Quick Cliq Updated to Version!

Hello, Quick Cliq users!

And finally here it is, a new Quick Cliq version! I know you were waiting it impatiently and so on… But it took a little bit to fix all those bugs we found with your help. Though there is still a lot we can fix and change, add and invent, so keep up sending us your suggestions and comments, we appreciate them a lot. Thank you for using Quick Cliq!

You can check the full changelog for details (it is quite big, oh yeah!), but here I will explain the most significant features added since the last version.

Folders Changing:

So, let’s start with fast folders changing. You can use this feature by opening Quick Cliq’s menu on top of the explorer window or open/save dialog and press Middle Mouse Button or CTRL+Right Click on any shortcut, just like this:

If the items shortcut is a folder, you will be moved there, if it is a file path, you will be moved to that file location:

Another example for Save dialog:

“System” shortcut type:

This is a new window that appears when you select “System” from the predefined shortcuts drop down list.

Here you can see the list of shortcuts (right side) according to the selected categories (left side). You can quickly choose a shortcut by double clicking it, or selecting a few of them and pressing the “Add Shortcuts” button. You can also check what a shortcut actually does by pressing the “Test Shortcut” button. But be careful with items like “Shutdown” or “Log Off”! :)

If you have a good suggestion about what else should be in that list – just send us a note, press “Send New” button.

RUNAS command:

Annoyed with that all-seeing-UAC, eh? No!? It may be useful to start some programs with admin rights, especially if some of the features of that application don’t work properly… Haven’t run across this bad story yet? Oh you will some day, I’m sure of it.

When this does happen, you can easily solve it – using RUNAS command. Just put this special word (it’s not case-sensitive, I just like caps) before any target path you wan’t to use, for example:

RUNAS “D:\SOFT\Utils\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe”

If you have UAC enabled, it will ask your permission to run this app with full access rights (On XP it will ask you the Administrator password though). This simple method can help you get your programs working properly.

And just few tips about using this command:

  1. Remember to enclose your file path into the quotes. This is the best practice to do this always, but it is absolutly needed if the path contains any spaces, for example this will not work:
  2. RUNAS D:\SOFT\Some Folder\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe

  3. You can use arguments:
  4. RUNAS “D:\SOFT\Utils\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe” /t /s:1234

  5. You can use this command inside a Multi-Target shortcut:
  6. cmd {N} runas “D:\SOFT\Utils\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe” {N} charmap

  7. This may not work with non executable files, like text files or word documents.

Drag & Drop for Shortcuts Tree:

It is now much easier to move your shortcuts from the deepest menu to the top, just use drag & drop! :)

Send us new Afo:

Do you like the “quote of the day” under the main window? I’m sure you do. If so, you have an option to send us your favorite aphorizm – right click on the afo-bar and choose “Send New” and it’s possible it will appear in next version of Quick Cliq.

Transparent Windows option:

Want to make some window a little less evident? OK, we have an option, just choose “Change Transpareny” item from the “Windows” menu and move slider down!

Thats all for now. If you have any questions or wonder how one or another feature works – leave a comment and we’ll explain it in the details.

Stay with us, stay Quick!
