I always click apply/ok when making changes, so yes did that
also i did a backup of the config file, closed out of DO and used task manager to kill any processes then opened again and same outcome. boooo i guess
Try navigating to another folder
opened D drive and went down to a file level then claicked THIS PC.
sadly the same outcome.
------------------and used task manager to kill any processes-------------
oops, but tbh i did not know that. ignorance is bliss i guess
-----------------------If you want Opus to exit automatically when no---------------
as to this suggestion i actually let/ leave DO running in the background as im in and out of it a lot, so its very usefol to have it there. in any case my system is quite fast so even totally closing it is immaterial, opening it again is pretty much instant.
but in passing we still have the original problem so wondering where we go with that.
also i would like to say that i do appreciate the promptness of your replies. there is another program i use that has glitches and when i post a support query it takes, in one instance x2 weeks to get a reply.
Looking at your first screenshot again, I noticed something I didn't before: You're in Quick Access > This PC. From a quick test of the same thing here, that will trigger what you're seeing. We will fix that.
(Opus isn't recognising that path as the special This PC folder, since it isn't in its usual place in the folder tree, so it's being treated as an unknown non-filesystem folder and delegated to the Windows shell. We'll fix it so it detects the folder properly when it's accessed via Quick Access.)
If you click Desktop > This PC, farther down the tree, does that one work OK for the time being?
leo, this might help you to understand where i want to end up with this issue. i have attached a screeen shot of a COMPOSITION of a couple of screens of DO. so this is a screen shot of a COMPOSITION, not an actual screen. ps i use a program called THUMBS to do this. ( http://www.cerious.com/ ). and yep i own a legal version too.
anyways this is how i would really love to be able to set up DO on opening. i know the top part of the screen is from QUICK ACCESS which seems to be controlled by windows, and the lower part is true DO. the LHS screen is pure DO. i dont mind is the x2 RHS screens are in the opposite order, ie blue bar graphs at the bottom but i prefer it at the top as shown.
so ultimately this is what im aiming for. maybe its not possible, maybe it is.
and finally the grand final, the bee all and end all, the day ABRAHAM ascended the MOUNT to commune with the LORD OF ALL REALMS........and the LORD sayeth, ABE DUDE descent the MOUNT, go forth and weep no more my good lad, for from henc forth your tears will be as the sweetest rain upon the orange blossoms.
so this is what i want for both QUICK ASSECC- THIS PC and DESKTOP- THIS PC. YEAAA
ref: QUICK ASSESS- THIS PC
some posts back , 12/16 i added some screen shots. one showed a red cross. concentrating on the red cross post, how do we remove all the items of the red cross window. this will leave only the drives and the bar graphs showing
also who controls QUICK ACCESS, is it part of DO or a third paarty program. i ask this as it seems to be somewhat independent of DO as a whole. just wondering.
looking back over the history of comments etc there are more than a few who are, from mildly to fairly critical of many aspects of DO and of the people who manage support. one comment in particular was quite rude but ill reply to that particular person directly.
as for me, im just a dumb ass who struggles with the complexity of a lot of software and programs of today but at least im respectful of others foibles, unlike the generally, it appears pomposity and it seems sneering demeanour of some of the support people at DO, specially referencint the person just mentioned just previously.
just by the by leo, we, well you didnt actually solve the issue. basically you pointed out that there is some technical issue which will be addresses in the next update. thats a DETOUR while the road is under repair so to say. im hoping you will notify me whence that date comes along
The solution is to click This PC in the main part of the tree.
A fix for what happens if you click it via the Quick Access branch of the tree is coming. (You can't change what happens when you do that via any other method. You have to either click in the other part of the tree or wait for the fix to be released.)
