« on: July 12, 2017, 17:50:04 »
MultiCommander 7.3
File search bug found

Left Panel Active
Extensions->File Search
Enter something to look for that isn't going to be found
select a look in directory (Path from tabs)
Press Start
Search returns no results (as expected) however the following
input boxes are greyed out and unable to be accessed
   a. Look for
   b. Look in
   c. Exclude Filter
   d. File content

Pressing close/hide minimizes the window and restores it but
input boxes are still greyed out
Pressing start multiple times eventually unlocks the input boxes
or you can press clear all , then start and imput boxes are restored.

Script / Script to launch portable programs in portable mode.
« on: June 26, 2017, 17:31:41 »
Here is a simple script to use in your buttons to launch portable programs from the portable version of multicommander.

NOTE: Multicommander is located on

Synwrite is located on

Using this script simply import into the button editor and change the string associated with $runProg

@var $runProg;
@var $runpg;

$runProg = "SynWrite\Syn.exe";

$runpg = StrSub(GetTagValue("${mcinstallpath}"),0,16);
$runpg = $runpg + $runProg;
MC.Run CMD="{$runpg}"

If the application your using is on another path but the same drive as multicommander portable, change the code
as shown below

Multicommander is on F:\multicommander\multicommander.exe
Synwrite is on f:\progs\synwrite\syn.exe

@var $runProg;
@var $runpg;

$runProg = "progs\SynWrite\Syn.exe";

$runpg = StrSub(GetTagValue("${mcinstallpath}"),0,3);
$runpg = $runpg + $runProg;
MC.Run CMD="{$runpg}"

Change the 3rd line of the script and the 4th line.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / multi tags addition
« on: June 22, 2017, 22:52:42 »
Would it be possible to add another multi-tag
This would return the drive multicommander is on. On the button editor that would mean


Either that or add an R button when using the execute type for a button in the button editor.

Is it possible to have a way to sort directories different then files.
i.e. sort directores by a-z and files by date?


Support and Feedback / ctrl+shift Button Definition
« on: October 08, 2012, 20:13:03 »
I can change the buttons with the editor, regular, shift, ctrl and shift+ctrl.  However
any buttons created that use both shift + ctrl are not saved.
Am I missing something? Is there a special way to save buttons when you use the shift + ctrl modifier?
I spent over an hour configuring the buttons thinking to use the shift + ctrl button group as quick launch
buttons to get rid of some of the icons on my desktop.  They work fine...until you quit the program and re-start it, then they are gone.

Any clues or is this a bug?
