Task based queuing for




The files list details the files to be processed in the queue. Files will be processed in the order shown (without filtering or sorting applied) if processing order is set to None. Files can be reordered by dragging and dropping them to a new row.


Add or remove files

It is possible to simply drag and drop files into the Files area from Windows Explorer. Alternatively, you can add to the list using the Add Folder(s) or Add File(s) buttons to add a folder of files, or individual files respectively.

Files can be removed from the list by selecting the file(s) to remove and pressing the Delete key on your keyboard, or using the right click menu and selecting Remove from list. The Trash button can be used to remove all files from the list.

The Add Folder(s) button will display a new window. Here you can specify the folder to add and select from the displayed options:


Option Description
Include sub-folders Searches all sub-folders recursively if checked, otherwise only searches the specified folder
Include hidden files Includes all hidden files in the search if checked
Filter types Specifies the types of files to add (at least one file type must be selected)
