Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR slow searching/pauses - tips
« on: June 30, 2020, 09:11 AM »
Hello Anand, and thanks for the quick reply.

I don't see anything in that option that is related to the USB drive (see attached). Is that a new option? Perhaps I should download the beta?

Hi all. Posting on this thread as I didn't find one specific to my question, and the behavior I am seeing fits some of the reports here.

Basically I see a delay in FARR that I've determined is due to an external USB drive I have that needs time to spin up after a period of inactivity. I only use that drive for backup purposes and was hoping to find an FARR option to exclude it from searches; alas I didn't find such an option.

Are there any workarounds for this?

TIA.

Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR is on other monitor, can't see

As a workaround, it is also possible to click "ALT Space" then select "move" and use the arrow keys to move it back to a visible place!

Filipe - Thanks for the suggestion; just solved a problem for me! :)

Hi all. Hope everyone is being safe!

I changed one of my two display monitors today and since that time when I press BREAK to launch FARR I hear the audible clue that it's launched, and if I type in a known app name and hit enter it does launch that app (so I know FARR is active), but I cannot see the FARR UI. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling (thinking any setting re: last position of the FARR window would be cleared), but that did not work.

Appreciate any thoughts / solutions you might have.

TIA

Find And Run Robot / Re: Launching Windows Apps

The only reason FARR wouldn't show your new shortcuts and bat files would be if they aren't located in one of the folders that FARR searches.  You can edit that folder list in the options.
Awesome! Perfect!! That totally works for me. Thanks!

Yeah I will add this asap -- moving to top of my todo list.
Awesome. This will help keep FARR my one-stop place to launch apps.

One of the things I tried to work around this--unsuccessfully--was to create a shortcut to Skype with the hopes FARR would find it. I even set up a .BAT to run the shortcut. Neither one was found by FARR.

I would love to know why--does FARR only find registered programs? I don't think so as I do see other .BATs I've set up for different purposes.

Thanks.

Good morning.

I use FARR a lot and it has become my go-to launcher. Great work!

This morning I used it to find a .bat file using "drive" in the search textbox, and the file I was looking for came up on the list. I wanted it to be higher so I right-clicked and *believe* I went to the Add Scoring Rule for this Item option and set the score to 333. That said perhaps I did something else as that file no longer appears regardless of what I use to search for it.

Is there a way I can see:

1.) A list of items for which I changed their scoring.

2.) A list of items I set to Ignore.

I'm hoping viewing the above might help resolve this issue for me.

Thanks.

That would work nicely. Thanks!

Hi all -

I don't think I see this as an option. I usually go into the above for my screen grabs, and probably 90% of the time check off Top and Left. Is there a way to make that selection the default to save a few mouse clicks each time?

Thanks.
