The upper pane shows the list of the items that will be processed by WinContig. The status bar at the bottom of the pane
displays the total number of listed items and the total number of processed files. The size of the pane can be adjusted by dragging
the splitter at the bottom edge of the status bar.
By default, items are color coded, based on their status after being processed. You can customize this feature in the settings of WinContig.
When an item is double-clicked, WinContig opens the item by using its associated application. You can change this behavior in the settings of WinContig.
Click the right mouse button on an item to show a shortcut menu from which you can access various actions to execute.
You can also add items to the items list by dragging the desired files and folders from File Explorer and dropping them in the list.
Change which columns are displayed in the items list
By default, WinContig displays all of the available columns in the items list. You can rearrange the order of columns
by dragging a column horizontally to the position that you want.
To change which columns are displayed in the items list, follow these steps:
- Click the right mouse button on any of the column headings to show the column heading context menu.
- Select or deselect the column that you want to display or hide in the context menu.
Select the Default menu item to display the default columns in the default order and with the default widths.
The File name column is always displayed and cannot be hidden, but you can still rearrange the order of the column.
Descriptions of the columns in the items list
The items list has the following columns:
|File name||Displays file name and path of the item. A state icon next to the item icon indicates the status of the item. The display of
the state icon can be toggled in the settings of WinContig.
There are six possible state icons:
|Disk zone||Displays into which zone of the disk the item should be placed. The icon next to the disk zone indicates that WinContig will try to place the item in a different zone of the disk if it is not possible to move the item to the specified disk zone.|
