    Thank you for trying this too!
    So there must another factor on my PC why I am encountering this.
    It's a newly build computer with a clean install of Windows 10 21H2, then some personal tweaks and my most essential software installed.

    I don't think I will be putting in more time trying to see if I can find out what causes this exactly.

    I raised this because I had three different icon related issues after installing QT which made me suspect there was an larger issue concerning QT and icons.
    But 1 proved to be a dumb user error on my side, 2 was solved after reinstalling Dropbox and doing some registry tweaks, and this 3rd one is minor since I'll only use NirSoft FileTypesMan once or twice just after installing a new PC. I'll just have to remember to first do that before installing QT. (or temporarily uninstall it)

    So it's aul good man ;-)
    Fair enough. If you do eventually find the cause please post back.

    Is this thread also for regular questions about QT?
    Let me know if it isn't and I should ask elsewhere?

    I do have a question, and for now I'll post it here since this seems to be an active thread that is read by people willing and able to help:

    I am looking to configure QT to have separate and independent left vs. right panels. (like Total Commander)
    Each with their own tabs.
    Can that be done with QT?

    I tried it using 'Extra View (left)', but when I open that, the 'QT Command Bar (vertical)' closes, and I need that one.

    hmm, this is annoying, trying to create a new post, but the forum engine integrates it in a previous post as an update. Messy.

    Trying to understand what is happening exactly: after clicking [Browse] for icon, obviously an explorer window should open that enables you to navigate to a folder location/icon file.
    When NirSoft hangs after clicking [Browse], it's obviously waiting for such a window to open. But no explorer windows opens, so it hangs and keeps waiting forever.
    So without QT installed such a window opens, and with QT installed it doesn't. (for me)

    I have no clue where to look to solve this. Perhaps other installed software plays some role/interferes here (such as OpenShell, Total Commander, etc.)
    Or maybe it needs some registry edit.
    Perhaps other bright minds have some ideas?

    I'm afraid I have no idea. Indeed if you look at the screen grabs I posted you get the standard windows icon update dialogue which you can then go on to search for an icon file. I use Open Shell so it's not that. I don't use Total Commander.

    In answer to your earlier post I've never used Extra View so can't comment on how that works.

    I don't know if this will help because I don't use extra views, but QTTabBar does have grouping. That is, you can open two Explorer windows & then have a button that will allow you to open any tabs that you have predetermined. For example, I often copy Outlook.pst between two computers, so I have both Explorer windows open on my 2nd desktop (so they don't get in the way), like this:

    I also have File Types Manager (& QTTabBar 1043), but haven't had it hang. But I'm not sure what you mean by waiting for NirSoft to open an Explorer window. When I start File Types Manager, it loads all the icons on the left side. Then I can type whatever extension I want (e.g. "doc"), it gets selected, & then I can change any property, including the icon.

    Is that what you're doing?

    - presumably referring to the window opened to browse - which will not be an instance of file explorer though..

    I can't explain it more clearly than this.

    It's just that some of those 'browse' windows my look a bit like file explorer.. yet have nothing to do with the process explorer.exe. Using the term 'explorer window' is what raises the question. That's all - terminology / clarity.

    Works here.

    Could you explain the steps how to achieve that?
    I notice the left panel is not horizontally aligned with the right one. (it's lowered a bit)
    Is that intentional for your setup?
