If you select files before viewing them, then all selected files will be sent to the viewer and you can move to next/prev with space/backspace

I Know. The thing is this is actully support and not support.

This is support if you start the file operation from script. Right now there is no UI for it. But it is planned. But other things have had priority so this have been pushed back a bit

Well, the filesystem does not really allow files to be totally hidden. Everything is controlled by permissions.
If you really want to hide you have to use TrueCrypt(VeraCrypt) then you can have a encrypted volume or file with embedded filesystem

MC is not the correct place for doing something like that. This is something that need to be hook into the core of the OS. like FileSystem drivers and such like TC/VC do.
Or file with an Embeded filesystem with encryption like TC/VC also support is the easiest way. I use that my self and find that to be quite good.
You double click the image file to mount it.. enter password in VC and then it is mounted.

I have searched in where I guessesd you might mean C:\Program Files\MultiCommander (x64)\Config\ and i can't find a ColumnSets.xml
(attaching screenshot, also with version number)
That is weird because obviously the settings exist (second screenshot attached)
And as I was saying I have managed to get my iXaarii profile have what i want, I can even set it as default which seems to apply it to both side... it just doesn't remember it on restart.
Personal config is not stored in program files folder.. that folder is not writeable for program data.
As AlanJB say..  check under user profile folder
or type ":goconfig" in the commandline field inside MC. it will take you to the config folder

If you restart MC the thumbnail are back ?
MC get the thumbnails from Windows. Not sure why they should go blank.. I have not seen that.  It can be that windows cleared out the thumbnail becuse you did changes to styles in Windows.
Is it always over night ? Do the computer go to sleep ?

You customize column two ways
From the customize column dialog.  If you want to always have other columns you need to modify the  [Default]  column profile,  Change to [Default] in customize columns. Add column. press save changes.. close and restart and you now have the new column

But you can also add column , resize column and then select "save current layout as default" from the popup menu when right clicking on the header.  Then that layout will be the default layout

"AutoSize columns" option should be on if you want the last column to use all the available space on the row. (Most of the time you want that.)

If they settings are not saved.. Makesure the config file ColumnSets.xml is rewritten when saving and make sure it is not write protected

Well not always,, depends on if you change focus during the copy operation.
But however it is a bug in Windows  what come with the 1809 Update, Something have change in windows so it put back the wrong window in the window stack.
I'm looking into workaround because I do not believe MS will fix it soon. However it require a bit of a redesign since right now the progress UI is on its own thread.

No sorry,  it currently only does matching on the name, not the complete path.

I have no idea why they are blank for you.  It should work.
MC asks windows about those icons so why windows is returning blank icons to MC is strange.

When going over to thumbnail view, it will fetch all the thumbnails in the background.. (actually windows will fetch them  MC just asks windows for them)
However getting lots of thumbnail require lots of resources.. And specially over network it will be slow

You can in core settings under filesystem. there is a Thumbnail system section..  you can change number of thread to use to 1 and change quality to Average or Bad

Disable it.
Make sure that Modules.xml has enable="N" for FS-ZIP

Icons are a slow process to fetch, so they are cached because they almost never change.

Type ":cic" in the command line field to clear the icon cache.

in ExplorerPanel settings > Mouse Configuration   
Under Path Field you can configure what mouse action to what action
BUT I'm I don't think middle button is supported

Yes Something have changed in Windows 10 1809 to make this happens.

I believe it to be a bug. Or MS have change how the rules on how Windows decide on what window to activate,
I reported the bug, But if Microsoft fix it is another issue. I'm waiting a while before wasting time to look for a workaround.

What happens in MC is because the progress windows for file operation is shown from its one background thread. (so that the main UI is not blocked).
So I'm looking for more programs that do this that also suffers from the change in Windows. so they can be reported to the Windows Team so they might fix the issue.
So if you see this issue in other apps please let me know.

So you have configured it to use PASV mode ?
Maybe the site is not using port 21 for PASV file transfers ?

It times out when trying to connect so it can start the transfer because nothing accepts the connection

Eh ?

If you are doing FTP check the FTP log for what commands are sent or error messages..
Might be that the something is not configured correct. FTP is picky about PASV / PORT configuration

Actually I think was able to trigger it sometimes in Win10 1809, but not in 1803,  ( I Think...)  ,   This must be a bug in Windows

Hmm I have not seen that happen. But I got a faint memory of a similar issue that was fixed by updating graphic drivers..

All file operation are happening in the background in its own thread.. so the main app is not locked. But windows should be able to active MC when windows is closed. But if you move away and are doing other work in other windows during the file operations. Then
It might not work. since windows have already activated another window and the OP does not allow other apps to steal focus from an app that is active. But If you do not do anything MC should be the next windows in the active window stack and it should be active.
Should like a Windows,  I'm running Win10 1809 now and I'm not able to recreate it.  It is a very strange behaviour

I think it is limited to 10 just so that dropdown lists should not be to long..
But an advanced settings to change that to a higher number might be possible to be added

1. Just drag the item so that you get the right pointing arrow on the mouse cursor, So you drop the item in the "sub folder" item.
2. Yes that is a bug. Don't delete them all.. You can edit the items manually by editing the ContextMenu.xml file in config. If you delete it the default file items will be used

I have not seen anything like that.  It is Windows that manage what windows should become active when anohter closes. MC do not do a lot of that it self since apps can't steal focus when they want.

How to you start a copy of files.. Is MC copy files using its own copy operation or does it uses Windows windows copy operation.  (Is the Windows progress dialog shown or MC one ?)
