  1. thank you so much brother,
    but is it just me or if you switch to "toolbar/Menu mode" by clicking on the "customize quickaccess toolbar" button on the top left corner, "BCGWorkspace" registry key is still there.

    1. "BCGWorkspace" refuses to follow the rules, I'll try a custom.nsh to get rid of it.

    2. I can't see where "toolbar/Menu mode" is.

    3. I was looking at UEStudio, not UltraCompare. I've already fixed it, will compile and upload.

  2. @everyone: if you like Dave's works, click on the widget on the right top of this page (Discord's portable community)
