7plus v2.5.0

Midas on 6 Feb 2014

7plus adds a variety of features to Explorer including default window handling and many small tweaks for ease-of-use. Includes a copy-and-paste method for both text and images as their own file on the desktop, a de-clutter "slide" feature to push Windows out of view, navigate to your favorite folders with numpad keys, keep windows always on top, etc. Additionally, the program allows you to quickly upload files via FTP from explorer with a single hotkey.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Win 7: Administrator rights for some included features
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPLv3
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch 7plus.exe with -portable command-line switch.
What's new? New Functions:
  • Added key mappings for scientific calculators. Characters such as brackets can now be written with Numpad keys when NumLock is off
  • Added a function that allows running temporary AutoHotkey scripts (WIN + T). It requires that an AutoHotkey interpreter is installed and the .ahk extension is assigned to it
  • Added a button on the FTP profiles page to test the connection
  • Added a SendMail action for sending mails using SMTP
  • WIN + G: Run a Google search for the selected text
  • Added ${SelText} placeholder for the currently selected text
  • Run action can now use the same level of elevation as 7plus. This can be useful to execute more special commands, for example verbs like *Edit
  • Added "Enable/Disable Events" buttons on events settings page
  • Added a setting to FTP profiles to account for different file system mounting points in HTTP/FTP servers (->omit directories from target folder in URL)
  • F2 while renaming: Toggle between filename, extension and full name
  • Added "Export shortcut" button to create shortcut files that trigger events in 7plus
Bugfixes:

  • Fixed a bug that occured on x64 and caused problems in ListViews (Settings window, Image Converter)
  • Fixed a bug that prevented portable mode (command line: -portable) from working
  • Fixed a bug that prevented pasting an event properly after another event was deleted
  • Fixed invalid event files (the main event file was not affected)
  • Fixed file selection buttons in event configurations
  • Fixed an issue when the settings window was opened directly after start
  • Fixed some focusing issues on various ListView controls

this tool needs admin rights under Win7 (bug / feature / other reason ?)
Under WindowsXP everything works normally ...

@Henry: Confirmed. The entry needs editing.

I'm the author of this tool. Administrator rights are required for adding FastFolder buttons to explorer bar.

If this is undesired, it is possible to use the sources version with Autohotkey_L. This version does not require administrator rights.

@Chris

Thanks for taking the time to find this website and reply (and especially developing 7plus)!

Yes, admin right requirement is undesired. This website is The Portable Freeware Collection, a database of portable applications and a community of portable software enthustiasts. See the following Wikipedia article if you don't know what portable software is:

I personally have a copy of 7plus in my external hard drive and would like to have 7plus running all the time I'm using ANY Windows computer. But, all school computers have Windows 7 installed. And I only have admin rights on a tiny minority of them. That is, due to the requirement I'm mostly UNABLE to use 7plus.

I may test the Autohotkey_L option later. I think additional portability is worth the effort. :/

But I'd prefer if there were an option to disable all features which require admin rights, so that it'd be easier to use 7plus on limited accounts. (hint, hint) :)

It's me again, just wanted to tell you about the newest version released today, which features a program launcher like Launchy/Exekutor with many integrated plugins, among other things.

As an additional information, 7plus supports running in portable mode by running it with "-portable" command line. Admin permissions are requested on startup by default, but 7plus will also run without them and you can disable the elevation dialog in the settings, at the cost of some missing features.

V2.3.0

First, thanks Chris for such a complete piece of software. It makes a lot of thigs easier to many of us. For feedback I keep getting the "No file access to settings files in 7Plus directory. 7Plus will not be able to store settings." error when running from command line with -portable argument on version 2.5.0. (both x86 and x64). This issue appeared fixed on hithub, but seems to remain. Thanks for your time.

v2.5.0
