How do I transfer my QuickJump license to a new computer?

How many licenses do I need?

Starting with version 2, QuickJump is licensed per-user. A licensed user can use the product on up to 5 devices, provided all devices are exclusively used by that user. If multiple users have access to a device where the product is installed, each user requires a license.

Does QuickJump send my folder data to TechHit servers?

QuickJump logic is client-based. Your folder names are not sent to TechHit servers.

Not all my folders are showing up in QuickJump, why?

By default, QuickJump indexes only a subset of your folders. To configure QuickJump to include other folders, click on the QuickJump taskbar notification area icon (next to the system clock), select Configure Folder Locations and use the Configure Folder Locations Window to add the folders you would like to have indexed. After you add new folders, it might take up to 10-15 minutes for them to become available in the Folder Lookup window.

Does QuickJump support network drives?

Yes, QuickJump supports network drives. Please see the question just above for instructions on how to add your network drives.

How can I add UNC locations to the included folder list?

In the Configure Folder Locations Window, hold down the Shift key while clicking on Include Folders. This will open a window where you can paste a UNC path directly, instead of the usual “Browse for Folder” dialog.

Can I use wildcard patterns to exclude folders?

Yes, QuickJump supports wildcard patterns.

How are folders sorted in the main window?

Initially, the folder list is unsorted. After you start typing search terms, the results will be sorted based on your past usage.

How do I navigate using an existing File Explorer window instead of opening a new one?

Hit Alt+D in File Explorer before invoking QuickJump.

Can I use QuickJump to copy or move files in Windows File Explorer?

  2. Hit Ctrl+C for copy (or Ctrl+X for move).
  3. Use QuickJump to open the destination folder in File Explorer.
