I'm seriously considering changing the windows explorer explorer.exe to something else.
It seems a lot of people are very happy with Dopus, or Directory Opus.
Even with windows 7, the Microsoft-brand explorer.exe seems to not support path names over 256 characters. And since it seems that every app calls to explorer.exe to generate File, Open dialogs, that means those apps also, cannot use C:.................\filename.txt when the total length is over 256 characters.
Although the file system NTFS supports +32,000 characters.
I have the information that Total Commander, Servant Salamander, and XYPlorer all have the necessary support and can go over this artificial limit.
Please let me know! Thanks.
