Do you know how to control the size/position of the icon inside?

2
I didn't try yet the new ImagesToIcon,
but I did some tests, and I figured out that, if you edit the desktop.ini file within the created folder, you will be able to move/rename the created folder as you wish.
You need just to remove the path part like this:
From
[.ShellClassInfo]
IconResource=D:\Some\Path\FolderIcon.ico,0
to
[.ShellClassInfo]
IconResource=FolderIcon.ico,0

Another thing to add, a suggestion, you can make 2 checkboxes:
[ ] Create a folder
[ ] Create a FolderIcon.ico

If user check the both 2 checkboxes, it means you need to create 2 icons:
1 hidden icon for the new created folder, within the folder like the file desktop.ini
and
1 not-hidden icon as FolderIcon.ico

It's always better to have an open-source code, for customization.

3
Now that I'm thinking about it,
there are some cases that the user needs only the icon, without applying it on a chosen folder, like if he wants to use the icon in Classic Explorer Bar of Classic Shell.
So I think that this progam should only create an icon. (and not trying to apply it on a chosen folder)

4
As you have already understood, the new icon will consist of three layers.
1. Folder png [256x256]
2. User Image [Resized to: ???][I don't know what's default. It will be advanced if the user will able to decide on resize and location X Y Z]
3. Flip png [256x256]

I think it will be better to give the user the default folder pngs: 1. and 3.
so that he will be able to replace the 1. and 3. layers with other folders templates.

Yes. How the result should look:
Take any image you want, place it in a folder, and renamed it to: Folder.jpg (or Folder.gif).
Now, you can see the desired result.

The problem with this method is - it works only for Thumbnails view. It won't work for Details view.

@skrommel
1. You can find Folder and Filp icons in Icons.zip I had attached, or you can extract from imageres.dll.
2. There still issues:
a. The Folder created, created in the Root (D:\), and not for the chosen folder.
b. There is a problem with the resolution of the result. It should be 256x256 for Extra Large Thumbnails view.

There is a question to be asked:
Where is better to save and load the image icon from:
- Within the chosen folder - Each folder has its icon.
or
- Dedicated icons folder of User - One icon for multiple folders.

IMO, you will have to use the second method, to load the icon from a "Dedicated icons folder of User", because if you will put the icon within the folder, it will no longer work when the folder path will changed/renamed.

Hi,
There were some issues:
1. I think it doesn't support unicode. I have unicode in my paths.
2. It needs to put a image in a folder, and not to change the whole folder icon to other image (can be done by properties > customize).
3. When you Rename the folder name, the image is lost. It is not happening when you using properties > customize.

I think it will better if:
The result will be:
256x256
FolderIconWithPicture.png
or
FolderIconWithPicture.ico
because the user must save the icon somewhere in his computer.
I for example, have an Icons folder for these tasks.

I'm using W7.
Look at these folders icons:
https://terraromaste...iantart.com/gallery/
https://acidcrashlv....iantart.com/gallery/

Do you think is it possible to make a program that:
1. Take (load) any picture (png, bmp, jpg, ico ...)
2. Creating a folder icon with this picture inside.

I think the default Windows folder icon is located here:
C:\Windows\system32\imageres.dll
(zip attached)

The result will be:
256x256
FolderIconWithPicture.png
or better
FolderIconWithPicture.ico

Thank You DK2IT for your post. I've seen it but didn't have the time to test till now.
I tested MouseImp & DragToScroll.
DragToScroll is better than MouseImp, IMHO. But still has bugs and need to be improved.
I posted here:

It has the same problems as described above (except the popup balloons).

I do not know if it's the right way, but maybe some of the cases can be solved by using: WinKey+UpArrow

I don't know if this info can help developers to find a Bypass.
I've noticed Magnifier has "turn on color inversion" option.
http://windows7theme...colors-in-windows-7/
Maybe you can set magnifier to 100% and control its Opacity.

Hi BigVent,
Sorry for the huge delay... (I didn't get a notification about your reply to my email)
I checked today the script, and it's realy awesome. Very helpful, thank you very much.

There are only few improvments should be done:

1. There are few cases of unwated maximizing, like:
  • When restoring a window from "Minimize to tray", shouldn't be maximized.
  • In opening Properties of file/folder (Alt+Enter).
  • Dialog-box of WinRar extracting.
2. Popup Baloons of icon tray should be removed.

Thank you, Stamimail

Unicode Image Maker? Are you sure?
Is it planned to be fixed on (in the program itself) future version?

Hi, I tesed sClose on XP ans W7 VMs. It works good but still not perfect.
I saw that right now it does only "Close All Windows".
I found 2 problems:
1. Word - when there are not-saved documents and you trying to close, sClose stops in not-saved documents and doesn't close the rest documents and apps windows.
2. sClose couldn't close Everything.exe app in W7. (in XP it could. I don't know why..). here is the dialog box in W7:
http://www.freeimagehosting.net/azqwl

In all cases CloseAll worked good. http://www.ntwind.co...ities/close-all.html
Look at the behaviour of CloseAll.

BTW, I don't know if it would be helpful, but look also at HotkeyP commad: window --> Information
Information
Shows title, class, process, priority of a foreground window. On Win2000/XP also shows memory allocated for that process.

and there isn't a useful piece of code [in open source] doing this, as a start?

Hello, Thank You.
I looked at:
http://powerpro.cres...ownload/powerpro.pdf Actions for the *Window command
http://www.skynergy....keyz/help/index.html 3.5.3 Desktop Window

I didn't find the features I want.  :(

I've been refused already in other forum...

Still, I think it a great Idea.

Possible?  :Thmbsup:

There is this app:
http://www.ntwind.co...ities/close-all.html

Since the Developer has no time to improve it I need a new app will deal with closing Windows, and enable various options of closing:
•   Close All - close all windows (would behave like this: http://www.ntwind.co...ities/close-all.html)
•   Close App - would close all windows of current app (all windows of Word/IE/Windows Explorer etc).
•   Close Group - would close all windows of current Group (By using RaMMicHaeL's 7+ Taskbar Tweaker you can group different apps windows to 1 group in Taskbar).
•   Close all windows except current Window (would close everything except the active window)
•   Close all windows except current app (Example: If I want to close all windows except all the windows of Windows Explorer app)

Closing all Tabs / Except current Tab - I'm not using Tabs, so I don't know. Mmm, Maybe In Word - to close all documents but leave Word app open.

A new EXE program would be welcom, but even to implement those great features in HotkeyP (http://sourceforge.net/projects/hotkeyp/ ; [Add] Commands --> Window --> Close window) I will be grateful.

Possible?  :Thmbsup:

The letters I typing in TextBox are not Hebrew. There is a BUG.
Also. I think I can't write in Hebrew and English aligments in the same TextBox (LTR and RTL).
