Topic: Protocols supported
For first, welcome to the forum!

Go to the configuration form.

Add a "Web Url" item.
In the URL field put the link onenote://blabla.

SyMenu will tell you that the URL is invalid but you can safely ignore this alert.
Save.

From now on, you can execute your url link from the context menu.

Topic: Some usage problems
There is another reason for which the import from file system will remain as it is today.


Often I receive requests from people that want to use this feature to import their program collection in SyMenu. Typically these program collections come from PortableApps or Liberkey or whatever.

If you act this way you are losing the SyMenu best feature that is the automatic update of your programs.
SyMenu is able to maintain your programs updated only if you "install" them with its own tool (Get new Apps).
And if you use the native SyMenu suite to install all the programs you are interested in, probably your need to import from the previous ones will reduce dramatically.

Can you confirm that the native SyMenu suite contains the majority of your program?
Otherwise what kind of programs you are using?

Is it possible that a so big slice of programs are still outside the SyMenu native suite?

Yes, Google Translate is a great tool for non-English speaking countries like me
I ’m a little disappointed with your first two replies ... because my habit is to place the portable software in folders according to categories, the number is too much, if I take one by one to create it manually, it is a very huge job ...
Fortunately, the third problem is solved.
Anyway, hope that in the future version, the first two proposals can be taken into account, thank you

What...? Is Google translator so good in translating entire sentences today?
Time ago the automatic translation was only good for single words or... to have a laugh smile

Anyway let's go to your questions.
1) SyMenu fills the recent list only with programs under its control. If you executed a local program through a linked folder you won't find it among recent.
2) Nope. It would be a huge development for a feature you use at most once in a life. You have to import and the manually organize the imported items. Sorry.

3) There is not an "include option" but since SyMenu imports only .exe and .bat files, you can add a global ignore option such as this one: *.bat. The result will be the same as you'd use the *.exe include option.

Topic: Some usage problems
Thank you for providing this good tool, I have a few questions I would like to ask as follows:
  • When I added a folder link in SyMenu, when executing the execution file of the subfolder, the history of the latest execution file is recorded. Only the upper-level folder can be recorded. Is there any way to record this execution file in the recent execution history?
  • Regarding the batch import function, is it possible to let the imported data include a tree path instead of placing all execution files at the first level?
  • There is an ignored option in the batch import, but I only need to import the * .exe file, so can I add an included option?

Sorry, my English is not good. The above question was converted using google translation. I hope you can understand and look forward to your reply.

It'll be impossible.

Theming a form is fairly simple because I need to change its colors, the border and other properties.
Theming a control is far more difficult because I need to redraw it entirely.

Redraw a control means to take a pen (virtual one), track a line/circle/rectangle, draw a string if a control has a text, define what happens during the mouse events... It's a huge job.
When in the past I changed the SyMenu controls with the current ones, I used an open library (https://github.com/IgnaceMaes/MaterialSkin) that is partially skinnable (light theme and dark theme) and, despite this, it was a massive job.

Ok guys, I'm here to confirm that a full theme configuration will be available from the next version (6.10).
It will work this way: if you change the theme for your contextual menu, you'll get the same theme in the configuration forms too. That way the chosen theme will be consistent all over the application.

The forms have several controls that are not used in the contextual menu, think about the radio and check buttons, the panel borders, the treenodes and so on.

I choose not to allow a full change of every color for every control to avoid this kind of complexity. For example the radio buttons will remain blue, so please don't use that exact blue tone for the background otherwise you will lost all your controls smile

Thank you though for what you have done, it's greatly appreciated.

I wondered if it were possible to add "Website" to this menu, so that we can avoid having to open the config form just to go to an apps homepage please.

Just to clarify...
1. Click the SyMenu tray icon.
2. Select an item in your menu and Right click it. You get Run Item, Open Folder, etc.
3. I think an addition to open the website defined in the item's config form would be useful.

Thank you

No matter what I try, I cannot get the setting to save to the zip file. Despite SynWrite having the ability to write to Read Only and compressed files, The changes refuse to stay changed.


It's a problem unrelated to SyMenu. SyMenu doesn't rewrite that configuration but it only read it.

You need to find a way to save the zip file with the new settings.
Try to extract the file from inside the zip, change the settings, and create a fully new zip file with the same name of the old one.
It should be work this way.

It depends.


In my case I use an explorer replacement (Unreal Commander) but you can launch an executable from a command shell, from a vb script, from a scheduled task, from a program launcher, from a macro, or even from an open file/save file dialog.

In every case the executable inherits the elevation level from the launcher.

Explorer.exe is not essential to Windows to correctly work. If you want to experiment, try to open an explorer replacement program and kill the process Explorer.exe. Nothing will change in Windows except for the disappearance of your desktop and start menu.

Yeah, I just launch it from regularly from the SyMenu folder

I knew about the shield; that's how I knew it was in elevated mode. What do you mean the app that launches SyMenu? I thought Explorer.exe launched all of the apps/programs.

You have a folder named "woqq0yoq.do4" inside your [SyMenu]\ProgramFiles\SPSSuite
Remove it and the tab will disappear.

Hi

I've just noticed two changes to the tabs in the Manage SPS Apps menu. First, that SysInternals Suite is struck out (and I've seen elsewhere on this forum the reason for that), but second tab has confused me and I can't find reference to it anywhere on Google or this forum: as per the attached picture, I have a fourth tab entitled "woqq0yoq.do4". Any clues as to what this might be for?

Thank you!
