Due to a bug with Store Apps and ActiveX components, this update doesn’t use ActiveX in File Preview (Space bar). If the Windows has appropriate Shell Extension for generating thumbnails for a certain file type, an image preview will be generated. For example, in case of PDF files, user will not be able to flip through pages within Preview, but will be presented with only the first page of the file (Acrobat Reader or other PDF reader needs to be installed and thumbnail option enabled in settings). The Portable and ClickOnce versions of One Commander from this page still support ActiveX. Once Microsoft resolves this issue, the ActiveX preview will be reenabled.
Program Messages are by default now shown in TitleBar instead of slide-down message. Due to unknown WPF rendering framework crashing while displaying information in this panel on some computers, messages have been moved to Title Bar, but these can be reenabled in program Settings.
Other various small bug-fixes have been made, and small UI tweaks and element alignment.
- Important bug fixes and improvements
- New theme with colors similar to MacOS Finder thanks to Tom E. (Switch it in Settings)
- Folders sorting by date is now possible in Files columns
- Renaming Favorites/Projects groups
- Message panel is full width (you can also have message shown in title bar
- Drive hover will show “Open in Second Panel” icon (if 2nd panel is visible) – You can still Ctrl+Click on drive or Favorite Folder to open it in 2nd panel
- Ctrl + U switches panels
- Alt + F jumps cursor to Left panel
- Alt + G jumps cursor to Right panel
If you need to sort Folders my date in navigational columns, hold ALT and click the date sorting trinangle icon. You will need to reopen program (or click other tab and back). This is temporary interaction and usability will be improved in the future. To revert to name sorting of folders in Navigation Colums, Alt+click the name column sort triangle, and reopen.
This update is at this time only available for Store version of the program and other version will be updated soon

Few other changes had to be made in preparing for conversion and distribution with Windows Store (will be published soon), so please report any bugs ASAP.
After a few months of break I have continued development and last week published 0.6.32.0 update
I am not sure what happened and when, but even the older versions of the program do not check for updates any more. OCv2 was automatically updated with Microsoft ClickOnce technology, and after a few hours I am still not able to solve the problem.
Windows Store Deployment soon – Recently Microsoft allowed non-UWP programs on Windows store so in the last days I have worked on that, but the account has to be manually enabled for that. Application has been submitted and I hope it will be approved soon. That should mean even more seamless updates than with ClickOnce, but it works only with Windows Anniversary update and later.
Since not all users will be able to use Windows Store to install and update the program, I will continue publishing ClickOnce and Portable version of the program for each new update.
A apologize for the inconvenience with automatic updates, and I will continue looking for a way to fix the problem. In the meantime please follow either Facebook Page or Twitter Page or Google Plus page to be notified on new updates.
- AlphaFS dll updated to the latest version
- Magick.NET dll updated to the latest version
- White theme is now default (“Light” and “Dark” are still available)
- Several bugs fixed
Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable installer so it has been removed from the installer as it caused some issues. If you do not already have it, a message will be displayed the first time you use File Processor, and you can open Microsoft’s download page from there.
One Commander Portable version is available at http://OneCommander.com/OneCommanderPortable.zip but it does not support automatic updates
