Items menuThe items (popup) menu displays options that apply to the Item list entries. Some options are only available when one or more entries are selected. Options that are not available are Grayed out.
Go to...Switch to the directory that contains the selected item (the drive + pathname of the selected item will become the current directory).
Bookmark directoryAdd the directory (drive + pathname) to the bookmark list.
OpenOpen (execute) the selected item.
Open with...Specify a program that should open (process) the selected file.
(pre)View as textView the selected file as a text file. Many text files are recognized by their file extension but if the file extension is not recognized by ScanDir you can use this option to display the content of a file as ASCII text.
FindFind text in Item list. Items that contain the specified text string are selected (highlighted). Find is case-sensitive!
Select AllSelect all items.
Select NoneSelect no items (de-select all selected items).
Invert selectionInvert selection: de-select all selected items and select all non-selected items.
move entry UpBy default, the item list is sorted but individual filenames can be moved Up or Down in the list. Use Shitf+U as a shortcut to move an entry Up one position.
move entry DownBy default, the item list is sorted but individual filenames can be moved Up or Down in the list. Use Shift+D as a shortcut to move an entry Down one position.
Changing the order in which entries are arranged in the Item list can be useful in case Rename with sequence numbers is used.
Remove from item listThe selected filename(s) are removed from the item list, but NOT deleted. This option can be used if you want to exclude some files from further processing (e.g. rename, save, copy, move, delete, save...) on the files in the item list. Files that are removed from the item list are also excluded from the statistics that are shown in the information screen.
ClearClear (empty) the item list.
CopyDisplays the Copy Dialog to copy selected file(s) to another directory. If the target directory does not exist, ScanDir will prompt to create it. During the copy operation, files can be renamed (for advanced Rename functions see:below). When files with the same name already exist in the target directory, copied files are renamed to: "Copy of filename.ext". If Options * Confirm Rename is checked, a confirmation message is displayed before the copy (rename) takes place.
MoveDisplays the Move Dialog to move selected file(s) to another directory. If the target directory does not exist, ScanDir will prompt to create it. During the move operation, files can be renamed (for advanced Rename functions see:Options * Confirm Rename is checked, a confirmation message is displayed before the move (rename) takes place.
RenameRename selected file(s). If Options * Confirm Rename is checked, a confirmation message is displayed before the rename takes place. If multiple files are selected, the Batch Rename Dialog is displayed.
AttribSet (or change) file attribute(s). Select this option to invoke the Attribute(s) Dialog. With the Attrib dialog the following attributes can be modified: Read-Only, Hidden, System and Archive. In addition, the Attribute(s) Dialog can be used to change the Date modified and/or Date created for one or more files.
EmptyEmpty file. Use the Empty command to empty the selected file(s). When a file is emptied, it's content is deleted but the file itself is not deleted, it remains as an empty file.
DeleteDelete selected file(s). If Options * Confirm Delete is checked, a confirmation message is displayed before the delete takes place. Deleted files are kept in the recycle bin (except when this function is disabled in Windows).
PurgePermanently delete selected file(s). Deleted files are NOT kept in the recycle bin! If Options * Confirm Purge is checked, a confirmation message is displayed before the purge takes place.
ChecksumDisplay a sub-menu with the available checksum options. The calculated checksums are displayed in a new window, from which they can be copied to the clipboard or saved to a text file.
CRC32 Calculate CRC32 checksum for selected files. CRC32 is the fastest checksum, but it is easy to manipute (less secure). CRC32 is often used by programs like 7-Zip, WinZip and WinRar.
MD5 Calculate MD5 checksum for selected files. MD5 has long been the preferred checksum method, but it is no longer considered 100% secure.
SHA256 Calculate SHA256 checksum for selected files. SHA256 is recommended for 32-bit (x86) computers.
SHA512 Calculate SHA512 checksum for selected files. SHA512 provides the same security as SHA256 but is faster for 64-bit (x64) computers.
Filename to clipboardCopy the filename (without the pathname) of the selected item to the clipboard.
Path to clipboardCopy filename, including full path of the selected item to the clipboard.
File info...Display total number of files and total file size for the selected items.
