Xenon Feature Requests

Hey everybody.

I'm just finishing up what I hope will be the last beta of Xenon. I'm currently waiting for some word from NeoRame about the icons I sent to him (for Hover/Disabled states).

I was wondering what features everybody wants that are not implemented in the latest beta.

Fire away.

Great

And I TOTALLY suggest John looks into adding this to the Applications here. Umm, feel absolutely free to say no to these, I'm just 'firin' away'.

  • A customizable toolbar, like Explorers, or at least option for large or small toolbar icons
  • Fix issue where directory flickers when loading
  • Some more info into the properties windows
  • Right click for new files and folders from context menu
  • Maybe a bit better way to organize the formats in the file association editor
  • Maybe a dual pane option, maybe not
  • Option to hide '..' if there isn't one
  • Tile View. Biggrin I LOVE Tile View

That's all I got. The only one I REALLY want is the tile view. Smile

The rest is SOOOO AWESOME. Biggrin

Adding those would make it

Adding those would make it the ultimate open source explorer lol. Fixing the flickering would be good, and updating the context menu and properties windows.

The rest may be better left for version 2 Smile

What things were you

What things were you thinking of for the properties window? Also for the assoc editor what exactly do you mean by organize?

Sorry,

I know I wasn't clear, I was in a rush last night.

For the properties window, have it get more physical information of the file, like whatever's in it, version, creation dates, size, all that. I'd think there'd be a way with AutoIt to get the physical properties of a file, no idea though.

As for the assoc. editor, don't get me wrong it's great, it's just if you have a lot file assocs., it's a long list to scroll, but personally I have no better ideas, so maybe ignore that for now.

Ummm...

A searchbar would be nice (does not have to be live) for quicker access.

Just a few ones

Just a few ones:

  • Option for having text under icons (or selective text too) on toolbar.
  • Options Window (maybe when there are enough customizable options).
  • (Hard One, and you should probably ignore it) Auto Update (like the Firefox one)
  • Option for showing/hiding the toolbar/navbar/".." folder.
  • EDIT: Also tabs support?

That's all I have to suggest (Oh! And also support for Linux/Wine!!!) (you probably hate me for saying this so many times Biggrin ).

Blue is everything.

Tabs

That's an awesome feature. Explorer windows ALWAYS clutter my desktop, tabs is AWESOME. Smile

OMG

I absolutely love it!

However, I don't like the taskbar. Could you space out the icons a little (maybe make them bigger). They are too cramped together for me.

(Keep in mind, Since I'm so used the WinExplorer, the more it looks like WinExplorer, the easier it is for me to use.)

Also, can you make it show my drive upon startup? (instead of the root of the C:\ drive)

Thanks!!!
