I love this click
« on: October 17, 2012, 01:06:32 PM »
I am trying windows 7.
Under xp I use Filebox eXtender from hyperionics and FileMenu Tools from lopesoft.
I think one of these two programs give me opportunity to click in a windows explorer window when the save, save as, open window is open and click in one of the windows explorer windows produces the selection of that windows in the save-save as-open window.

But now in windows 7 I don't get that "position".

Do you know any simple soft for doing this. I am very custom of this feature.

Best Regards

P.D. I can put screenshots if was unable to explain well what i need.

That would probably be Filebox eXtender, as I also have that installed and love the feature.

I don't know anything about getting it to work in Win 7 or what other tools can be used to have the same feature. (I am still on XP)

All I can suggest is that you check your settings and make sure you have the correct option selected.

I will revise the configuration and comments. nevertheless w7 seems to have the favorite folders management, But I have installed the 64 bits version of filebox eXtender, but fails me very often.

I will revise the configuration. I can't live without the option.

It's the same configuration. i don't understand. I need an alternative. Perhaps is the mixture between my old beloved software and the new.

no, that aspect doesnt work in Win7.

Have a look at this thread
FBx eXtender's 'Click switch file box folder feature' - can this be done in AHK?

(doesnt sound too positive for Windows 7), but just try it and let us know if it works

I am running FileBox eXtender on 64-bits Win 7 Premium, with no problems
-but I have only activated it for use in dialog boxes, not in the window title bar
(I don't remember if there were any problems with such):

does the feature Contro mentions work there Curt? (I think it might work for some apps, cause I'm caught off-guard by it occasionally, but it doesnt work in the few apps I just quickly tested).

-tomos' post forced me to read the initial post more carefully than the first time... No, FileBox eXtender on 64-bits Win 7 cannot do what Contro wants them to do. I didn't know, because I never used this particular feature, on XP or Vista.

-they are the same. FbX on XP, and FbX on W7. The exact same boxes.

I am trying now the free version of Direct Folders
I will comment.
Flash Folders seems to have died to seven
And my dearest Filebox eXtender is not consider by some webs because is not in development any more.

Curt I think is a "rara avis" for my fault.

I am very fond to portable applications.
the other day I installed cobian backup not portable version. To my surprise in the windows 7 registry installed on the letter C: cobian backup was pointing everywhere to the letter M:
And so continues making security copies. ....

so probably I have executed Filebox eXtender in a similar way.
