Here's something interesting.  Following a post I found on ahk forum, hitting Windows-d key to minimize all windows sets desktop to WorkerW. I tried it and it shows in the spy. Seems to create a new folder then too.  So unless somebody has evidence it's broke, I assume it's "working as designed" now. :)

Strange goings on.

Ok I've taken another approach.  The download now includes 7FolderLite.exe including source. It does not use the class name at all to limit the hotkey. Use it as last resort in cases where the Desktop class name is not predictable.

Not at all.  I got some feedback on other boards.  Mainly because someone was using a highly customized shell.  Rather than chase around I figured I'd just include one with no class distinctions(pun intended.)  :)

I appreciate the feedback you gave earlier. It was very helpful. :)
