Thanks for this great minimalistic explorer alternative. I love that it's so lightweight and doesn't have all those unnecessary features.
Three small things I would love to have though are options not to use zip foldes (I use WinRAR for all), and options for setting standard folder view that never changes, and setting standard start dir that never changes (unless I want to of course).
Keep up the good work!
Block Q-Dir to open cab,zip, ... folder
TO>setting standard start dir that never changes
I am unable to stop Q-Dir (version 3.51) from opening .zip file within Q-Dir.
I have both WinRar and WinZip installed on my computer.
While using Q-Dir, when I click on any .rar file, WinRar opens itself inside WinRar; However, when I click on .zip file, the zip folder opens itself inside Q-Dir instead of WinZip.
I was wondering if there's a way for me to use Q-Dir when I click on a .zip file, WinZip would opens itself in a the WinZip window rather than inside the Q-Dir window?
I had followed what was suggested on your FAQs (http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-Q-DIR&faq=20), and the problem remained the same.

Can you import associations from the normal explorer in XP?
e.g double clicking a .zip file will open winzip.
Thank your excellent wrok in Q-dir. I uesd to replace explore for a while. I most like the function Modern-address bar (like Vista). However, while it list some directories will stop respond. In my guess, it's likely the
director contain many *.zip files and it try to list the inner files in zip files. Would you kindly to solve this issue. (disable to list *.zip files or add option)
