Updates? Updates are fun!
Well, I rebooted (software, especially M$ products seem to like machines to reboot) and it cleared up the losing focus problem... for now! I was wondering if, since the only "weird" thing I had done to break it was put my notebook to sleep, if this could have something to do with it. Dont quite see why this would make a difference, but hey, who knows. However, when it was a problem, the focus issue did not seem to matter which application I was in at the time.
I have the excel weirdness on Win2K and WinXP. The first file opens no problem but if the second excel file opens beneath the first one, FindRun just stays open and I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del to get it away. FindRun also stays open if I launch an Excel file with macros in it because of the "Warning Software can contain virus'" dialog, after I enable the macros, and the file comes up, FindRun goes away. That's why I was asking if it could minimize as soon as the file begins to open.
Choosing columns... what I mean here is that you could right-click on the column headings and choose which columns you want to see. For example, I dont really care to see the Score column but I like detailed view because it tells me if it's an exe, lnk, etc (due to the above mentioned problem with lnk and shortcuts). Not a big deal and if it doesnt get implemented it wont be the end of the world, but it would be kind of nice.
As far as the whole lnk and shortcuts issue, there really is not a whole lot I can tell you. They just dont open. If I press a number that corresponds to a lnk file, FindRun goes away and nothing happens. I tried looking at the lnk files themselves to see if they point to the wrong place but they dont. This happens on my XP machine. Havent tried at work... something to do Monday i guess.
And, while I'm requesting away and making myself a pain, i was wondering if you could add hotkey functionality. FindRun is great dont get me wrong, but there are times when pressing Win+C to bring up a program is simpler than hitting pause/break and typing a few characters. I had been using ShellEnhancer for this functionality but it has so much other bloat to it that I'm looking for a way to get rid of it. Find Run has 99.9% of everything I've been looking for except for hotkeys. I had about 5 hotkeys set up to different programs that I used all the time. FinRun is great because it allows access to all programs everywhere but for those that are used a lot it would be nice to bypass the main dialog.
But, as with all requests feel free to not do mine!! Great program anyway! Coding isnt easy so thanks for the work you've put into the program,
