    Been using QTTabBar v1043 for a few days. Personally, I don' t see any differences/improvements between it and v1042 - it's working fine for me.

    I only had 1043 installed for a couple days, didn't even get a chance to check out the built-in folder analyzer tool and file attribute editor.
    I did like the addition of the Navigation Pane to Extra View Left!

    Not sure if this has a bearing on the issue but, try un-checking 'Rename ambiguous tabs automatically'

    Well, I thought that I had the problem solved, but it came back. It's a rare occurrence, so I can live with it, but I may have found it. My backup location was "C:\Users\Phil\Documents\QTTabBar Settings Backup"\ & I don't know why I put it in quotes & a backslash. When I went to Options/Misc & just navigated to the location, it came in as C:\Users\Phil\Documents\QTTabBar Settings Backup. No quotes & no backslash. I also have it set to backup automatically every 7 days, which may explain why it happened so rarely. So now that I've changed it, I'll see if I get the message again.

    Oops, yes, I neglected to mention Extra View. It was in v1042, but I don't recall using it, so the whole Extra View + Navigation Pane is new for me. I haven't really had a chance to use it much on v1043 now, but did use it just a bit.

    As far as the analyzer tool and file attribute editor, I haven't quite figured out what those are yet or even how to invoke them

    Yeah, I must have missed it too! I was in too much of a rush!

    And, now I'm back on 1038!

    Okay, so I made some progress on the new analyzer tool and file attribute editor feature.

    For demonstrating
    "(Changes in 1043)
    - Built-in folder analyzer tool and file attribute editor."


    From: QTTabBar > Options > Command Buttons
    I created two new test buttons - one for the Analyzer Tool and one for the Filer Attribute Editor and put them on my QT Toolbar.

    See screenshots below for how I created each button and the results of clicking on the button.

    I would have expected these buttons to exist already on a toolbar or menu - did I miss them?

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Thanks for testing this, Steve. I will look/play with this later. As far as I missing buttons, I don't think you missed anything. I use my own icons on the toolbar anyhow, as I find them brighter & easier to interpret than the built-in ones.

    File Explorer focus is on navigation column, rather than files


    Not sure this is caused by QTTabBar, but when I would open File Explorer (say a Downloads folder that's pinned to the taskbar or a folder that's opened with "Search Everything"), the focus used to be on the files in that folder, so that I could use the keyboard immediately to get to a file.

    All of a sudden, the focus is on the navigation column & I have to use Tab to switch the focus to the files. Is there a setting in QTTabBar that affects that?

    Thanks in advance.
