Re: <Weird unicode characters thread issue>

https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=83614#p83614 The "u=0" parameter in those links ensure that they do not count towards the stats. I even double-checked again to make sure there isn't a bug in the code. @SYSTEM -- Thanks for the info about TPFC's "u=0" parameter. Based on abov...

Re: Bright & Low-Contrast Color Schemes

My guess is that extremely bright and low-contrast color schemes are used because they feel less scary and more welcoming to casual users. Thanks for providing such an empathetic rationale. I think it might help me bear with bright & low-contrast GUI schemes more easily, at least on a psychological...

Re: Date Reminder - New Larger Icons

There's anti-aliasing where there were sharp edges before. It would be fixable but not sure if the author is used to that type of thing. / Not that they shouldn't have AA or be resized using nearest neighbor but that it's clearly scaled without much consideration for clear pixel grid alignment. Wha...

Re: <Weird unicode characters thread issue>

At TPFC, "[markb /forums/ucp.php?mode=login" is a popular search. Really? I wouldn't have thought so. Such generic URLs can turn out to be a popular "search term" because other than text queries via the search box, it seems that TPFC's search engine is also capturing user clicks on hyperlinks & but...

Re: Date Reminder - New Larger Icons

Doesn't look like they scaled the icons well. There's anti-aliasing where there were sharp edges before. It would be fixable but not sure if the author is used to that type of thing. I think the anti-aliasing is deliberate . If the developer were to enlarge the existing icons (note: non-Modern Flat...

Re: Tablacus Explorer - RAM Use

On my system Tablacus Explorer x64 with 36 installed add-ons uses about 83 MB of RAM while with the default 13 add-ons it uses about 61 MB of RAM. At the bottom are the average RAM use ranges for Tablacus Explorer v17.1.17 (released: 17 Jan 2017)'s TE64.exe process for 3 different scenarios, each t...

Re: Tablacus Explorer (not stealth ?)

Tablacus Explorer (TE)'s software listing at TPFC indicates that it is stealth. On my Win 7 x64 , extracting & running the basic TE package with default settings , no additional add-ons & no user interaction creates & leaves behind the following items upon every run & clean exit. TE x64 leaves behin...

Re: Tablacus Explorer

I am a bit surprised that an add-on is needed for such a simple thing. I have enabled lots of add-ons and I have to compare the RAM usage with and without add-ons. I suppose Tablacus Explorer is designed based on a bare-bones, add-what-you-want concept. For instance, Its ZIP package (containing 32+...

Re: Tablacus Explorer (file preview function)

Currently, it is possible to natively preview images (eg. JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, animated GIF) in Tablacus Explorer's preview pane. May I know if it is possible to preview the contents of the following file formats in Tablacus Explorer as well ? I can't seem to find any relevant settings within the co...
