Change Log History

The latest “Free” version is version 2.0. “Pro X” versions are updated to the latest version posted here.

Some versions are relased gradually, meaning not everyone will get the latest version as soon as it is released. This is to ensure that if any unexpected bugs are introduced in the app resulting in crashes, the developer will get a chance to fix it before releasing it to all users.

This is the biggest update of Shrestha Files Pro X (Beta) since the first beta version was released.

  1. Colorful icon themes

    • Three colorful icon themes are added. Switch between the icon themes from the Theme Settings. Refresh pages to see the change.
    • These icon themes provides generic icons for various types of files.
    • Enabling these icons allows files/folders to load faster (because generating actual thumbnails takes a while).
    • Users can still choose to show actual thumbnails instead of generic thumbnails from the settings.
    • Users can also choose to use very basic generic thumbnails (based on Glyph icons) that should be even faster to load.
    • Users can choose to load actual thumbnails for specific file types even when generic thumbnails are used. This is useful for file types such as images for which actual thumbnails are significantly more useful.
    • Users can create their own icon themes:
      • Create a folder inside CustomIcons folder in the LocalState folder.
      • Paste SVG files for various file types, e.g. for file type “.txt”, add a SVG file named txt.svg.
      • Users can download the SVG files from places such as svgrepo or icons8. Thanks to both websites! Link is not added here because Community Toolkit’s MarkDown editor is not working as expected when links are added. svg repo and icons8 links are provided in the About section of the app.
      • Make sure the SVG icons does not have width and height, if they do, just remove them, e.g., update this (svg viewBox=”0 0 48 48” width=”240px” height=”240px”) to this (svg viewBox=”0 0 48 48”).
      • Also add defaultfile.svg and defaultfolder.svg. defaultfile.svg is used for all file types for which type specific SVG file is not provided.
      • defaultfolder.svg is used for all folders.
      • Users can also add text.svg, image.svg, audio.svg, and video.svg that will be used for corresponding formats (e.g. text.svg will be used for .txt, .json, etc. if type specific icon is not provided).
  2. Title bar should look nicer when Extend Contents to Title bar is enabled in Windows 10.

  3. Thumbnails/icons are available now for system files, hidden files, and other shortcuts .appref-ms, .url, and .wsh files. These might look blurry in grid views.

  4. Acrylic background image now stretches while maintaining proportion to avoid image distortion.

  5. Fixed PDFViewer was not opening for pdf files. Known issue: the PDF viewer sometimes does not load all pages properly.

  6. App rating feature reimplemented.

  7. App purchase feature reimplemented.

  8. App updater feature reimplemented.

  9. Added sliders in the item template settings to change simple list and tiles length.

  10. Share should work for files again! It may not support some file types such as .lnk, .url, etc.

  11. Settings should be automatically saved while closing Shrestha Files Pro X now. The reliability of this implementation needs to be tracked over time.

  12. PDF files should look sharper even when the window is slightly wider (1920).

  13. Language switching should work even after restarting the app.

  14. Miscellaneous improvements.
