Shell Integration Settings

Shell integration settings control how FileLocator Pro integrates into the Window shell.

 

ShellIntegration

 

Associate with FileLocator Pro  file types

Associates FileLocator Pro with the FileLocator Pro files types:

- SRF  the default extension for FileLocator Pro's saved result file.

- FLSX the default extensions for FileLocator Pro's saved session file.

- FLWX the default extensions for FileLocator Pro's workspace file.

 

 

When set double-clicking on a file of any of those file types will launch FileLocator Pro opening the specified file.

 

Add to a Folder's context menu

Adds FileLocator Pro to the context menu of folders and drives. This provides a convenient way to launch FileLocator Pro for a given folder through right-clicking on the folder and selecting 'FileLocator Pro...' from the context menu.

 

Add to a File's context menu

Adds FileLocator Pro to the context menu of all files. This provides a convenient way to use FileLocator Pro to search a limited selection of files through right-clicking on a selection of files, and selecting 'FileLocator Pro...' from the context menu.

 

Replace default Explorer Search

Launches FileLocator Pro, instead of Windows Search, when Ctrl+F or F3 is pressed in Windows Explorer.

 

Enable HotKey launch

Enables launching of FileLocator Pro using the key combination WinKey+Alt+F or WinKey+Alt+F3.

 

Note: Hotkey support in enabled through the use of a small light weight application called FLProHotKey that is added to the system start-up list.

 

UAC Note: Since changing shell settings requires administrative privileges FileLocator Pro launches a separate application, FLProShellAdmin.exe, to actually make the shell changes. FLProShellAdmin.exe requires privilege escalation and therefore displays a UAC escalation request if UAC is enabled.
