Get Vista Explorer Style Full Row Selection\Checkboxes in XP

Postby TeMerc » Fri Dec 19, 2008 7:51 am

If you are still using Windows XP and are jealous of the optional but really useful checkboxes feature in Vista, or the full row selection in details mode, there's a new solution for you that one of our readers wrote in about yesterday.

The solution comes in the form of a small executable application requiring the .NET 3.5 framework, and weighing in at about 13mb of memory usage in my testing, which plugs into Explorer and adds full row selection and checkboxes, although the checkboxes are a little odd (more below on that).

I'm not sure that I'd keep it running all the time… I'd probably just turn it on whenever I needed to use checkboxes to more easily select a bunch of files, and then turn it off when I was done.
