Here's a FARR alias package for it:

http://skwire.dcmembers.c...ks/DesktopShortcutter.zip

Unpack that to your FARR Installed or MyCustom folder and type goreload into FARR.  The default alias is ds and the application is designed to activate the last active window before FARR.  In other words, focus your Explorer (or any file manager) window, make your selection, activate FARR, type ds, and press enter.  Shortcuts of your selection should appear on the desktop.  Let me know how it works out for you.  Thanks.

Is it possible to add an option so that the script can be executed as an alias in FARR, and closes after the shortcut is created on the desktop?

Do you not run a main AHK script of any sort?  This is a simple hotkey that can be integrated into any AHK script.

I use Autohotkey.  Can you translate the script from AutoIt?

As tomos and cranioscopical mentioned, that is AHK code.  The AutoIt highlighter is the closest we have to an AHK highlighter.  Apologies for the ambiguity.
3255  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart (Boot Snooze) on: March 01, 2010, 08:14:47 AM
Great idea and great implementation.
Do you plan to release the source code? I understood it is written with AutoHotkey, right?
I have a password defined for my user and I have to, it's required by a remote control tool I use. I'm willing to add support for auto-login at boot myself if you do not want to do it.

Thanks for the kind words.  Boot Snooze turned out to be MUCH more popular than I ever anticipated.  No, I don't plan on releasing the source code and, yes, it's written in AutoHotkey.  I specifically didn't add auto-login for two reasons.  One, I didn't want BootSnooze seen as a security issue and, two, I'm a fan of the "one tool for one job" way of writing software.  Honestly, BootSnooze is one of the simplest apps I've written here on DonationCoder.  In case you require more information on how Boot Snooze works, here you go.

BootSnooze writes a single entry to the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

This key is meant for uses such as these since the Windows OS removes the entry once it's run, hence, "RunOnce".  The part of BootSnooze that does the suspending/hibernating is the standard Windows API call found here (this is also described in the AHK help file under the "Shutdown" entry):

http://msdn.microsoft.com.../aa373201%28VS.85%29.aspx

You can even do it yourself from the Run prompt like this:

Another option is to use the Archive hotkey or the Archive entry in the tray.
Ah yes, i'll archive right after every entry. Great tip!

Hopefully, with the latest build, you won't have to do this.  Just set your archive time to something very small...one minute or so.  The time and CPU used for an archival is negligible and shouldn't cause any hit on your system.

I even got a compliment at work because my timekeep was completly filled on time. :-)

Hahaha...very nice.   cheesy

would that mean that you might archive every 10 minutes, but you would only have one archived text file for each day if your Log timestamp doesnt include hours or minutes ?

If so sounds very good to me

Correct.

Kiss Kiss the program.  Thmbsup

It's perfect, because at work i always forget to stay up to date with what work i did for what client.

Thanks for the compliment and sorry about the delay in replying.

the only thing i have with it, is the way of archiving.

Hehehe...yeah, I know what you mean.  Grin  It's kind of tough to cover everybody's ideas regarding archiving without it becoming a huge mess of options.

when i changed the archivetime to every 10 minutes, but now i get a new file every 10 minutes.
It's in the format Log_yyyy_MM_dd_dddd[number].anu
like Log_yyyy_MM_dd_dddd[1].anu and Log_yyyy_MM_dd_dddd[2].anu and Log_yyyy_MM_dd_dddd[3].anu

isn't it possible to just append to the file if it already exists in the format.

This is actually a very elegant way to solve the issue.  Anybody else have thoughts on this?

That still doesn't solve the fact that if i enter something just before closing the PC, it will be archived the next day.
For that, perhaps you can use the timestamp of the entry to calculate the timestamp of the archivefile.
And then just append to that file.

Another option is to use the Archive hotkey or the Archive entry in the tray.  Thanks for the feedback.

I had to replace ¥`s with \`s thou :]

The yen symbols are actually backslashes on ewemoa's (and my) computer.  It's a side effect of using Japanese as the default language on a English Windows box.  I've become so accustomed to it over the years that my eyes don't even "see" them as yen symbols anymore.

If you're familiar with RegEx at all, here is a way to do it in AutoHotkey.  You could easily adapt the RegEx portion to your own code or a more capable editor that has RegEx search capabilities.

v1.0.4 build 6 - 2010-02-20
    ! Fixed graphical screwups under Win9x that were introduced in version 1.0.4 build 1.  (Thanks, Drugwash)


An old issue here - apologies if I repeat myself: since I disabled second monitor in Display Properties (doesn't exist physically anymore), Trout's main window remained at coordinates outside the now only monitor. The Options window also opens at old coordinates, far from reach.
Would it possible to add code that checks if saved window position matches the virtual screen boundaries and if not, move it somewhere inside? I know it's easy to edit the config file, but for the sake of professionalism... Wink

It's been on the ToDo forever.   cheesy

Also, after I made the corrections, I noticed the recent changes do not apply correctly on my Win98SE machine: the seekbar overlaps the info window and the volume gets overlapped by the latter; most likely you forgot to apply the changes to the Win9x part of the respective controls.  embarassed

Doh!  I actually DID have this adjusted under Win9x but I must've reverted those changes before compiling the build.  They should be fixed in the above version.  Sorry about that.

Have you thought again about making the info area a RichEdit control? I've tested the cRichEdit wrapper some time ago and it works fine in 9x - I've even posted a test script at the AHK forums, in the BASS thread [link]; should work without problems in XP+ too, I guess..

Extremely unlikely that this will happen.

I hope this is the appropriate place to make comments and suggestions.  First off, great little program .. just what I was looking for.  These are some thoughts that came to mind as I tried it out for the first time.  I hope they can be of help...

Thanks for the compliment and feedback.  Yep, this is the place for requests and suggestions.   smiley

- Tags2Folders doesn't remove its temp folder/files ($$$$$_Tags2Folders_temp) it created in the Windows temp directory.  Is this intentional?
- Doesn't maintain Created datestamps on the copied/moved files.  Could this be added.  Sometimes Created is useful when sorting/finding/organizing files.
- There's no way to pause or abort the process once started, short of hitting the big "X".  Could the 'Go' bar act as a toggle?
- Could config.ini to be changed to Tags2Folders.ini?  That way the program could exist in a directory where other programs create or read a config.ini.
- Config.ini doesn't remember Copy/Move option.  Could this be added?

v1.0.4 - 2010-02-19
    + Added option to preserver file modification times.  (Thanks, TT1)
    + Added capability to cancel file processing once started.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Copy/Move files options is now remembered between sessions.  (Thanks, TT1)
    * Changed configuration file name to Tags2Folders.ini.  (Thanks, TT1)
    ! Temp folder is removed properly now.  (Thanks, TT1)


- The program has a problem when used on a system with a different DPI setting (Rt.click on Desktop, Settings, Advanced, DPI setting, set to 120dpi).  Some of the text is partially missing. (see: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=129586)

Hmmm...I do have code in place for 120DPI boxes and it looks fine on my test VM under that DPI setting.  Would you mind posting a screenshot and I'll fix it in the next build?

- If files are already in the destination, could you skip the copy/move if filename and MD5 matches (as an option).  This might speed things up, effectively copying/moving only those files that aren't already in the destination.

I don't overwrite any existing files so they should be "skipped" already.

- Will this work with 10,000+ files (due to limited buffer space, etc.)?  I just want to make sure before I let'er rip...  ;>)

Yes, shouldn't be a problem.  The slowest part is the actual copying/moving of the files.  The tag scanning is adapted from my Trout audio player and is very fast (if I may be so bold).  I'd be curious to know how it does perform for you, though.   cheesy
