Remembering settings for a specific folder

#1 Post by Forez » 24.10.2016, 20:03

Is there a way for FreeCommander to remember display settings just for one particular folder?


What I would like to do is to have that special Computer / My Computer main "folder", to be displayed always with detailed information in form of columns. And those columns should be presented in order and width that I desire. Because my workflow bases on a list view, so every time I need to check how many space I have left on a given drive, I have to go all the way up and switch my view to detailed; and then switch back to ordinary list [or close that tab]

So if FC would remember my settings for this system folder, it would eliminate that repetitive and thus annoying task. It is the same drag I had when I was using ordinary Windows Explorer

It should be possible if you define the folder as favorite folder (you can define sorting and view for each favorite folder). It works currently such way with normal folders.
Unfortunatelly for My Computer the view will be not switched to defined view - bug.

Workaround: hit the Drive icon in the address bar.

Yes, that will pretty much get me the info that I need; and even quicker and without having to deal with going back to the folder where I started or closing the newly opened tab

Thank you very much

Another workaround is the

Tools > Setting > View > Drives > Show occupied progress space bar

option, which shows in a graphical way how much space is taken


But it is not precise and takes some precious vertical space

Move the mouse to the progress bar and you can see the hint with exact values.
