GUI's of Filebot

Post by ChefGregS » 12 Mar 2018, 00:28

I notice that when I run FileBot from it's folder instead of from the start menu a couple of the exe's have a different GUI. Curious why this is? I actually like the alternate GUI look rather than then general one.

I know I can simply attach the one I like (the first one) to the start menu or task bar...but just curious if it's selectable via the app somewhere? Would be nice to be able to select a color theme as well. I love the 3D look of that one.

Just wondering....

:!: You're using an outdated version of FileBot. Please use the version of FileBot you have installed via the Windows Store to avoid confusion and get the best user experience. :!:


If you like the Nimbus Look and Feel (i.e. the Java Cross Platform Look and Feel) then you can enable that via ENV variables. Same layouts may be broken though because I never really test that particular Look and Feel.

You can use CMD to set ENV variables:

Code: Select all

setx JAVA_OPTS -Dswing.systemlaf=javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel

You can also use the Windows Settings GUI to modify ENV variables.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
