Default [Feature suggestion] Make crawler bigger when there are a lot of files in folder

[Feature suggestion] Make crawler bigger when there are a lot of files in folder

When I open some folder where there are a lot of files the crawler becomes very little.
And if you have screen resolution 1600x1200 it is very difficult to point your mouse to very little crawler.

So I ask to make minimal size of crawler bigger then now for 3 times.

Screenshot attached.

I speak about FlashFXP and not Windows.
The crawler is in FlashFXP and not in Windows.
I don't ask to make it in Windows.
I aks to make it in FlashFXP.
And FlashFXP has its own settings for that crawler.

I make a screenshot for you from the same mirror-directory from explorer.exe, so you can more clearly understand how it will look like.

The size of the thumb is automatically sized by windows. I did some research and I came to the conclusion that it can't be sized to a custom size.

Very bad conclusion...

You can make grid lines.
You can swtich on/off columns.
But we can't change crawler

It's a windows limitation. If I'm wrong and the thumb scroller can be resized please enlighten me.

You are Developer. You said it is impossibly.

From my point of view I thought that FlashFXP has its own library (*.dll) which controls the way we see the window.
From your words it is appear that FlashFXP uses some Windows libraries to draw a window.
But FlashFXP can draw grid line. Can add extra colums. Can draw arrows when we make sorting of colums.

Also the size of crawler is connected with the size (ratio, proportion) of the window.
This is for me a very strange situation for me, nothing else.

FlashFXP does not have it's own dll that controls the way you see the window.

The window is controlled based on exported functions that allow you to modify the window and layout. Adding columns, gird lines, sort arrows, etc are all part of the control and can be modified.

I do not draw the grid lines or the columns, this is done by the control.

There was no exported function for setting the thumb scroll size that I could find.
