A User Command is any program (usually an EXE file) that the user may wish to execute from V.


In the Directory View, the currently selected file(s) may be passed to the User Command and in the File View, the currently viewed file may be passed to the command.


This is a great way to extend V.


For example, V cannot encrypt files. However, if you already have a program which does this, you can define a User Command which will let you encrypt files using V.


User Commands are created by selecting Organize from the UserCommands menu. Once created, User Commands are executed by selecting them from the UserCommands menu.


Keyboard Shortcuts


The default User Command is the first in the list and can be executed by pressing Ctrl+U. The most recently executed User Command can also be repeated by pressing Ctrl+Shift+U. Each User Command can also be assigned its own keyboard shortcut.


Running as Administrator


Under Vista or Windows 7,  the User Command can be run as an Administrator by right-clicking on the command and selecting Run As Administrator


Debug Mode


If you right-click on the User Command and select Run in Debug Mode, the command to be executed will be displayed before it is run. You will then have the option of running the command or cancelling it. This is a good way of making sure that the correct file names are being passed to the command.
