• Date Format

Format of how the Created, Content, Accessed, Backed-up and Added fields are displayed.

Short 3/10/17, 12:36 AM

Medium 3/10/2017 at 12:36:27 AM

Long 3 October 2017 at 12:36:27 AM GMT

Full Tuesday, 3 October 2017 at 12:36:27 AM Greenwich Mean Time

For custom format, if the format is a single date type (such as month or minute) and no other verbatim characters are present, the column will be sorted

by the value displayed, not the actual date/time.

For example, if you set the date format as ‘MM’, the column sorting will be based on the month numeric value, not it’s true date.

See for full list.

‘dd/MM/yy-hh:mm:ss’ is the default if nothing is entered.


Presents a list of applications which can open all the selected item.

Note: the list will only list applications which can open all the selected items (excluding directories)

Bug: Applications are technically directories. They will not launch.

Instead of printing the table as is (which can be very big), you enter what fields you wish to print. Separated by a tab or space.

If line number (#) is present, it is always the first item, regardless of where it is in the formatter.

Each field must be followed by either ‘,’ or ‘;’ or nothing will print. The last field does not require this.

Example : N:8;#;DC:2



Gather all items of the root directory up to set depth.

Depending on depth, this can take a while.

A count of items collected will be displayed as it is gathered.

Stop directory refresh.

The View will display the number of items at the stop action.


How far down the root’s subdirectories you wish to go.
