Examples: The Dopus context menu and the Windows context menu

As you can see I added a submenu with the Windows stuff on there, but it takes literally a full minute to open that submenu if I mouse over it. And if my mouse moves even a touch while waiting, then the submenu opens and closes immediately. Pretty worthless IMO.

Ah...  embarassed Sorry, I definitely missed your point there. I'll have a look at this and see if I can come up with a suggestion. It'll probably be tomorrow, though.

Oh, no problem.  I didn't realize you're still using your Windows context menu in Dopus.  Mine has just gotten too big, as you can see.  It can be cleaned up but it is all registry editing and I have never gotten ambitious enough!  Modifying the Dopus context menu is also all registry edits, or rather taking GUID numbers from the appropriate registry keys and then creating commands in scripts within the Dopus settings.  However which to place where is not explained very well in the Dopus tutorial - at least not clear to me.  It's like someone pointing out your fuel injector in your car's engine and telling you that changing settings in its command module will fix your car troubles -- but not telling you how to change or access those settings!  I guess they figure we can figure that all out for ourselves.

Me? I kept changing just enough to crash Dopus each time (twice!)

 embarassed Here's my context menu in Dopus - I gave up on using the "Hide Windows items" feature because I literally wait for minutes for those items to appear when I shift-right click and yet it's instant with "the full Monty". Go figure. Anyway, feast your eyes on this ode to excess:

PS I had taken the screenshot earlier in the day, hence the highlighted Bulk Rename Here entry. Note, too that clicking to reveal the rest of the "list" adds another 11 entries  ohmy, all windows default with the exception of "Sweep with Spy Sweeper" and "Unlocker"...

Yikes!  Do you actually use many of them?  BTW, Spy Sweeper hasn't been on my PC for quite a while!  It had issues with using up 100% CPU that hey wouldn't even acknowledge back when they "auto-updated" me to Ver. 5.  I ended up removing it, as did quite a few users.  But as you can see they don't have their uninstall utility set up very well.

Too bad that the Revo Uninstaller doesn't fix past uninstall issues!  Using that now gets all pieces of apps when I uninstall!

I just switched back to the Windows context menu.  However the first time I try to access it takes 35 seconds!  Subsequent attempts take only 3 seconds.  Which still pretty much sucks!  I don't think I'll stay with this after my initial license is up. Too much $$ for some features which require coding knowledge!

Probably give X2 a try.

+. The free version lets you remove items you don't need but doesn't let you create your own subfolders, IIRC.

.. categorize your context menu using something like Hace MMM  ..

So, nosh, is Mmm+ ever updated? 
or may I as well purchase the no updates version ($10 against $17~$30)? 
tellme

Edit: Hang me (not) if I am wrong, but it seems there have been no updates at all since 2005, so I grabbed the $9.99 version. The procedure went well.

You're taking all the fun out of this but I shall try and answer your question anyway.  Grin tongue

I'd say you're in the clear as long as it supports your main file manager, it would really suck if it didn't. I assume you wouldn't have got it otherwise...

mmm+ is good, and I used to use it. Nosh is right, it won't work with Dopus, but I found it very useful with other programmes and, of course, the shell. What prompted me to uninstall it is that its executable is compressed using AsPack - this causes at least one 16-bit programme that I use for work to fail to open under WinXP Pro Sp-2.

I know of atleast one other program (ShellToys XP) that lets you hide unused items or club them up to a "rarely used" group. I haven't come across any other program that lets you create your own submenus though. Maybe there's something else out there...

I cannot see that Flexible Renamer has been updated since May 2003 (except for addin of German UI in 2005) - is this program really to be counted among the best today?

Updated  Thmbsup. Flexible Renamer v8.0 is out. See detaills.

My favorite file re-namer.  It's got to be File Re namer Basic.  Get it at File Re namer Basic

It's got ton's of features like a explorer interface, and fast scanning of folders.  It finds the files for you all you have to do is click on a folder and scan.  Files are displayed in the right pane.

My favorite feature is the ability to select just the files you want to rename,with just a click of a button.  You can select all files in a folder or just a few. 

Other features include list or thumbnail view.  Can add a prefix or suffix, custom file extension and numbering.  It also has a file history option and a undo feature.

Here's a screen shot

I wouldn't dare to settle with the (free) Basic, as only the $20 Deluxe offers Undo - people like me seriously need everything to have the option to undo... - but then again, that is not a big problem, because File Renamer Deluxe 4 seems to be a really fine renamer! However, it doesn't say if Unicode is supported. Is it?  tellme

I was pleased to learn that Flexible Renamer now is Unicode'd  thumbs up

Curt — thanks for the heads up on Flexible Renamer, a fantastic renamer I used for years with version 7, and then development stopped. Speaking of stopping development, Jim Willsher is retiring Bulk Rename Utility after creating a 64-bit version for Vista. He will occasionally release bug fixes, but no more as the app is fully mature.
