Re: What "color" in Win10 (or FCXE) is used for these three items?

I have emerged victorious. Turns out an actual reboot was needed to bring in that new "scrollbar" color object. So now that I've rebooted, sure enough the scrollbar, status bar, and inactive address bar are the proper desired (and theoretically default) 200 200 200 color, i.e. very light g...

Re: What "color" in Win10 (or FCXE) is used for these three items?

I believe it is the "scrollbar" item in HKCU\Control Panel\Colors (default value 200 200 200) and HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\Colors (default value 212 208 200) which are responsible for these three items. Turns out in HKCU\Control Panel\Colors there was NO "scrollbar" item at all...

What "color" in Win10 (or FCXE) is used for these three items?

I'm building out a new Win10 PC and have not had success solving a color problem in FCXE, even though I'm using the exact set of \Settings files on both machines. I suspect the two FCXE items are colored from Win10 colors rather than from a setting in FCXE itself (unless I'm wrong). In particular, I...

834: TREE lost on non-focus panel

Don't know if this occurs for LEFT/RIGHT split-screen view, but it absolutely is happening for me with TOP/BOTTOM split-screen view. I have "one tree per panel" checked for both (a) File System tree, and (b) Favorite Items tree. Here's how to demonstrate the failure. Again, TOP/BOTTOM spit...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

I see no problem with color selection. If you use "More Colors..." button then after selection the color in the additional dialog (Windows standard dialog) you should click on selected color in the first dialog: SelectColor(2).png AHA!!! I had no idea. There's no mention of this critical ...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

I have no possibillity to check Win 7, but you have to put RGB values (138, 240, 101) in the fields on the right R=red, G=green, B=blue). You're absolutely correct. I'm misspeaking. When I casually use the term RGB I'm really referring to that custom color palette which allows setting a color using...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

(3) So, I then change the RGB values for Win7 TREE selection to match the values for Win10: 138, 240, 101. (g) Win7 TREE selection changed RGB before OK https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/3830/OetIBl.jpg (h) Win7 TREE selection after OK, close, re-launch (unchanged) https://imagizer.imageshack.c...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

Ok. I've now managed to get my Address Bar color changed by selecting the "active caption" and "inactive caption" items in the lower part of the color palette, which for some reason then resulted in my OK to apply the RGB color values to actually take effect. Previously I was doi...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

Well, I've figured out how to get the color change to "stick". But I'm certain this shouldn't be the method that was intended. Obviously the program is not doing what I think it should be doing the straightforward way. If you look at the initial color palette presented, it looks like this:...

Re: I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

But wait. That's really not the question. I don't want to have to learn all about color schemes (good as that might be), in order to use a single simple basic function that actually should be working. So, it appears I've found how to see what the RGB value is in my old INI, and the displayed color m...

I give up. Can't figure out how to change color (e.g. Address Bar)

I yield. No idea how to actually change colors, for example of the Address Bar, selected folder in the Tree, etc. Each item in Settings has a "color/font" tab, but for the life of me I don't know how to utilize what's on that dialog. And the HELP does not provide step-by-step instructions ...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

The other plus about this shell extension solution is that I can stay with my setting which does NOT produce a tab if there's only one folder open in a panel. In other words the default state is to NOT have the tab bar present and visible and taking up an additional row on the screen, but only to ha...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

You're right, the command "new folder tab" with the icon doesn't show the icon when it is added to the toolbar. This is a known bug , icon is not shown in that dialog (it's for any option), but it should appear on toolbar, as I said, try this: just double click "New folder tab" ...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

I don't understand that toolbar button issue, Ok. My bad. The font is so small at my screen resolution of 2560x1440 and I'm so tired that I've been pushing the wrong button to add the command. My eyes and brain processed the "green arrow pointing left" as the button to be pushed. But of c...

Re: Feature request: right-click menu on Address Bar offers "new folder tab"

There are more "New folder tab" items in the list, one of them has the icon, at least in the latest public beta - 830. I had used "open" in the filter box as instructed. This other "new folder tab" did not show up. I've now found it using "tab" in the filter ...
