MC fully take over win explorer
« on: August 11, 2016, 18:08:18 »
Dear Forum members,

Is it possible to have MC as 'standard' explorer?
(I mean a full take over, so that win explorer is NOT being used at all)
If so

How to?

No, it is not officially supported. But it is possible with a registry hack that somebody created and if found here.,936.msg2823.html#msg2823

It is an unsupported use case.

And it is not recommended, because some things is Windows might work worse.
Because some windows features require the Explorer Shell. and MC is not built on top of the Windows Shell, So some Features might work bad.
