User Commands in Xplorer2

When I am doing anything more complicated than simple file browsing I use Xplorer2 rather than the windows file browser.

One of the features of Xplorer2 is the ability to run commands on files you have selected.

These are the commands I currently have set up:

  • VS Cmd
    $”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bin\sdkvars.bat”
    Sets the console to act like a Visual Studio command prompt
  • Get Public Key
    $sn -Tp “$F”
    Gets an assemblies public key (requires vs Cmd to be run first).
  • DiffMerge Files
    >”C:\Program Files\SourceGear\DiffMerge\DiffMerge.exe” “$F” “$G”
    Uses Source Gear’s DiffMerge to diff files from each pane.
  • DiffMerge Folders
    >”C:\Program Files\SourceGear\DiffMerge\DiffMerge.exe” “$P” “$I”
    Uses Source Gear’s DiffMerge to diff folders from each pane (although Xplorer2 does this well enough itself).
