Win 10, Groupy 1.1 Trial
In Explorer the + - Button does nothing.
I also tried "force new window button on all groups" but I wonder: what would that be opening, if it actually did something?
I am also on Win 10 with Groupy 1.1. But my '+' button work. Maybe there is problem on installation please try to uninstall. Reinstall and reboot.
What happens if you press Ctrl + N when your explorer windows have focus?
The non groupy behaviour would be to open a new explorer window. If that is not happening then that's the root issue as to why the plus option is not working for you.
Indeed, Ctrl-N does nothing... I also have "QTTabbar" active for other options than the tabs it provides. Within QTTAbbar Ctrl-N was set to duplicate a tab. Unchecked that and now the + works
Great that solved it . Thanks for reporting back
Clicking the + button opens a new tab, but it opens C drive. It would be great if it opens whatever I option I configured in windows explorer to open when it shows a new window or at least have an option in Groupy to allow the user to specify what folder to open i.e., This PC (My Computer), Quick Access, C drive, etc.
New tab in explorer performs the exact same operation as pressing Ctrl+ N so whatever opens for that is what will open for you.
On my machine here that duplicates the current folder, so if you are getting C: are you perhaps looking at C: at the time?
QTTabBar user also here. If it helps, my Ctrl+N behaves the way Neil describes, so it's not a compatibility issue.I use Groupy to autogroup both PowerShell and the Command Prompt. Normally both open in C:\Windows\System32, so I always used my own shortcuts to have them start in my desired working directory. The + button uses the system defaults again, so I had to do some tricks to have them both start in my normal directory again using the +.
An option to set a default working directory for anything started by Groupy would not be a bad idea.EDIT: Note: I use the original QTTabBar from Quizo, not the abandoned open source fork.
