You'll have easy-to-use buttons added right to your application's file dialogs, making these functions available with just one click:
Delete file -- how many times have you started to open a file, and noticed some junk files that you don't need anymore?
Copy file -- make a copy before starting to work on a new file.
Move file -- move a file to another folder, even on another drive.
Rename file -- useful for making a backup before saving.
Make Dir -- makes organizing new files easy, right when you're saving!
Find files -- powerful search utility lets you search for the file you want to open.
Powerful training function allows File-Ex to be used in applications that don't use the "common" file or browse dialogs.
"Look In" and "File Type" drop-down lists are lengthened to minimize the need to scroll.
An information bar shows the selected file's size, date, time, and attributes. If no file is selected, it shows the full path of the current folder, and free disk space.
Drop-down lists with file and folder favorites and history let you select any of the last 100 files or folders you've used in each application (plus the last 100 used by any application), or any of 100 favorite files/folders, just by clicking!
Optionally default to the "Details" view, and it can remember the column widths to help avoid chopped-off names.
Optionally use the same size and/or position for every file dialog
Automatically start from the last folder used in each application, even when the application doesn't remember on its own.
Optionally force the dialog to open in a selected folder (separate for each application).
Define your own file type lists for any application.
Have any 16-bit application use the new explorer-style dialog and long file names. (Windows NT4/2000/XP only.)
Selectively disable File-Ex features for any application or dialog if needed.
Full control of Favorites lists, both global and specific to each application
Recent file/folder lists can be edited, cleaned, and orphaned entries automatically deleted
