Although I can hide File Locator's window toolbar (*) with "View -> Toolbar" for the current session, by the next time I start File Locator the toolbar is there again.

This is despite having "Tools -> Configuration -> History -> Remember -> Options Settings" and "... -> Remember -> Windows size, position & font settings" on as default.

Is there a way to hide it permanently, or maybe this aspect of the UI could be fixed in a future version ? Thank you very much.

(*) You know, the thingy with cute icons which all programs nowadays just have to include below the regular "File" text menu, for illiterate users who can't read said text menu, which has the same exact options.

Which version of FileLocator Pro are you using?

If you're using the latest version of FileLocator Pro it should remember that setting when you re-open the program. Check that you have permissions to write to the registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mythicsoft\FileLocatorPro\Workspace

If you close the Toolbar AND the Menu and want to get them back you can reset the User Interface with the command line switch -resetui, e.g.

FileLocatorPro.exe -resetui

Using FileLocator Lite*), I have exactly the same problem: The toolbar setting is not remembered. A registry key named HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mythicsoft\FileLocatorLite\Settings gets created, but is never used (always empty). A registry key named HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mythicsoft\FileLocatorLite\Workspace does not exist.

This issue seems to be part of a more general problem, see Q: Agent Ransack\FileLocator Lite not multi-user capable.

*) FileLocator Lite 64 bit, Release Build 762 - 2010.03.29.47911, on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
