. Could you help me and shed some light on it, please? :)

F2F doesn't work on command line switches.  That is, it uses what is known as a Shell DropTarget.

Apologies for the late reply.

Okay, thanks for the reply :)

So, there is not any way to assign a shortcut key?

I keep getting an stating "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel." How can I get F2F to work without making it the default program for all the extensions?

Try this, please:

  • Download this: http://skwire.dcmemb...folder/Unreg_F2F.zip
  • Extract that zip file into some folder.  Right-click the Unregister_F2F_Shell_Extension.exe file and choose Run As Administrator.  That should unregister the shell extension.
  • Put your Files2Folder.exe file where you want and run it with Administrator rights as well.  DO NOT run it directly from the zip file and you MUST run it with Administrator rights. It  should ask you if you want to register the shell extension again so accept this.
  • Now try right-clicking a file and see if it works.
