Hello @HiBitSoftware! Can you give us an option to batch hide items from the list? Like, I have all these VCRedist installed, which is cluttering the Hibit installed apps list. If I want to hide them, I have to do it one by one which takes some time. So the ability to batch hide all the unnecessary ones would be a good feature.

Yeah.

And batch choose when it comes to uninstall store apps. Now one has to choose them one by one. So a - select all or none would be handy. At least.

@SecureKongo I never heard of HiBit. Should I use it for uninstalling major and well-known software e.g. Snagit?
It's an uninstaller that you can use for any software. It detects leftovers of uninstallations that the Windows integrated uninstaller would miss. I personally use it for months now and it works very well. (y)

It has a whole bunch of tools and functions in addition to the uninstaller and remnant scanner. It can remove junk files (CCleaner still finds 10-15 MB more on here but anyway), force uninstall, installation monitoring for better remnant removal, context menu manager, etc.

It can do much more than just uninstall programs, though that's what I use it for.

This is software that you will notice its versatility after opening the menu. Until recently, I thought it was just an uninstall software.:)🗑️

Hello @HiBitSoftware! Love the new release. With user's consent the portable version is now 100% portable, so my settings will survive even after a Windows reinstallation. Thanks for this (y)
Can you add an ignore list even for the "Common Cleaner" section of "Junk File Cleaner"?
Weirdly, the game Forza Horizon 5 creates its optimization data in a folder in the Temp directory. The size of the files in that particular folder is about 1 GB. If the files are deleted then the game starts optimizing again when launched creating this 1 GB data again which takes about 5-7 minutes. So I can't afford to delete those files.
HiBit currently don't seem to have an option to put anything of the common cleaner section to an ignore list. The possibility of selecting/delecting items using CTRL or Shift key is also not possible. So, it would be nice if you can add this feature.

Edit: You may even add something like CCleaner has. A global Exclude list to make things simple.

@HiBitSoftware Found a bug. After uninstalling, if the uninstalled app asks for a system restart and I restart the system before letting HiBit do Advanced Cleanup (which everyone should do in such case) then HiBit automatically launches after restart to continue with Advanced Scan.
But with this latest update the HiBit that launches after a system restart is the default one in default settings in white theme without promting for Advanced Scan. z.png
If I close that and manually launch HiBit then it loads with my settings and the Advanced Scan windows comes up like it used to do before this update.
I'm using HiBit portable.
