Got it.




This software manages files - a convenient alternative to the standard Windows OS tool 'Windows Explorer'.
  1. Open the file tcmd702a.exe
  2. When asked about installing Total Commander also in other languages, choose "No".
  3. Select c:\tools as the directory under which to install.
  4. Agree, if it asks to add shortcut to the desktop.

Check the installation:

  1. Open the Total Commander icon on the desktop.
  2. Click button OK in the dialog window.
  3. Read, which button (button 1, 2 or 3) you have to press, and press that button.
  4. Check that Total Commander starts.

Set EditPlus as the Default Editor in TotCmd

  1. Open Total Commander and press the required button (1, 2 or 3).
  2. Select the menu item Configuration -> Options.
  3. Select Edit/View configuration and select the editor as C:/Program Files/EditPlus2/editplus.exe (or use the >> button to browse to the location of EditPlus). This editor will respond to the functional key button F4 within the Total Commander.
  4. Click button OK.
  5. Note: Also the F3 (View) button is often useful. It opens a file viewer or "Lister" application, which does not allow edits. Lister application, which is installed with Total Commander is useful to view huge files, which would be very slow to open with EditPlus. It is also safer to use Lister than Editor, if we do not want to modify the file. "Lister" application allows to view the binary contents of each file by picking the Lister menu item Options -> Hex.
