Exciting New Video Modes in ZTreeWin!

Posted By: Greg Akers <>

In case anyone is unfamiliar with ZTreeWin, it's the premier 32-bit XTreeGold clone designed to take advantage of today's Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP (and OS/2) facilities and memory to help you manage today's huge hard disks with numerous files on them. It's what XTreeGold woulda/coulda/shoulda been if it hadn't died in a corporate takeover. It is shareware that can be freely downloaded from > where there are also frequent new beta* versions made available with terrific new features.

The exciting new video modes are part of the latest alpha** versions available from, and discussed at, the ZTreeWin Forum at >

XTreeGold can only get a maximum of 50 rows by 80 columns in it's text-mode window. But now new /ROWS and /COLS command line switches let you set the height and width of the ZTreeWin window using the Alt-F8 and Alt-F9 key combinations. Depending on your monitor, video and font settings you go to 80 rows by 132 columns, or even more! There's even a /MAX command line switch to open ZTreeWin with the largest number of rows and columns that your settings allow.

All this means that ZTreeWin now gives you much better views of long file names, long directory names and very deep directory trees. It's a very exciting new feature that is still being tested and tuned by the Z-Fans at the ZTreeWin Forum.

*Beta versions of software are pre-release works-in-progress used for testing and debugging.
**Alpha versions of software are first implementations of pre-beta versions used for concept development, testing and debugging.
