Yes this is possible with the small Tool AutoSizer. This very useful Program works very well in Win 10 64 bit.

If you mean split size, check Core Settings->Layout->Application layout->Panel Tab->Remember split size between restarts

If you simply want to have 75:25 panels ratio at MC start, then one of the ways is to create user defined command and pass it as command line param to MC executable.
1. Go to menu Configuration > User defined commands
2. Add new command and name it e.g. "set panels"
3. Change Command type to "Internal commands", Module to "Multicommander (base)", Command to "75 / 25"
4. Save changes.
5. Create shortcut to MC and add command line parameter '-AutoRun="set panels"' (command name must be enclosed in double quotation marks)

If you want a panel to be automatically resized to 75 after activation, then it's probably not possible.

P.S. Some time ago I've got an idea of "events" like OnTabCreate, OnLeaveTab etc. So each event would allow to execute user command. But then I realized that most likely it would cause much pain with almost no gain for Mathias to implement this.

Thank you for your answers.
I meant of course within the MC, the windows for the file display.
So that the active window is always at 75.

There would certainly be a event handler (as in VB) for needed.

But even if it does not work: I'm totally excited about the MC and he has mutated within a few days to the control center ... ;-)

Many Thanks!

Ah, sorry i was wrong. This what you mean with "active window" is called "Source Panel". You want that the Source-Panel width should be always 75%  and the Target Panel width 25%. And i think, like Jungle said, it´s probably not possible. But if you need more width in the Source Panel, just use Ctrl+ F11 for 100% and Ctrl+ F11 (full pane width ) again to get back to the previous split size.

May use a english version to know how the features called.

Save your Tab sessions just in such a way that the source panel always at the left side, then can you maybe working with a permanent split size of 75:25.

Or do you mean that as soo and you change what panel is active that windows should resize to 75% in size ?

if so.. that is not really support.  It would result in a very "jumpy" UI.
