Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

The current download, V3.101, fixes the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


Resetting FileBoss Options

  • Hold down the Ctrl key
  • Click on the FileBoss icon
  • Release the Ctrl key when the Startup Options dialog appears
  • Set the options you want
  • Click OK to start FileBoss 

Selecting any option other than Normally will force FileBoss to display the Exit Options dialog described below. This prevents your current options and settings from being lost by mistake.

Exit Options
