http://media.smashingmagazine.com/cdn_smash/images/shortcuts/total-commander-logo.pngToday I have 2 tips for Total Commander users:

  • how to display hidden local directories and files and
  • how to display hidden FTP directories and files

Really, Total Commander should just control this setting in one place but, unfortunately, it is not the case.

I usually prefer when my file manager shows me everything I have, so that I can be more in control and see the hidden directories, such as .svn or $Recycle.Bin, and files, such as .bashrc or pagefile.sys.

How To Display Hidden Local Directories And Files

  • go to Configuration -> Options… -> Display
  • put a check next to the "Show hidden/system files (for experts only)"

How To Sort Folders The Same Way As Files In Total Commander


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 11th, 2008 in My Favorites, Stuff

For the longest time I wanted to sort folders (aka directories) in Total Commander but it just wouldn’t. The sort rules only applied to files and I never took the time to figure it out. Well, I found the option now, which I want to share. I can finally see what movies, ahem, I mean presentations, I downloaded last.

The option is right there, in the middle, Sorting Directories. The default is Always by name. Change it to Like files (also by time) and you’re done.
