You may change the EscapeE Configuration options and keep them as your default set-up using Save, see Setting General export options. In addition, you may set up one or more "Shortcuts" with alternative configurations, each customized for a specific task. You may choose to place each of these shortcuts as an icon on your Start menu, desktop or elsewhere: see To create a special shortcut icon, below.
If you wish to run EscapeE continuously and monitor a particular folder for files with other extensions, you can add the special icon to the Windows StartUp group. See To run EscapeE continuously from startup, below.
Expert users can set other options from the command line and to do this a special icon can be created manually, with options added to the command line and the icon can then be moved to the StartUp group. See Run from the command line.
