I use the "Where used" function, so I can update assemblies, when I update a part that uses it.
pdm? standard version is free-ish
Don't tease, tell me more, I would like to get a PDM working for all the product variants and interdependent parts used in assembly structures.Where do I get the free-ish version for SolidWorks Standard?
that's the 'free-ish' part, i don't think it comes with SW standard....

Writing an executable with Sw explorer's capabilities but faster, i need compatibilities testing
Joel Condevaux is making a replacement for SW explorer.
If you click solidworks> rename, replace, or move from the right click context menu in windows explorer it will open up a dialog box that shows you where the file is used.
Now that is worth knowing!
I would never have thought to look there.
I can now uninstall SolidWorks Explorer, as I could never launch a found file into SolidWorks.

I wouldn't recommend that. With SW2019 and all prior versions the right-click shortcuts in Windows are only available if you have SW Explorer installed.
Point taken. You can't actually uninstall SW Explorer, there is no entry in the "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features" menu, so I've just binned the shortcuts.
