Exactly! I got tired of seeing READ-ONLY and moved ALL the core aliases and icons to the MyCustom folder. Not being able to edit those seemed like having a web browser preloaded with 200 bookmarks that I couldn't modify, and I didn't want to work around it anymore.

 For the Listfarr and Helpfarr ones, I hesitated, because those really do seem "core." But I didn't hesitate much. Wink

The only thing you have to worry about is that the readonly built-in aliases are overwritten when the program updates.  So just remember that if you replace the built-in aliases, make sure you dont rely on having to modify the built in alias files -- instead disable the files that you want to replace.

(or of course you can always use FARR portably and not overwrite the alias files).

I'm a little surprised this works as well as it does:

Formatted for Text with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. Restart FARR | "%FARRDIR%FindAndRunRobot.exe" -exit ;;; sleep 1000 ;;; "%FARRDIR%FindAndRunRobot.exe"

I've now renamed all my Core*.* files to More*.* and then reinstalled to to get the originals back, and then disabled them as you said, so that should be a more stable configuration.
