"Configure programs" window to keep its last chosen dimensions

Post by gonefinishing »

Hi there,

This suggestion refers to the fact that whenever one needs to create a new configuration for, say, an Exiftool command, and opens the aforementioned "Configure programs" window either (under 'Tools-Open With' menus or right-clicking an image), it would be great if the new dimensions chosen by the user (by dragging and dropping both the window's borders as well as the columns') were kept that way next time around.

Exiftool commands for instance, are usually quite long and quite personally, whenever I'm creating a batch of them (one at a time), having to resize this window every time I have to create a new command, becomes a hassle after a while.

As it is now:

Soon after returning to it:

So, is it feasible?

Thanks in advance.

moving buttons (Add/Select/Remove) from right to bottom will help as well

I support this suggestion. While testing a new command, it's tedious to resize the window each time you try.
