I feel like the Vifm client for Windows 10 is a bit slow so I'm wondering if instead (like on Linux) I can use the Terminal of choose. On both Linux and Windows I use Alacritty, and on Linux I can write "vifm" and it starts Vifm in the terminal. However, on Windows 10 this doesn't work.
I'm not great on Windows, so this could be something simple like I need to add it to my path or whatever, but I'm not sure. Does anyone here know?
How exactly it doesn't work? Is there an error message? Is Vifm available through %PATH%? I wanted to install Alacritty to test it, but it just aborts on startup. Vifm can work in ConEmu for example and anything else that hosts Windows-native console applications. I don't know how Alacritty works, but I'd expect it to be the same as ConEmu and others.
Sorry for the late reply!
I added Vifm like this to my %PATH% environment: C:\Software\Vifm, and inside that folder the vifm.exe is stored (the path looks correct as that is how my NeoVim path also looks and that one works).
However, when I try to call vifm in alacritty it just says the "Command doesn't exist", the even stranger part is that it works in "Windows PowerShell", but no in any other terminal I'm using.
I was mostly hoping someone else was also using Alacritty and was running into the same problem.
You might want to check the value of %PATH% inside Alacritty. Also try running Vifm using full path C:\Software\Vifm\vifm.exe just to make sure it works.

It was my %PATH% that was wrong, I changed that and restarted my PC and it started working. :)
%PATH% - Had to be updated with the correct path to the Vifm folder!
