Windows 7: QTTabBar and USB drives

That's a shame. It seems mostly stable on my system. I noticed when I messed with changing themes it would get confused for awhile. What I did was uninstall until I got done messing around with themes, then installed again. It remember settings(probably in AppData someplace.) Seems to remember my drives. Do you have it set to catch other Explorer windows? I have it set not. That may be a difference.

I believe it's the one on the Window Tab "capture new explorer processes" should be unchecked.

Just install. It asks you right then if you want to capture other explorer windows. Uncheck the box before continuing the install.

It's been working pretty well for me. I use rocket dock and click the Computer icon. Seems if that comes up with all my drives as tabs then it works correctly until I shut down. Otherwise I just have to load my Drives group. Not a big deal.

When you close explorer completely all your tabs get removed when you restart explorer ? You mentioned you can have a group start up when you start up explorer again, that didn't work for me but did it work for you ?

When you create a group. Highlight the group. Press the StartUp Button on the top right. Works for me. Only time it drops out is sometimes after a shutdown. Then I just click Groups in the Tab Bar and select the group. From then on it works until I shut down.

When you close explorer and reopen explorer, does only one tab load, or does your group load in my case only one tab loads which is libraries. To get my group tabs open I have to right click and select my group, is it suppose to work this way ? Or should it remember the tabs you had open when you close explorer ?

I did follow what you said in this thread, I can't get QTTabBar to save the group settings so they load on start up. The group is underlined in the Groups start up but it won't load the groups when I restart explorer. Thank you for your help, I tried all that I could, hopefully they fix this in a future release when and if that update comes I'll just have to load the group each time I start explorer.
