1  DonationCoder.com Software / DC Member Programs and Projects / Moving ICONS within Desktop folders in Windows 7/8 on: September 17, 2014, 07:59:47 PM
I have just written 2 programs to address following problem:
FileDate_Order (& WinFileSequ) facilitates the ordering of icons in desktop folders on Windows 7/ (and Vista) when the window is set to order by Modification Time (descending).

Windows 7/ does not allow normal re-positioning of icons in a desktop Window, by simply dragging icons from one position to another, - A feature available in every previous version of Windows!.
Since it is MUCH easier to locate icons quickly within large desktop folders, if they are ordered by function and personal preference, I find this utility (containing 2 programs) is extremely useful.

The program can automatically SEQUENCE the Date/Time stamp for each file (icon) in a Window.
The program facilitates icon placement (i.e. moving icons), also offers substitution of link files for sub-directories, and can insert "Space" links for blank positions.

The program can also create "LOG" files (recording files & modification date/times) for each Window to allow fast export. Importing from LOG file will amend file-dates for all icons and reset icon order.

Last update (Drag&Drop to Viewer now implemented) completed 28/09/14
If anyone out there can suggest improvements to function of ahk program, it would be very welcome!

Available for download at: http://twm.dcmembers.com/

Modified  on 30/11/14:Both programs should cope with screen resolutions: (Aspect ratio 3 X 4)
1024 X 768, 1152 X 864, 1280 X 1024, with normal dpi (96 dots per inch) or
increased type size: 125% & 150%.

Also available on that site is CLIPSTAC program, much improved and more powerful than original modified Clipstep program. It now combines 2 Clipboard extension Apps, which work well together.
This one works well (so far). It now Auto-configures itself, and includes detailed help file ( & Rt-click hints on buttons etc). Any thoughts would be welcome.

To FSL

Sorry about delay getting back on this topic
I Tried IconRestorer which works well for Desktop icons.
My problem was that to keep Desktop uncluttered, most program icons grouped in Folders located on the Desktop. These folders contain a large no. of icons, and each Folders' icon arrangement needs to be saved/restored.
My current approach is a bit hit&miss.
Perhaps what Im looking for isnt possible?

Ive noticed with several Vista-32 systems that icon layout INSIDE folders on the desktop is often reset to alphabetical order (after program install etc).
Since these folders can contain numerous icons it is tedious to restore correct layout.

I now have created a REG save/restore on two keys:

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-913379744-1625067961-1115525842-1000\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

&

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-913379744-1625067961-1115525842-1000_Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

It doesnt always work on the newest folder, and key:
S-1-5-21-913379744-1625067961-1115525842-1000
is specific for a given Vista system

Surely others would appreciate a proper icon position RESTORE, which extends inside folders.

any veiws?

CLIPSTEP BUGFIX:
Under WIN_Vista, the CLIPSEEK button: "Shortcut to Desktop" is now corrected.
Many other bugfixes

Major Update as of August 13, 2009
Further update for VISTA (Slow system)  August 15, 2009
Bugfix on August 30, 2009.

Some of the necessary console Apps in "filscrpt_A", and "filscrpt_B" can
be downloaded and MUST be placed in clipstep subdir "!filsript".
Both zips contain this directory, so unzip to clipstep directory.

Ive checked properties (from XP) for Documents and settings, and
can only see attributes where Hidden is checked and greyed out,
and under "Advanced", Archive and Index Attributes.

There is also "Network sharing and Security" under "Sharing" Tab.
I havent found "Relocation" option.

My  idea is to delete all Vista dirs and unzip different version from ZIPed Backups. My program normally deletes and unzips systems automatically,- but cannot delete Vista "Documents and Settings" and "ProgramData"

I still find it impossible to delete "Documents and settings" and "users" directories from the Vista partition, while running XP.
mstTotalAccess Pro doesnt seem to resolve the problem.

The directory attributes that I can change do not make directories deletable.

Can anyone explain this?

Apologies for missing the reply from Ianux128 - I dont normally check this topic.

I am attaching latest bugfix:
    Corrected App identification.
    Corrected for ini setting "persist_fast=2" which avoids refilling
    Label-list each time [Shift]-F5 is pressed

Includes help file "README.TXT" explaining operation.
If README.TXT is opened in an Editor and subscript is run,
(press [Shift]-F5), the subscript table should appear listing all
"Headings" (Labels) and other options. Selecting a table entry should
cause the Editor to search for the selected label.

RE:   CLIPSTEP (ClipSeek)

Small mod to improve Vista operation for cleaner display

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Further to last posting, I am now attaching the LATEST modified CLIPSTEP and NEW CLIPSEEK
programs.

CLIPSTEP is a modified version of Skrommel's Clipstep, which is a clipboard extension app
which only uses [Control]+v and [Control]+c and [Control]+x to allow clips to be stored as
.CLIP files, and allows selection of stored clips for Re-Pasting. It is now modified to work
with CLIPSEEK, a new program (modified form of Seek from Phi) which has two different modes
of operation:

CLIPSEEK CLIP Mode:
  - Displays large table of clipboard CLIPs and shows Clip content
  - Predefine a Permanent directory for preconfigured applications to store clips
  - Allows Selection criteria to preselect clips to be displayed, many modes offered
  - Provides alternative Pasting options and other functions
  - Can add comments to individual clips, mark clips to preserve/display at top of list
  - Copy/Cut/Paste Selected block of clip-content from and to clip files

CLIPSEEK Directory Mode:
  - Displays (Recursed) list of files (and directories), shows file contents/properties/icons
   for common file-types and common grahics. (uses external programs detailed in help file)
  - Allows Selection criteria for filename AND/OR contents to preselect files to be displayed,
   many modes offered.
  - Can preconfigure settings for Active programs/Apps/extensions, which are automatically
   selected by ClipSeek when run, or can be manually selected, once .ini is configured.
  - Various display, selection and sort options
  - Allows files to be run (if File association exists)/ or Directories to be selected.
  - Allows listing of Apps (Link files etc) in StartMenu and StartMenuCommon, to search for
   and run required application.
  - Can allow MS Word (2000) Document files to be listed with block of contents, on which
   Selective search can restrict list, to aid in file selection, and run MSWORD with
   selected file(s).

Excuse the errors if there are any. It all works fine on my system.

I have now re-downloaded and installed mst TotalAcess and it seems to work perfectly.

Many thanks for all the help! - especially to Merleone for suggesting
mst TotalAccess.
23  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Need help with Vista Backup on: May 17, 2008, 11:15:42 PM
I have now experimented with mstTotalAccess Pro but so far it doesnt resolve the problem - I only used the trial program, to see if it worked.
I have contacted mst to get their advice on this.
24  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Need help with Vista Backup on: May 16, 2008, 09:23:55 AM
Many thanks for the info.
I use the same username (as administrator) across the platforms, but I guess system security retricts access.

I will try to check out mstTotalAccess Pro and XYplorer and see if I can manually perform zip backup/restore first.
25  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Need help with Vista Backup on: May 15, 2008, 08:37:01 PM
I have been developing a program to backup complete XP / 98 windows systems
to a large dedicated partition for zip backups.
Now that I have installed Vista (multiboot system) in a partition, I find it impossible to zip/delete & unzip the vista "Documents and Settings" & "Users" directories from within the XP C: drive.

Can anyone suggest a way to unlock these directories from within XP, or suggest a program that has got round the problem??
