Hi,

I used to use File Commander (FC) for Windows, a plain, text-based Commander. At my new job, Total Commander (TC) is the employer's choice of shell, so I'm learning TC now.

File Commander had some very nice features that I miss in TC (since TC is pretty powerful, and highly customisable, chances are I just haven't found them yet). Could you please help me?

#1: recall search results. In FC, the Alt-F7 search *automatically* saved results of the last search. I only had to press Alt+Shift+F7 to bring them up again. I see I can save search results in TC, but that requires extra clicks / key presses, or I can populate a panel with the results, but I don't like either as much as the instant recall feature of FC. Is there a way to pop up the search window already populated with the results of the last executed search?

#2: operations on the search result list. File Commander allows one to view, edit or delete files directly from the results screen (deleting a file removes it from the file system as well as the result list). As far as I see, in TC there's only View and Go To (the latter of which closes the result list, causing me major headaches because of #1).

#3: Alt-F7 remembers things such as file name and text, but does NOT remember the state of checkboxes. I think it is logical to restore search options, just like it the file file name (the text *is* remembered, only the state of the checkbox is not). Is there an option hidden somewhere to restore those options?

TIA,
Kofa

Hello kofa, welcome to the forum !

Quote:

To do it in TC just do the same as usual, press "Feed to listbox".
The files are displayed at the TC panel and you can:
View by pressing F3
Edit with F4
Delete with "Del" or F8

Quote:
Go To (the latter of which closes the result list, causing me major headaches because of #1)


If the list is on the right panel, press "Ctrl-Cursor Left" on a file => the related directory is displayed at the left panel.
(on the left panel use "Ctrl-Cursor Right" )

On the Search dialog (Alt-f7) there is a "Load/Save" Tab where you can ... guess what ? Wink

Thanks for the replies. So more or less all I want to do is possible, even if in a somewhat clumsier manner than in FC. OK, I'll have to live with that, I guess there are a number of things where TC is better than FC.

I like companies like that.
At the company where i work, i cannot persuade even the sysadmin to use the TC instead of explorer.

Hello! I've asked my good friend Google Smile, without any luck, so I feel free to ask you:

Is there [or will there be] any possibility to save search result [a] in form of a folder which contains links/shortcuts of searched files or [b] in a form of txt file which contains names of searched files?

I would find this as a very useful tool [especially in b case], and I hope many other would to.

Best, Ivana

Arrow Search <Alt+F7>..
Arrow When the results are displayed, just press <Ctrl+C> (the find files dialog flashes once)
Arrow Paste <Ctrl+V> the result into your preferred editor.

Regards
Holger

Install the pseudo packer plugin "DiskDirExtended" from:
http://totalcmd.net/plugring/diskdir_extended.html

Make your search
Feed the results to the List box
Ctrl-A to mark all files in the list
Invoke the Pseudo packer plugin "DiskDirExtended"
This will produce a file which can later be opened by the same plugin
and the entries can be clicked.

That's a pretty solution, but if I have a huge list ex. 300000 match, then not the best way to export list.
Oh, I forgot to tell, the search goes into archives too. So I can't feed to listbox...

gykulifai: This should also work with a huge list.
Be aware, that no program other than TC is able to use the notation of matches in archives such as "e:\archive.zip/File.PDF" !
