For some reason, My toolbar icons are so small compare with the 5.3.3. How to make them bigger?

My main problem with NexusFile- it is 32-bit and cannot 'see' Windows 64 shell.

I regularly have issues selecting a drive from the drop downs for each pane. On both sides the panes do nothing. It never selects a drive.

Just to clarify my previous query, deleted files goes to recycle bin but the directory/folder is lost. It does not go to the recycle bin. Why it is like that and what is mklink deleted all files/folders ?

Does anybody know where does any files or folders go after I I delete it ? As I see it does not go to the recycle bin? The version I am exploring is5.3.1.5460 :)

To stop automatic update go to tools => options => etc => uncheck "Check updates when program starts"


Before launch, create a file called "nexusfile.ini" and place it in a folder called "userdata" e.g userdata\nexusfile.ini

contents of nexusfile.ini:

Beautiful, simple and fast. I've using NexusFile instead of Windows Explorer since first release. It's the best file explorer in my opinion.

Ah, try do search "Nexus" here in

I'm not able to show a command line like FreeCommander does - and "System - Command Line" doesn't recognize the simple dir command. Maybe I'm missing some point ..

This is a great app in my opinion. The built-in archive support and uncluttered interface are two of the biggest draws for me. Highly recommended!
