Clipboard Help+Spell / not starting minimized
« on: February 06, 2006, 09:19 PM »
Hey mouser,

I'm using the new version of CH+S and have checked the boxes for it to start with windows and to start minimized.

However whenever I start windows CH+S starts but it starts un-minimized, also when I view the options both the start with windows and start minimized boxes are unchecked.

Any ideas what the problem could be???

#1 Thanks for the information
#2 cool
#3 again, cool
#4 it's weird, after I restarted sc all the context options appeared on the right click menu, unlike before when I posted the question only a few of the context options would appear. It's all good now though, it would/could be useful if it was possible to upload a screenshot directly after capture, a couple of less clicks but it's no big worry.

I have just added sc to the exclusions list for windowblinds so it's not a real bit deal, it's just I did a search and didn't find any topics concerning windowblinds and sc.


While using sc with certain windowsblinds skins I have noticed the following problems.

The file menu at the top is seethrough, and also the buttons down the right hand side.

This only happens with a few skins so I'm not 100% sure if there is actually anything you can do to rectify the problem.


Some of these have probably been asked before but it doesn't hurt to ask again.

1. Have a menu option to backup both the licence key and preferences to separate files.  I'm constantly reinstalling windows and it's a bit of a pain to reconfigure sc and get my key. It would be much easier just to be able to drop two files into the directory and vola, jobs done.

2. In the templates section it would be good if there was a part of the windows which shows what the formatting of the filename is going to look like, it would automatically update whenever you changed the formatting.

3. Again in the templates when the "help on fields" window is open it renders the main sc options window unusable, meaning you have got to constantly open and close it to see what you are wanting to change, could you make it so that the main sc option window would let you type in it so yo don't have to constantly open/close the help window??

4. I'm sure this one has been asked before but are there any plans to implement anything like ShellUploader into sc??

Here are the extensions I have installed.

General Software Discussion / Re: Lock a folder down?
« on: November 03, 2005, 11:39 PM »
I think I have found what you are after, it doesn't work quite like what you are after, you have to select lock/unlock from the contect menu but all it does is lock the folder.

You can find it here

Personally I would do a fresh install of windows and set it up the way you want then create an image of it. The only problem with this method is if you change your mobo  or any major peice of hardware then the image will not work correctly.

AFAIK bartPE is only a rescue disk type thing, you can't actually use it for much. It's always a good thing to have around though (which reminds me I must try and make one sometime).

You can create a disk image which will install almost anything, there is an excellent guide to it which can be found here and also try looking in the forums here

Checkout Control Panel > System > Advanced Tab > Environment Variables (button)  and look in the list of system variables at the bottom.

(THis is for windows XP but there are similar things in other windows versions but may have different tab/button names)
Ah cool, that makes more sense now.

Here's what I did, I renamed Cmd.exe to cmd.bak and Console.exe to cmd.exe. Then I set the ComSpec environment variable to C:\Windows\System32\cmd.bak. After that, I coped the files the Console.exe requires to C:\Windows\System32.
Have you actually replaced cmd with console? What do you mean by setting the ComSpec environment?

I use console as a frontend for cmd if I need to do any work in it.

What I'm looking for is if anyone knows of any way of catching any cmd windows which try to open (like if I run a batch file or a program opens one up) and open console up instead.

I'm not sure if this is the right scetion for this but I'll post it here anyway.

Count me in, at the moment I'm paying $10 a month for some space on (1000Mb space, 25Gb bandwidth a month) and all I use it for are a few avatars and sigs for forums and if I need to transfer a file to one of my friends :)

Find And Run Robot / Re: show control panel
« on: October 18, 2005, 07:34 AM »
Don't know if it will work (haven't tired it yet) but how about adding a small folder and include it in the search folders with shortcuts to the control panel items you are interested in?
:o It's always the simple idea's which are the best. You are a genius  :Thmbsup:

Find And Run Robot / show control panel
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:29 PM »
Is it possible to make the items from the control panel show up?

If it isn't would it be something that would be considered for a future update?

Find And Run Robot / Re: v1.07.20 beta
« on: October 11, 2005, 12:13 AM »
nice update, can't wait for v2 to arrive :)

Hi everyone, first off I would just like to say I wish I had found this site earlier. There are lots of very useful programs here. Keep up the good work.

OK now that the sucking up is done with here are my ideas starting from the easiest to hardest (I think)

Print notes from opera
Opera lacks the ability to print it's notes, I was thinking of a small exe program which would receive copied text and pass it to the printer.

Opera history
The way opera displays the browsing history isn't very nice to look at or very customizable. What I was thinking of was something which could read the history file for opera (a file called global.dat) and parse (is that the right term?) the contents of it to html so that it can be displayed in the sidepanel of opera. Some of you may be thinking that opera can already do this if I type in opera:history into the address bar and save the page as a panel.

The beauty of my idea is that it would allow more ways of displaying the history, as it stands opera can only display the history 4 ways, by name, by address, by visited (date?) and by popularity. These are all displayed in one long list.

What I would like to see would be to somehow have collapsible "folders" which act in the same way that the history in IE and firefox work. Also an option to specify a css file would be nice for the people who would like to style the history the way they want.
