- von Darkman 75ful, vor 8 MonatenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenDoes what I want. Simple. Effective. I'm just not giving the fifth star because I would have liked lnk files for Windows and save links with the context menu and not only the page itself
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 8 MonatenA .lnk is a shortcut to a physical file or object on the computer, so this is not possible
As for your second suggestion, this functionality does exist, but it's disabled by default, you can enable it in the add-on settings.
- von DadK, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenHad to reinstall Firefox on Windows 10. Lost my profile and Add-ons. Reinstalled Firefox, then QuickCut. Under Options selected (1) Choose a type: Windows .url, (2) Always save as: Not Set (3) checked the Context Menu box, and (4) typed ‘Saved Links’ (without quotes) into the Folder box (after first creating the soft symbolic link in a terminal: mklink /D %HOMEPATH%\Downloads\Desktop %HOMEPATH%\Desktop. I then hit the Save button. From the (right-click) Context menu I saved a link to a website – expecting the same behavior from QuickCut that I used to get: the link is created on my Windows 10 Desktop. But now it’s created in my (symbolically-linked) folder on my Desktop: Saved Links. Is there any way to get the link to appear on my Desktop directly (as it once did) rather than in the folder on my Desktop (Saved Links)? Five stars, not four, if I can get the link placed directly on my Windows 10 Desktop! (BTW: I built a one-click vbs client script solution to stop the warning that appears when trying to open the QuickCut link. Can share if anyone is interested.)
- von Daps, vor 2 JahrenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenWorks well, except for the security box that pops up every time I open an url shortcut. This has been mentioned several times by other reviewers but I can't find any response. Thanks
- von celtic-knot, vor 2 JahrenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenThank you! I'm another for whom DeskCut was essential, and for whom QuickCut will become an essential replacement.
Like some other reviewers, I have had times when it does nothing, doesn't create anything. Like them, that's a problem: you don't want to have to constantly monitor whether it's worked or not. So I've tried to dig to investigate the problem:
A typical problem would be saving a QuickCut of an individual tweet. And here's where I think the problem comes. QuickCut uses the page title as a filename; twitter uses the tweet content as the page title; the content can contain up to 280 chars, including ones that are invalid. QuickCut seems to be okay at stripping out invalid characters, but not at stripping back excess characters. If you use the 'Save As' screen you can strip them back manually and it works. But if you set it to automatically save to default folder, it treats it as an invalid filename and does nothing.
So could it - by default or as a preference - limit the length of the title, as that would seem to solve the problem? (If relevant, this is on Linux)
I really want it to just work in the background as DeskCut did...
Thank you again for your work on this.
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 2 JahrenHey, thanks for the review, you're completely right, the length of the filename being too long was something I overlooked when I made this extension, I just uploaded a new version that fixes these issues. Hope it works for you and others.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 10924416, vor 3 JahrenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenThanks for this. Long time user of Deskcut so glad to have this. One question - whenever I open a URL a dialog box asks me if I want to open this file. Is there a way to avoid this and open the URL directly?

Is there any way to have the link to go directly to the desktop and bypass the Save-As window?
Other than that it works great!
Antwort des Entwicklersgeschrieben am vor 4 JahrenYou can bypass the confirmation windows by changing your Files and Applications settings to "Save files to" and then choose "Desktop". Do keep in mind that this will save all your downloads to desktop.
Unfortunately it is only possible for the extension to save files relative to the download directory. I am planning on creating a setting that will allow users to choose download folders relative to the download directory. This folder can then be redirected to another folder using a symbolic link.
