FARR is awesome!

Win 11 brings up an issue

Location of .ini and Alias folder in Win 10 and Win 11 differ

In Win 10, stored locally %USERPROFILE%\Documents|DonationCoder\FindAndRunRobot

In Win 11, looks like stored in OneDrive

On my Win 10 desktop and laptop, I have different custom aliases since location of some files are on D drive in desktop and C drive in laptop.

Once I have Win 11 installed on all my PCs (desktop and two laptops) this will cause a problem, since aliases will all on OneDrive.

Is there a way to force FARR to look at a local folder for .ini and Custom Aliases?

Or is there a better solution?


Find And Run Robot / Re: naming an alias

Yes! Thank you  :)

This works:

Messages | C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe  --app= /ICON=C:\Program Files (x86)\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\Installed\Core_Aliases\icons\Messages Android 32.ico

Find And Run Robot / naming an alias
« on: December 27, 2019, 03:12 PM »
Hi, not sure what I am doing wrong for naming an alias

This works to launch Android Messenger as a new window:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe"  --app= /ICON=C:\Program Files (x86)\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\Installed\Core_Aliases\icons\Messages Android 32.ico

Adding "Messages | " in the beginning results in nothing launching
Messages | "C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe"  --app= /ICON=C:\Program Files (x86)\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\Installed\Core_Aliases\icons\Messages Android 32.ico

(I did create a custom icon "Messages Android 32.ico" and added it to the Core_Aliases\icons folder)

How can I get "Messages" to display when I type the alias "m"?

Any insight would be appreciated, thx :-)

Find And Run Robot / font issue- font is blocky
« on: June 24, 2018, 07:40 AM »

Using FARR for years, awesome program  :)

Latest version has a subtle font display issue. I am using Win 7 64 bit

The font is blocky. This is fixed by checking "Override default font settings with custom settings below"


Here is a close-up:


Subtle, but very clear to me.

Seemed to happen after I upgraded to most recent version.

Find And Run Robot / File will not launch if there is a space
« on: September 19, 2010, 01:12 PM »

Great program, minor bug report.


Filename .docx

Running Win 7 64bit

Both files will show up in search, but the second file (with an unintentional space between the filename and extension) will not launch. Took me a while to figure out that this was the issue.
