The new CustomCommand MC.Explorer.ChangeSetting can change a settings for the ExplorerPanel, But only for the active panel.
Since this is change for active panel this changes are not saved.  They are used if you temporary want to change some settings for one panel only.

MC.Explorer.ChangeSetting NAME=<SettingsName> VALUE="<New Value>" TOGGLE
NAME is the name of a settings you want to change
VALUE is the new value for that settings often it is 1 or 0 for on or off.
TOGGLE can be used instead of value and will toggle the value. If it is 1 then it will be set to 0.

Example
Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.ChangeSetting NAME="GridLinesH" VALUE="1"
Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.ChangeSetting NAME="GridLinesV" TOGGLE
Supported settings to change is
  • GridLinesV
  • GridLinesH
  • CheckBoxes
  • SelectionRectangle
  • SelectOnNavigate
  • UnselectOnSingleSelect
  • DbgSelection
  • AdjustLongNames
  • AutoSizeColumns
  • AnyKeySearch
  • SearchBox
  • SortNatural
  • SortFilesFolderSeparate
  • ReSortAfterRename
  • ResetViewFilterOnPathChange
  • RestoreViewFilterForPath
  • RemeberSelectedOnPathChange
  • TagFolders

When adding/change the Create Folder templates there are 3 type of tags that can be used  date / time and filename

":{D<dateformat>"
":{T<timeformat>"
":{F<filenametags>"


You can have multiple tags.

Example
Code: [Select]
:{Dyyyy-MM-dd}
:{Dyyyy-MM-dd} :{THH:mm}
:{Dyyyy-MM-dd} :{FFocusFileName}
:{Dyyyy-MM-dd} :{FFocusFileNameNoExt}
My Folder (:{Dyyyy-MM-dd} - :{THH:mm})
For date and time formatting is using the same formatting that are used in regional settings..

See this for how they are formatted
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd317787(v=vs.85).aspx
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd318148(v=vs.85).aspx

Default date folders names are generated from regional settings. And illegal characters are stripped/replaced.
An ISO date formated item (yyyy-MM-DD) is always added even if you do not have that date format in your language settings since that format is
often used in file/folders since that format it will automatically be sorted correct when sorted alphabetically

Also the QuickCreate popup Menu is shown when right clicking on the CreateFolder toolbar icon or if you press the hotkey CTRL+SHIFT+F7
