Well, after searching for whatever alternatives might exist out there, lo and behold, Skwire nailed it.

Seems to do exactly what's asked for.

Still testing it out, but so far so good.

Thanks Chris and wraith808.  Using Excel does seem a viable option.  Able to copy/paste, or import, into a single column.  Then Ctrl-Click to highlight cells, as needed.  Hit delete -- which leaves blank cells.  All good.

And, no, haven't yet decided which ones to delete.  Need to look over, review, maybe another time as well.

Suppose one has a long list of names, one after another, in a text file.

One wishes to delete a number of those.

The standard text editor will only allow you to delete one at a time, unless they are contiguous in the list.

Looking for a program that will allow 'marking' various rows, to then subsequently delete them.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Sounds super, Vic.  Looking forward to it.

Sphere, thanks for the additional leads!

Thanks for the lead, sphere.  I'd prefer to not need any user intervention.  Set once, forget it.

I noticed there are many Java countdown timers out there.  Android apparently is built on Java.  Wonder how hard it would be to use existing Java code, and make a tiny Android ap as requested.

Lots of Android countdown timers out there, but not what I want.

The one below comes close:

Here is what it lacks, that I'd really like to have:

-- Save user-defined/adjustable default countdown amount.  (20 minutes)

-- Start counting down as soon as program runs, no user intervention needed.

-- Make sure program can be scheduled to run on device (tablet) start.

-- Allow for playing whatever 'sounds' are available in system.  (series of beeps)

-- If possible, pause the existing music being played (AIMP), and after sounding (beeping for 3 to 5 seconds), allow music to resume.

-- When alarm goes off, don't require any user intervention.  Just close and disappear.

No need for any other bells and whistles.

mouser, if you are up for it, too, would be super to have a small window open on screen to say "Capture Successful", and to go away after a few seconds.

That's true, as well, with regular capture.  Never can be certain that a capture was actually made.


If only.  Hmmm.

Pop-up dialog still pops up.  And stays up, screen center.

Normally, as said, it's best to have that pop-up window show itself, just to be certain that a capture was indeed made.  Then I click on "Save image but hide".

My normal setting is:
Preferences -->
The Basics -->
Interface Options -->
After Capture Show -->
PopUp Choice Dialog

However, if I want to automatically inconspicuously make a capture, I don't want any pop-up.  No interaction.  Other than command line batch file executing.  Please.

So, if there can be a way of over-riding, via command line, that would be ideal.


Looks like that will do the trick, Ath.

Thanks a bunch!

Normally I want SC to come up on screen when I capture.  Just to be sure it's capturing.

However, there are times I use command line, and don't want to see anything.

So, please allow an additional command line switch:

ScreenshotCaptor.exe -capture screen_silent

Yes to both questions.

As I recall, at one time the tray notifications for Screen Captor did work on my computer.  Not sure why not now.

For some reason the Balloon Tip in System Tray doesn't show up after a screenshot capture.  I do have the preferences box checked, yes.

Any ideas what I might be able to do to get it to show up.

Not sure I've really taken a screenshot capture, so I end up taking a bunch, then checking the folder to make sure.

A work-around is to "After capture show...  Post-capture popup dialogue."

But a 3-5 second Balloon Tip would be the better way to go, to be sure capture was actually taken.

What might be the best way of typing a note on the screen before taking a screenshot with Screenshot Captor?

Sometimes I'd like to 'annotate' what and why I'm taking the screenshot.  Would be super to have a small movable note to that effect.  I'd prefer a white rectangular background.  Minimalist.  Editable.  Adjustable-sized font.  Closely cropped to the text.

Chris, message following window close always seems to come up, regardless of settings.

I'd rather message NOT come up, if possible.  Just do it.


@everyone else

Guys and gals, let's wrap this one up.  Anything more we can do?

If limited to less than 2 GB to be moved, probably best to use highend01 method, one-double-click.  Easy peasy.

If more than 2 GB, 4wd has a terrific approach, just requiring a few more steps.

@4wd, nicely done, indeed.  However, the example given is not so complicated, bear in mind.

Interesting that your suggestion, and of @highend01, is regex.  Pattern matching.  All 'intermediate' items must be matched.

Not exactly a through -- ordinal -- approach.

Using the usual Explorer route -- highlighting the first, shift-highlighting the last -- seemingly would be.  No command-line equivalent.

Post New Requests Here / Select Range of Files Via Batch File
« on: April 07, 2019, 02:44 AM »
Consider the following files within a folder:


Via batch file how can one select a range of files, say to be moved?


Move 03.txt through 07.txt from folder A to folder B.

Such a simple thing.  And yet....

Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.

I just thought of another question....

@everyone else

Okay, here is where we now stand:  As pointed out in the url above, advice #2 is to use "another language."

That seems clear enough (especially bolded).

Who else would like to take the next step?

So much fun that we all should do it.

What say, gang??

(grumble, grumble, grumble....)

Well, @highend01, that's some amazing stuff.  Thank you!

Basically works as asked for, as a one double-click trick.  Files up to a certain total-size limit get moved to the new location.

One issue did come up, though.  Via this approach there appears to be an inherent upper limit.  At 2 GB.  No matter how high the user inputs their own upper limit, Windows stops short.

Hmmm.  Any idea why?

I suppose user (me) can come back for seconds, and thirds.  I.e., run the batch file multiple times.


4wd, works as advertised.  Very slick.  Thank you!

Let's see if highend01 can code it into a batch file, for single double-click.

Still wondering if that's possible.


Agree that native Explorer begs for enhancements.  I've tried to do that with whatever third-party upgrades I could find.

Another alternative file manager, though, is definitely something to consider.

Regarding the present challenge, one double-click seems super appealing, if highend01 could pull off the wizardry.  Like, wow!

I'll try 4wd's offering.  Looks promising.

Exactly, highend01.  Just count the total size, if possible, and stop the process before reaching the user-inputed limit.

Don't mean to put the burden on you.  But you certainly aced the last similar request.

I've come across programs for filling up DVDs and CDs with music files.  As I recall, the programs will pick and choose from a set of files, and put as much as possible onto the disk.  Summing total size.

In the present case I just want to start from -- actually, 0001_xyz.mp4.  Then 0002_xyz.mp4.  And on and on until the set total size.  I append the numbers -- serialize -- to all the .mp4 files, to make playing easier (Amazon firestick, using MX Player on the tv, plays in the order of filename, thus the numbers).

So excited with the last request that I'm making another sort-of-similar request.

To fill up a USB thumb drive with various YouTube downloaded videos, I use Explorer, detail view, select the first.... down... down...

...and Shift-select the last.  So as to get the total size I want to send to the thumb drive.

Then I drag these files over to the thumb drive.

I'm wondering if there could be a batch file that can help out with the process.

Type into the batch file:

-- Source
-- Destination
-- Total 'upper limit' amount of files desired to be transferred (will end up approximate, of course)

'Order' of files moved, which first, should be by 'filename' order.  (I think that's Windows' default, but not sure.)

Double-click.  Presto.

Source:  d:\video\
Destination:  h:\
Amount of files to transfer:  50 Gb.

Move the files.
Order of move by filename.

Wondering if this is readily doable through batch file (or powershell).

(My hunch is there would have to be a running sum of sizes sent to some cache.  Keep going until....  A batch file to simply move files is easy enough.  The trick here is the total size wanted.)

Thoughts appreciated.
