Beta Releases / Re: v13.3 Beta
« on: November 14, 2023, 14:18:58 »
It is just the beta.. ? or all version ? all folder location ?
It's just the beta. I always do this when I install a new program or a update. Do you never use protected folders? Do you start your MC as Admin? My Windows account is an admin account. Maybe that's the difference.

I know what network shares are.. you talked about checking symbols and stuff..
I have not seen any issues with accessing a network shares, uses it daily my self without any issue
Method A and Method B works not for me, maybe you have different settings.

Not sure I understand what you issue is.. something with network connection ?

So you only got the problem in beta. strange. absolutely nothing is changed about browsing file shares.
There is a difference in User mode and elevated to admin mode, By default they do not share mapped network drives. but that is a registry settings for windows. But I guess that is not the issue.
Browse network method is depending on how you network setup looks like. Windows got 3 different ways to do it. and they all do different things..  Looking in the log (ctrl+L) and it will output everything it finds

But you can "pin" server in the network (NET:) and they will always be shown there, It will cache it.. and you can often just access directly without scanning again

Thanks for the explanation Mathias.
Any ideas about failure to shut down properly on Win11?
No.. Should be no difference in Win11 and Win10. Have not been able to reproduce. Impossible to figure out without being able to reproduce.
Does MC create and sends crash report ? what CrashID did it receives.. Then I can manually check the crash dump.

The admin-mode don't work anymore.
Not able to reproduce that
It is just the beta.. ? or all version ? all folder location ? If its hang it is often MC waiting for a call to windows to comeback.. So then it can be anything that hook them self into Windows that causing it..

Your what ?
A "network share" is a shared resource, like a file or folder, made available over a network for access by other devices. It allows files to be shared and accessed remotely within a connected network.
The network shares are usually consolidated under the network symbol in the directory tree.
I know what network shares are.. you talked about checking symbols and stuff..
I have not seen any issues with accessing a network shares, uses it daily my self without any issue

Very nice. If you have a little more time, could you check why a new symbol of the network share is always created in the directory tree when accessing a network share?
Your what ?

Another RMB context menu issue on Win11 -
I've found that with OpenHashTab 3.0.4

RMB>properties>hashes = OK  (<Alt+enter> also works OK)
RMB>Hashes = MC CTD & Restart

Both these functions are error free in vanilla Explorer.
It's not a vital issue but maybe this error reveals sth useful about how Win11 & MC context menu relate now?
Some of 3rd party shell extension assumes that they are run from windows explorer and do stuff depending on that. They can't be fakes since they expect the Windows Explorer Window to be there or similar.

Beta Releases / Re: Strange Folder Tree
« on: November 03, 2023, 07:22:34 »
The longer MC is open, the more such links appear in the directory tree. Now, after one day, I have six copies of the virtual folders without seeing a recognizable cause. But when I access my network shares, new duplicates are created when a network resource is not reachable or is erroneously deemed not reachable.
So it is triggered not by something you do... ok then its going to be hard to figure out why. hmm might just revert back the code and remove so that those special folders are not in the tree then.. for now..

Built in backup do not just take everything in the folder.. Just the file that belong to MC. and some other things..

But I think I can add so the internal method for backup/restore can be called from script with something like

Code: [Select]
BackupConfiguration( $filename );

RestoreConfiguration( $filename );

Not if you did not do a backup of all configuration..
But Windows might have done it

If you go to

right click and from the Windows Shell Context menu you might have a option named "Restore older version" or something like that.. Name might differ depending on name Windows version
you might also do Properties and there might be a Previous Versions tab.. But that is all depending on how things are setup in Windows for how much it should keep for old versions.

it is when MC tells windows to stop monitoring some folder location,  What folder location I can't see..  but sounds that it has to do with some none normal device. Normally this call never halts operation..

What if you download the file normally ?
The URL of the beta version is only available with a new MultiUpdate. The beta content is protected. However, I downloaded V. 13.1 now from the website, and this included a new version of MultiUpdate, also V. 1.9, but not really, because this has a new creation date and it works. I installed the new beta version with it.

MultiUpdate is the same, It is just rebuilt every time when everything else is build, But it is actually the same.
Strange error.. never seen that, Might be that security software that blocks somethings.. not sure..

i was trying to download the file directly with a downloadmanager, but the dowloadmanager did'nt find the file: "The file was not found on the server."
What URL ?

Support and Feedback / Re: Create URL shortcut?
« on: October 23, 2023, 12:48:48 »
1. Open a Windows Explorer window on any folder
2. Right-click > New > Shortcut
3. In the box, type or paste a URL (for example
4. Click "Next"
5. Give it a name (for example "BBC")
6. Click "Finish"

Now you have a shortcut in that folder that when clicked will open your browser on the website.

AFAIK there is no way to do the same thing in MC.


Never heard anybody doing that before..  You can add web urls to the favorites in MC but you can also create .lnk shortcuts in MC from the context (popup) under new section. just they wil end up empty since Windows Explorers editor will not pop up.. but just do show properties on in afterwards and you can edit it

Support and Feedback / Re: Files are selected when using Drag&Drop
« on: October 22, 2023, 18:54:52 »
not sure what you want.

so don't want files to be selected when you drag them ?

Strange. I'm not able to reproduced that.. It should find as latest final or (beta) (if check for beta is enabled)

You can manage sessions via File > Tab sessions

Open desired tabs, then save this session. In menu File > Tab sessions choose Manage... you can now select this session and mark it as startup

Thank you. This is sooo hidden, I can't believe, and not intuitive. I've been using all kind of file explorers, but this one is by far most complicated to figure out.
it is not hidden since session tab are actually intended for other things.. But can be used as that too. but since you have X tabs .. it is not very easy to have a settings letting you setup exactly what you want at start for each tab.
Most often if you want something at start always you send it as parameters to the program.. and you can also do that..

You can also start MC via a shortcut and edit that shortcut an add /L=<path> /R=<path> parameters to it

« on: October 15, 2023, 10:09:01 »
Normally.. Layout and tabs and location are saved when quiting and used at next restart..

In Explorer Panel settings at the bottom under "save on exit" section.. you find what settings inside the tab should be saved

This hang is during shutdown..  It waiting for a response from windows when cleanup and shutting down

Support and Feedback / Re: Preview of webp files
« on: October 06, 2023, 07:52:19 »
What do you mean with preview, Thumbnail,,  Preview Panel, Image Viewer ?
Some of them MC is depended on what Windows support.

Try using wildcards when searching... for example


took me a while to figure that out

Hmm Tried many different way.. don't fail for me.. .strange.. I will add some more logging to the search process so for next beta.. So then you can enable debug logging and we can see what happens
