Configuring a custom Optimize profile to use with Explorer or Finder
By default, NXPowerLite will use default settings when you choose to compress your files using the right-click menu. You can instead use any custom profile of your choice by configuring the Always use these settings with Explorer/Finder in the preferences. Once the setting is enabled you can choose a pre-configured Optimize Profile to always use from Explorer or Finder.
Windows Explorer shortcuts
All NXPowerLite options in Windows Explorer can be accessed by shortcut keys. Select a file and then click Shift & F10 to enable the accessibility menu and then use the underlined shortcut keys along with the arrow keys to navigate the NXPowerLite options.
Note: When this setting is enabled NXPowerLite will always create copies or backups in the same folder as the original, there is no option to change this behavior.
