unless you disabled it,
just start typing and what you type ends up in the command line field..and if you type a path there.. and press return.. The panel in focus will go to there.

Ctrl+E will move focus to the Path field in active panel. and you can changed path there too

Thats very strange. I never seen that.

MC will restore the file if they are missing when starting.
But there is not other function in MC that will revert them.

I guess that it is the first time you do a copy.
Because the first time it will check devices and what type they are to check what Read/write statergy to use.

This is new behaviour, MC did not do this before, also explorer and others have no delay.:( :-[ :(
No it is not new.. it has always done this.
Windows give a list of available devices to MC, Problem is that if some of them are not fully connected.. MC is not notified of that.
So when MC tries to get information, Windows will try to connect.. and try and try and try.. until it gives up and returns back the control to MC.
Windows Explorer is using the Windows shell. and it also does this. BUT it is happening in the background.

Why do you have this unconnected devices. what are they ?  Network devices does cant be accessed ?

And as during startup. If you got devices that MC see as available. but are not.. Then MC will hang a while until windows timeout the operation.

in Core Settings > FileSystem > Tweak
You can select devices to hide. Devices here will not be checked at startup. However I do think they are check the first time you do a copy..

I have change nothing... but I have no right panel... I really like Multicommander, but with these problems popping up, I might have to switch to a different app
You just double click on the tab area or right click to there to open a new tab.

Never seen the one panel just disappear..   Maybe something is corrupted with the autostart data, Ctrl+L and you see the logwindow. and there might be more information there.

Support and Feedback / Re: How to change the tab color?
« on: February 27, 2023, 19:25:29 »

The current tab color in my setup is so faint when the tab is not active, I cant read what it says. Please see the image. Is there a way to change the BG and the text color for those?

And I would also recommend to check the "Solid color" option in the color settings.

Great, nice work. Looks quite good. Small glitch on main page in Portrait modus on tablet. See picture...

The webpage it is optimized for desktop.. I will not spend to much time fixing it for smaller screen. I hate messing with CSS. it is frustrating. I'm no Web frontend expert so to much time is required for me to fix that.

If you want to contribute to the documentation it is available on GitHub at

The Webpage is now rebuilt. , It should look almost the same.

Before it was running using a CMS system called Drupal,  But using a CMS system like that was overkill for a simple page like that.
so now it is way simpler. And also easier for me to maintain and update and it also support HTTPS now.

I tried to keep the same layout and style. But there are some changes.
If you find any issues please report it.

The documentation page of the website is now moved to static pages so they will go up on GitHub ( so it will be easier to update and to accept contributions to the documentation, Some parts of the documentation is missing and some parts are not 100% correct anymore :) I my time is limited.

« on: February 22, 2023, 15:41:33 »
I cannot reproduce it and the error is very strange.
The command in the Menu and Toolbar is connected to the same action. so that one work and one does not is very strange.

Never seen that happen. And I don't understand how it can happen on your machine / setup.
Might be some other program running that comes into conflict with MC.. Like some program that hook it self into other processes or something like that. Hard to say

Is it only the buttons that does not work ?
Do the Pack/Unpack in the Menu ( File > Pack files / File > Unpack Files ) work ?
DO the short cut keys work ?

Is it only the Pack/Unpack button in the toolbar that does not work or is it all the buttons there ?

It should expand even if you just click on it in the tree.
Unless you disabled that option in Explorer Panel settings. Under the "Folder tree" section

SDK / Re: SDK outdated
« on: February 11, 2023, 14:19:55 »

« on: February 10, 2023, 17:36:04 »
You mean from the file properties windows that you get if you select "properties" from the shell context menu (popup menu) ?
That is from Windows. MC have no control over that.  MC just tell Windows to shown the properties Windows for that file.

That are not user config files.. that are the settings template files that are used depending on what quick settings you select.

Type ":goconfig" in the command line field and it will take you to the user config folder (or Help > Go To > Config Folder)

What should work..  If you select Windows Explorer styled seup at first startup it should have configured that for you

Is the CustomKeymappings.xml file in config updated when you save keys ?

Right click on the ".." folder and you get the context menu for the current location

or you can enable in Explorer Panel settings. under "Mouse Configuration" tab there is a "mouse action option" for showing context menu.
There you can enable that the context menu for parent (current location)  should be shown if click was on blank(empty) area of the row.. (like righthclick was outside of the filename text)

I dont know what special device Synology is, Dont have one.. is it not a normal network attached drive ? Do they install some special software (drivers) for handling that ?

Well you can publish preconfigured configuration that you setup your self to

Or you can publish a special file that make MC read all configuration for other folders

If you want to change the hotkey go to

Configuration > Keyboard customization

Then select module "Explorer Panel" and Category "Module specific commands"
Go down to "Flat filesystem view" and reassign that key to some things that fits you need better and that are not used by something else

Never seen that happen.

Might be that you accidently written something in the dialog so it ended up in some sub/parent folder..
Depends on how you started the copy operation. there are multiple way to do that in mc.

All file operation are logged in fileoperation log (unless you turned that off)
type ":golog" in command line field. and look in the *-FileOperations.log that handled the copy and you see where the files was written to

If you hold shift while click you select an range from where you previous focus are until where you clicked
Holding ctrl and you select separate items.

And if you have commander style setup you just toggle selection right mouse button.. And you can configure how to select a lot in settings.

You should be able to match everything inside the from the [ to the end using RegEx

Core Settings > FileSystem Tab
Under Tweaking at the bottom there is a setting named
"Auto refresh file list when detecting external changes" 

Set this to "No auto refresh"

You can also turn of the settings "Refresh tabs when application focus is returned to mc" that is located 2 steps up.

and if you just want to "unwatch a folder" from the folder change monitoring system.. you can use the command
list all   ":FolderMonitor list"
Remove ":FolderMonitor remove <folder>"
