Menu Bar is disabled!



  • If I click the name to select a zip file, then double click the file name to open it, menu bar will be disabled.

    Is it a bug?



  • This is using Explorer View and yes, I believe it is a bug.
    Especially as the Menu remains disabled (greyed out) when you close the Zip archive (e.g. by pressing BackSpace).

    [Edit] The menu bar is not disabled when Zip is opened in Classic View.

    ok, I noticed this once but I could have never find it - can you please explain how exactly you get there?

    thanks!!!



  • Start PA (from Start Button) and switch to Explorer View if not already active 😉

    Explorer pane shows (some starting) folder.

    Navigate to Programs\PowerArchiver and single click (select) Tutor1.zip.
    Now double click Tutor1.zip.
    Explorer pane shows Tutor1.zip, PA archive pane shows contents.

    Menu Bar (File, Edit, View …) is disabled - greyed out.

    Press BackSpace to close Tutor1.zip

    Menu Bar (File, Edit, View …) is still greyed out.
    Also, Explorer pane again shows (some starting) folder, not the expected Programs\PowerArchiver directory.



  • Also noticed that when navigating folders, if double clicking to open directory sometimes activates the [folder rename] option rather than opening it.

    In this case the menu bar is disabled until renaming is finished.
    Could there be a similarity?

    Thanks - will check it out. Kind of funny - it is easy to reproduce but I tried gazillion different things before and couldnt get it to show itself 🙂

    thanks again
