integration of totalcommander into win7 64

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Michael Kummer, Jul 21, 2010.

  1. Hi,

    for several years I use Totalcommander with XP. A right-click opened a menu
    with i.e. my virus-scanner (GData Antivirus), so I could scan a file or a
    directory.

    Now I changed my system to windows7 home professional (64bit). I installed
    Totalcommander 7.55a and GData Antivirus 2011. Everything seems to work
    fine.

    But unfortunately I could not find the right-click menu in Totalcommander.

    Any hints or ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Michael

    In the future - you might consider asking the creators/supporters of the
    product *first* before trying a general group like this. Especially if you
    pay for the software. ;-)

    http://www.ghisler.com/faq.htm

    In addition to the forums, etc they have ther e- the built-in help for
    TotalCommander has this entry when you search for "Right Click Menu":

    "Total Commander offers local menus (context menus) for several interface
    elements. All these menus can be opened through a right mouse click:

    - In the file windows you can reach the local menus also by pressing
    SHIFT+F10. If the right mouse button is used to select files, you can reach
    the right click menu by holding down the button a bit longer (about 1
    second).
    With the commands Copy and Cut the selected files can be copied/moved
    through the clipboard. You can simply choose Paste in the context menu of
    the target path.

    - On 64-bit Windows, an additional submenu "X64" is shown for files. This
    menu allows to use 64-bit shell extensions from 32-bit Total Commander! You
    can configure which shell extensions should be shown there in case of
    problems with some extensions, or to speed up the loading of the X64
    submenu.

    The FTP client also has a local menu, which allows to add specific files to
    a list for later download.

    - The button bar also contains a local menu to edit or delete single
    buttons.

    - You can get a local menu for the current path and directory by right
    clicking on the path name and the drive list/drive button, respectively. The
    F8 button has a local menu for Recycle bin."

    Just saying that the quicker support for a product usually comes from those
    who create and are supposed to support it - and if the support sucks - there
    is almost always an alternative filling the gap and you probably should
    reconsider purchasing such a product.

    Thank you very much, you are right and the X64-submenu was the solution.
