    Not going to use it, but it taught me heaps, didn't know to display the menu with ALT (yay, coz I like the new "action" menus), and therefore didn't know that there was send to/move to in the edit menu. That's great, I use it a lot.

    Really from Explorer in XP which I never used (Xplorer2 always) to win 7 with its great functionality, quick previews, good flexibility of views etc - I've hardly ever fired up Xplorer2, and since I can get 2 explorers on one of my monitors (thus dual pane) Xplorer 2 may be on its last legs for me.

    Anyway many thanx for the tutorial and the ones it links to - learnt lots again!

    Hello Superneat,

    No you do not have to download it if you do not like to. I just included the .reg to make it easy to do automatically. It's the same location as in Vista though. :)
