Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

AlwaysMouseWheel allows you to scroll (via mouse wheel) any window under the mouse, even if that window is not in the foreground. This is especially useful when referencing multiple windows without losing focus on the primary window (e.g. taking notes).

Win 10 now includes this by default, for people who have upgraded and still thought they had to use this app :)

Midas on 2017-10-27 10:17

It should be noted that DesktopOK (see https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1692) also includes similar functionality...

@Midas: agreed, added to the "similar" apps

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

freakazoid on 2013-12-02 00:03

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)

@robzuc: see 'What is "portable"' on the "about" page: https://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php Not leaving stuff behind is not "stealth" in the parlance here, and uTorrent works fine when moving from machine to machine and saves your settings.

Peter202 on 2019-05-17 14:49

After i extracted uTorrent.exe 3.5.5 with 7-zip in the extracted folder there are couple of .dll files. Are they needed? Can i delete them?

billon on 2019-05-17 20:35

@Peter202:

No, only file you need is Carrier.exe renamed to uTorrent.exe
And created settings.dat
