  1. Thank you "CoffeeFiend" for taking the time to read my post and to offer your wise suggestions.
  2. My Problem was solved on another forum and the script provided there worked perfectly! Here is the link
  3. I had forgotten my "Folder Marker.BAT" file makes the folder a system folder. How would your script be written to copy a folder to multiple directories setting the attributes of the copied folder in each directory? This is how I assign distributable custom icons to folders First I create the custom icon and copy it to a folder named "Folder Marker" where I have a system file "desktop.ini" file and a "Folder Marker.BAT file. FolderMarker.BAT @ECHO OFF echo "Enter FolderPath" set /p FolderPath= ATTRIB -h -s "%FolderPath%\FolderMarker.ico" DEL /F /Q "%FolderPath%\FolderMarker.ico" ATTRIB -h
  4. I have XP-Pro SP3 with Power Shell installed. I need a script I can drag and drop files and folders onto that will copy them maintaining the attributes of the source. Specifically most of my folders have distributable custom icons. Each folder contains both a "desktop.ini" file and an associated "FolderMarker.ico" the "desktop.ini" file points to. Both of these files have "system" and "hidden" attributes. In order for the folders to display the custom icons when copied to another computer these files have to keep the "system" attribute and I want the "hidden" attribute maintained as well.
  5. Nevermind, I figured out a way. If interested you can see how I did it here.
  6. I would like a way to toggle the enabling/disabling of FileMenu Toys by ShellExView. I would like to accomplish this by a click on a script or shortcut. Of course I know I can open ShellExView, highlight FileMenu Tools, and select disable from the context menu. I just want to do this with one click. OK so I'm lazy, I admit it!
  8. Thank you but I am aware of that option and would prefer to have the choice of deleting to or skipping the recycle bin available by the context menu.
  9. I am running XP-Pro SP2. Does anyone know how I can add an item to the context menu allowing me to delete bypassing recycle bin. I want the context menu item to give the same result as holding down the"SHIFT" key when pressing "DEL" Thank You.
  10. Sure that would have been my first choice but I don't have the hardware to adapt my laptop's drive to my Desktop PC.
  11. CPU P4 2.0GHz RAM 512MB OS XP-Pro SP2 My laptop's CD drive is missing and I can't afford a replacement. The BIOS does not support usb booting. To install XP, I first load the 6 Microsoft SP2 diskettes which then allow me to install XP from the XP Setup CD in my external usb CD drive. I would like to be able to restore my C drive partition from an image created using Macrium Reflect. To do this I need to be able to boot BartPE from a CD drive. How can I make a diskette allowing me to to boot into BartPE, or other utilities, from my external usb CD drive? Thank you.
  12. Thanks for checking out what I said and for the "My Bad". I learned from you how to deal with things I have posted incorrectly. I found I couldn't delete the posts. So in the future I will replace the incorrect text with a "N/M". BTW what does "N/M" stand for? Now as for my "ContextMenuHandlers" request, I thank everyone who has taken the time to offer their help and suggestions. From the information presented here I can see making my own "ContextMenuHandler" requires a much greater knowledge of programming than the meager amount I possess. Rather than attempt to gain the necessary knowledge,
  13. This cannot be done that way, you'll need to use the shell, not the shellex. shellex\ContextMenuHandlers is for using a CLSID to specify a DLL that in turn creates the context menu entry programmatically. This pic shows a normal shellex entry. Not sure what you are on about in your last post, you already know how to create a shell entry, you just don't know you know it. The only reason your first shell entry failed is because your batch file cannot use .scf files, not because the registry was done wrong. Capisce? ------------------------------------------------------- Want to bet I can
  14. ------------------------------------------------------ Check to see which file format or character encoding your text editor is set to. When mine is set to Unicode and the BAT files are saved that way they don't work. Did you copy this text: [shell] Command=2 IconFile="C:\Program Files\Show Desktop\Show Desktop.ico" [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop amd save it as "Show Desktop.scf" in a folder named "Show Desktop" in your "Program Files Folder"? You can save it anywhere you want, but the BAT file must be coded with the correct path to "Show Desktop.scf" example: start "" "
  15. I have XP-Pro SP2 (x86) and XP-Pro SP3 (x86) on my laptop and desktop respectively. How can I add a subkey to the "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers" key? I want to add "Show Desktop" to the "Background context menu"as I have done for the "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell" and the "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell" Registry keys. But this failed. I am thinking I have to make my own "ContextMenuHandlers" subkey because the subkeys there such as the one below do add items to the Background Context Menu "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Ne
