Post New Requests Here / Tags in Windows Explorer
« on: August 19, 2009, 12:03 PM »
Hi there,

I thought I would just give it a try, who knows what might come out. For years I've been looking for a file manager which could replace good old Windows Explorer (XP ofcourse). In the end I didn't like any of the alternatives. Windows Explorer just works most of the time, it's usually faster then the alternatives. It has one downside however: although you can supposedly give tags to files, they won't work!

You could probably call me a tutorial freak, I collect them on an external HD (over 500gb :Thmbsup:). But let's say I have a tutorial about AJAX with jQuery, would I put it in the jQuery folder, or the AJAX folder? I think tags would be a great impovement that would introduce faceted classification to Windows. Windows 7's libraries are looking promising, but are still no tags.

So, I don't know if it is possible and if it could be coded in a few hours, but a tags system in Windows Explorer would be really nice. I was thinking of being able to add tags to files and to be able to filter on them.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

I found out about this great piece of software this week and it replaced Launchy immediately. There's one thing that is bugging me though. I'm not using firefox that often, so it is one of the programs I open through my launcher (previously Launchy, now FARR). Launchy 'learned' quite fast that when I type in the letter f, firefox should be shown on top. With FARR however, firefox is shown second (score 789) after Fileinfo (file extension seeker) (score 1000).

With Launchy I could blindly type [f] [Enter], but now it seems like FARR isn't learning at all. I don't know the first item in the list (is it part of FARR?). I hope somebody can clarify the process for this and/or has some tips.

Thanks!
