# Picture Buttons without Text

Picture Buttons

  • Some interfaces need more buttons, in order to keep the UI clean, WinExt removed the text from them.
  • If you just started using WinExt, you may not know the purpose of a few buttons.
  • Fortunately, all these buttons have the tooltips, just move your mouse on them, you will know the meaning and shortcut keys.
  • In fact, most picture buttons are easy to understand, and the shortcut keys are consistent with Windows (e.g. <F3> - Find, <F2> - Rename).

# Context Menu

Context Menu

If you are used to operate Windows by context menus, try to right-click any resources list, you will find what you like.

# Adjust the Size of Work Area

Splitter

On a few interfaces, there are two or more lists. Move your mouse on above splitter bar, and then drag-and-drop it to adjust the size of lists.

# Accepting & Canceling Buttons

On all dialog boxes , there are two buttons - <OK> and <Cancel>. There is a very fast way to perform them - press <Enter> to perform the accepting button (<OK>) and press <Esc> to perform the canceling button (<Cancel>).

# Other Important Tips

>> Automatically Switch to Your Most Commonly Used Module after Started <<
If you don't like to see the "Duplicates" module (default) after started it, you can easily change it:

Change Start Module

>> Windows Service ("Activity" and "Sync" Modules) <<
If you found that "Activity" and "Sync" (automatic mode) modules are not working, please check if WinExt Service is running as below:

Service 1

In Windows Explorer, right-click your Computer and select "Manage".

Service 2

Locate the tree menu to "Services", sort right list by "Name", press <W> to locate "WinExt Service", check if its status is "Started" or "Running".

Service 3

If it is not started, right-click it and select "Properties", set "Startup type" as "Automatic" and click <Start> button, finally, click <OK> to confirm your settings.

By default, WinExt' Service will be set as "Automatic" and will be started after installed it. So, in most cases, you do NOT need to know it even its existence. But in a few extreme cases, it may be not set as "Automatic" and / or started after installed, the common reasons may be: system permission settings, third-party security programs or carelessly disabled it. Once you found "Activity" and "Sync" are not working as usual, you can follow above steps to make it working properly.

>> Algorithm for [Times] ("Recent" Module) <<
  • First run WinExt, the [Times] for all resources will be set to 1.
  • After opened a resource from WinExt, its [Times] increased 1.
  • If you opened a resource from other places, WinExt does not remember this accessed time.
>> Automatically and Manually Refresh List ("Activity" Module) <<
If you are viewing today's logs or the "Specific data range" contains today, the list will be refreshed automatically per 2 minutes.
You may think 2 minutes is too slow, but if the frequency is too high, it will affect your normal operation, so we set the frequency as 2 minutes.
However, you can manually refresh the list to see the latest logs of today at any time, just press <F5> or click Refresh button.
>> Change Properties ("Batch" Module) <<

Change Properties

As above, after changed "Date created" or "Date modified" properties, if you found some resources are not changed, please check if these resources are System and/or Read-only, and the Security / Permissions settings of these resources.

>> Enable or Disable Monitoring ("Activity" Module) <<

Enable / Disable Monitoring

As above, you can disable monitoring for Activity module to reduce the resource consumption if you do NOT use Activity module. By default, it is enabled, to disable it, just uncheck this checkbox and click <Save> button.
