"Browse For Folder" dialog is inconvenient


Recommended Posts

The "Browse For Folder" dialog is very inconvenient because it has no Path edit box where I can paste the path I want. It would be perfect if you add an edit box at the "Browse For Folder" dialog.

 

It is used in at least 2 places:

  • Options - Include - Add - Drive or Folder - Browse
  • Options - Exclude - Add - Drive or Folder - Browse

It would be nice to have that feature, and it really is inconvenient when the path/file is in a hidden area because then we have to enable Hidden Files and Folders in Windows for the path/file to even show up in CCleaner's browse window.

I like this suggestion +1

(note you can already choose something random, then manually edit it, but that's a work around not a solution)

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

A roundabout way I do it is open an explorer window and drag and drop the address/folder right into the include list. It's always good practice to review the folder contents before including it anyways!

Only works (reliably) for XP

Vista and Win7 Run as elevated, no drag and drop to elevated programs.
