I have recently re installed Free Commander in my WinXP and I have lost my status bar and now have a full page mouse.


If I have 55 files in a certain directory. I can see 19 of these files and if I scroll down with my mouse a view of the next 19 files pops up. If I scroll down with my mouse 1 more time then last 17 files appears.

The FC forum says this is not an FC control and I have not changed my mouse for years.

Any ideas

Thanks

I would try uninstalling and then reinstalling it.

Many problems with programs installed in Windows...are problems with file corruption in the program and can often be overcome by uninstalling/reinstalling.

What status bar...are you referring to, please?

Hi, What i can suggest u is to
Uninstall the free commander and
Change the display settings by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties and change the screen resolution according to your Monitor

Open the Control Panel and then open the Mouse Properties window. Switch to the Wheel tab and adjust the scroll speeds to preference:

To quickly open the Mouse Properties window, you can use this command from the Run... dialog in the Start Menu:
control main.cpl,@0

The full page mouse has returned on my Free Commander after I restored my system. It magically went away and now it has magically returned.

I had 2 responses to my previous posting and neither one gives me back my status bar, I don;t understand what mouse speed has to do with having a full page mouse?

Pease help


Thanks

It's not clear what, exactly, the issue you are facing is. You said "full screen mouse" but that doesn't mean anything to any of us; we're guessing. Describe exactly what is happening and what you would prefer to have happening.

Full Page Mouse

Free Commander has 2 panels. The left panel lists directories and the right panel lists files.If I have say 25 files in a certain directory then the first19 will appear. With a Full Page Mouse . if I click the scroll wheel on my mouse all 19 items disappear and files #20 to #25 appear.

In the past, a scroll bar appeared in this panel and I could use me mouse to bring up files 2 thru 20 or 3 thru 21 etc etc

I want the scroll bar back.

I hope this is clear.

Oh, I see now. It's Free Commander that's not scrolling properly, NOT the rest of Windows. Right? If that's the case then I'm not sure how to fix it.

It appears that the issue you have is application specific. I would suggest you report it as a bug on the FreeCommander forums: http://www.forum.freecommander.com/

This way you may have your problem addressed by persons who are much more familiar with the application.
