Long time no see! I have finally decided to use FARR as my #1 launcher. If I use it 100% of the time, you can be assured I will be an active member of this forum. I have been told I am the absolutely grandmaster of breaking things, so if there's any issues/potential improvements in FARR, I will find them
Anyways, here's a few things (running latest version)
1. (Urgent) How to do I launch apps using hotkeys? For example, I want to launch Chrome with ALT+C. There is a shortcut in the folder for Chrome, so I would like to assign it to launch using ALT+C. Oh mouser. Please o please o please tell me FARR can do this. If not, I want to beg and plead you if you could implement it somehow. It's the only thing keeping me from using your app 100% of my time. I tried reading the help, fiddling around for hours but could not figure out how to do this.
1. I know FARR launches QuickDocLauncher.exe, but when I do it independently it launches and closes and takes up 100%. There is literally no way to recover from this unless I log off or restart. Not a big deal, but I am guessing this shouldnt happen.
2. Icons are not showing in shortcuts created by UACpass. This is definitely what seems to be a deficiency in FARR, as windows and any other program sees the original icons.
Here's an pic of the problem:
EDIT: I think some explanation is in order. I created a custom shortcut using the program UACpass to run the app in TRUE (Win 7+) admin priveledges without prompting me. My UAC switch in CP is at the highest level. Here is an example of the shortcut. It points to schtasks.exe, but there is an icon associated with the shortcut. It seems FARR is trying to poll the icon from the original icon instead of the shortcut.
Here's the shortcut: C:\Windows\System32\schtasks.exe /run /tn "UAC pass\pia_manager"
3. It seems like FARR is not respecting the setting for launching folders in the 'custom app' I set (XYplorer). It does so under most cases, but not all. For example, If I type C:\test in FARR it will launch fine in XYplorer. However, if I launch a shortcut for C:\Test it will launch the folder in Windows 8.1 64bit. Is this intended?
