Re: How to open items directly in the list?

Re: Please help: Open++ context menu and Everything

Also 7-zip (file compression program) and Norton anti-virus are missing in some context menus through Everything (.gz files, for example). Maybe what these programs have in common is that they use dynamic context menus (with a .dll file) instead of fixed entries in the registry.

Re: Using Void to manage my music collection

The short answer is no. There is no good way of telling what changed the date of a directory entry.
