This is the Help "file" for the Python Application whose main page is: Python Delete Duplicate File Utility

This Help Page is Early Draft

2021 July .... working on enhancements so may get this page right, had to get wiki here working again, finally is Fix coming soon..... No it is not, help is going to link to the main project page. This material will be reused elsewhere if useful.

This Python program (xxx.py) is an application to allow you do identify and delete duplicate files on your computer:

  • Features.....


Much of the use of the application can be understood if you grok the gui. see using the GUI: Delete Duplicate File GUI

Meta Tool Bar

the meta tool bar is the button bar across the top, it performs actions ( like help ) that are about the application, like configuration, but are not part of its purpose ( like transforming clipboard contents )

draft material

  • Edit the parameter file: Use your development environment for Python or a text editor to edit parameters.py. See also: The section below, Configuration Files For Python. I have a button on the GUI for this.
  • Install: see section above.
  • Debug: see section below.
  • Quick Restart of the application: Not in this app, just shutdown and restart.
  • Use your preferred text editor. In the parameter file, see below.

More Info Here

How to Use the Parameter File

See: Configuration Files For Python

Editing of the parameters.py file

    • See above in Download and Install
  • Enable your favorite editor to work with the application.
    • self.ex_editor = r"D:\apps\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" # use r" or the backslashes will not work, or you can use forward slashes instead; they may be "wrong" in Windowd, but they work.
  • Lots of other settings:
    • Read the comments in parameters.py and change as desired. If a setting does not work let me know.
  • If you mess up.
    • Re download and get back to the original parameter file.
