Hi Folks,

I want to replace some explorer functionality with that of total commander. More specific: opening my documents folder should open it in total commander instead of explorer.

Does anybody know which registry entries are involved or whatever it takes to accomplish this?

Kind regards,

Peter

This should do it... Copy the listing between the lines below to Notepad and save it as tc.reg
Run the file and select "yes" to merge it to the registry.
NOTE: Make sure that the path to total commander is reflected correctly in the reg script. Change it as needed to show where it is installed on your system.
========================================
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell]
@="TC"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\TC]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\TC\command]
@="\"C:\\totalcmd\\totalcmd.exe\" \"%1\""
===============================================

And what should I do to return the state as it was before when explorer was the default file browser?
