Altering the Software storage structure

The Software tree allows to create, rename and delete software categories.

Creating a category

To Add a category, use the option from the context menu of either an existing category or the empty area in the Software tree.

Renaming a category

Click Rename in the context menu or select the category and press F2. Type the desired name and press Enter.

Adding software

Click the Add button in the Software tree toolbar or use the appropriate option from the context menu of an existing category.

Specify the path to the installation file in the dialog box:

If the installer consists of more than one file, tick the checkbox and point to the installer folder.

Then TSD will switch to the Software editor mode (the Software editor tab is available from TSD windows main menu or by pressing Ctrl + 2).

Moving software to a category

When it's necessary to move multiple programs, select them using either your mouse or keyboard Shift and Ctrl.

Perform one of the following operations:

  • Drag the selection using your mouse and drop onto the category title;
  • Right-click one of the selected nodes and use the context menu option Move to category.

Deleting software and categories

To delete one or several programs or categories, select them and press Delete on your keyboard or use the Delete option from the context menu.

Warning! Deleting software is an irreversible operation. All the data connected to the deleted software will be permanently lost. Consult the Contents of a software folder section to find out what exactly is being deleted.

Warning! Deleting a category means all the software inside will be deleted along with it.

The Storage folder structure does not replicate the structure of categories inside the Software storage tree. Therefore, creating, deleting or renaming the files inside the Software storage folder is not advised and may lead to data loss or corruption.
