FileMenu Tools 6.5

FileMenu Tools is a very useful tool that crams 28 handy file management functions into a single new option on the right-click Explorer menu.

Want to securely delete a file containing confidential data, for instance? No need to load a separate program, just right-click the file from Explorer, click File Menu Tools > Shred Files and follow the instructions.

Maybe you want to split huge files, so they can be emailed or burned to CD? There's a Split File option to do that, and of course a Join File menu entry when you want to stitch them together again.

Other powerful features include Find And Replace (finds and replaces the text you specify across all your selected files), Advanced Renamer (rename a whole folder of files in seconds), and Synchronize Folders (easy synchronisation with your choice of type - unidirectional, bidirectional, both - and the file types to synchronise).

And the program also provides quick shortcuts to common file functions that you can probably do in other ways (just not quite as easily). So you can change the attributes or time stamp of your files, copy or move them to the folder you specify, send them by email, copy their names or paths to the clipboard, and plenty more.

FileMenu Tools 6.5 brings these changes:

  • The languages can be downloaded or updated from the application. You now do not need to go to website to download your language and install it manually.
  • Command Line From Here: this command will be run as administrator if either the key CTRL or the key SHIFT are pressed.
  • Attributes: added a new option to show/hide the file extensions.
  • Size of Folders: now takes into account the hard links and therefore calculates correctly the real size in disk when a file has several hard links referenced into the folder or subfolders.
  • Fixed bug in Change Time: does not read correctly the time of folders.
  • Improvements in custom commands:
    • You can create a copy of the custom commands or a complete submenu.
    • Now you can specify relative paths for the executable files. If the full path is not specified, then the file is searched into the folders in PATH environment variable.
    • The variable @OPENFILE@ lets you now select several files.
    • The variables @OPENFILE@ and @SAVEFILE@ can be configured to specify the file types displayed in the dialog box.
  • Improvements in Advanced Renamer:
    • Added new variables to insert into the file name:
      • %COMPUTERNAME%
      • %USERNAME%
      • %FOLDERNAME%
    • Added two new conversion types:
      • Encode to URL format. The special characters will be converted to %XX
      • Decode from URL format. The special characters will be decoded from the form %XX
    • Now the preview is updated automatically and is more efficient than in previous versions
