IDEA: Batch Folder>Customize>Folder Picture
« on: February 24, 2012, 03:48:07 PM »
This may already exist somewhere on the net, but as usual, knowing what terms to use in the search to find it, is the hardest part.

Select a Windows Folder right click->Properties->Customize->Folder Pictures

This allows us to use an image for the folder.

I know the Link is stored in the desktop.ini that is created

Sample .ini
[ViewState]
Mode=
Vid=
FolderType=Pictures
Logo=F:\MyImage.jpg

The idea I have is to allow this creation for multiple folders at one time, as in reality one by one will just never happen when there are more than only a small number.

In my case the folder will only contain one  .jpg but to give greater flexibility and appeal, maybe it should use the first image encountered.

If its possible to use relative paths, that would be even better as you could then move the folder without losing the image
OK it looks as though if we use
Logo=MyImage.jpg
The image is looked for in the current folder

Its possible that an earlier idea may provide a basis for this one http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=28447.0
