Thanks.

FWIW, the archive comes with some of the AHK code that's been posted to the forums.  Things enabled by default live in the scripts folder, while other bits live in the goodies folder.

scripts (enabled by default) currently has:
Quote
  FARRHere.ahk
    When a suitable Windows Explorer window (full path in title bar) is active, bring up FARR with the corr. path

  SelectionToFARR.ahk
    Send a single selection in a Windows Explorer window to FARR

  ReclaimWindowSpaceForFARR (based on suggestion from skjafes)
    http://www.donationcoder....20535.msg249373#msg249373

  MayBeRunFARR
    Upon invocation, tries to see if FARR is running, if so, offers to stop it, if not, offers to start it

goodies (not enabled by default) currently has content from the following threads/posts:
Quote
  AutoCenterFARR.ahk (uries62)
    http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=16725.0

  RemoveStatusBarFromFARR.ahk (Nod5)
    http://www.donationcoder....=7949.msg172845#msg172845

  Sean-TrayIcon-Farr-Mod.ahk (lanux128)

  ToggleFARRSize.ahk (Nod5)

Added "ShowFARRAtPointer" -- this should cause FARR's main window to show up close to the pointing device cursor.  I use this to shorten dragging distances.  






Also been using Nea as a sort of AHK_L script manager of sorts and have added some non-FARR-related scripts:

  • SevenZipHere - requires 7-Zip
  • RakeHere - requires Rake (tested with Ruby 1.9.3)



SevenZipHere tries to detect some current path (e.g. active Windows Explorer window or containing folder of file open in Notepad++) and open 7-Zip with that path.



RakeHere tries to detect some current path (e.g. active Windows Explorer window or some window that has a title that starts with a full path) and if it finds a Rakefile, attempts to display a pop-up menu of Rakefile tasks (ones that have descriptions).  Invocation of a pop-up menu item should then lead to the corresponding rake task being executed.

So with a Rakefile like:



you might get a pop-up like:





I have punted on trying to support Windows 7 by the end of the year as I don't appear to have reliable access to the OS (due to sharing of computing resources).

Changed to "Release".

Also added "CommandPromptHere" -- as I don't tend to go for registry-modifying programs, but I like this functionality.  It has an option of specifying a batch file to get CALLed before the cd to the target directory.  See the source for details smiley

I use this pretty much on a daily basis on an XP SP3 machine.  I know it has some problems under Windows 7, but YMMV depending on which scripts you choose to use.

Made some modifications to the included README.txt file and reuploaded.  Hope that doesn't cause any trouble.
