  1. ICU - Icon Configuration Utility Current Version: v6 (2018-Sep-16) Restore your desktop when the icons get "rearranged". Melba23 and I found we were working on very similar ideas to restore the Desktop icons to their normal place if they became "rearranged" ( ). Vista seems to like this doing on occasion just for fun - but we all know some apps and games which change the display resolution or move icons around. This annoys "tidy" people who like their desktops arranged "just so" - I am particularly thinking of this desktop when I say that! We combined efforts an
  2. Hi, guys! I'm new with using Autoit. Is possible do an automation to an application desktop java using Autoit?
  3. Hi, when I call a MsgBox function I can use a "$MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION" flag so it will be displayed "on the current active desktop, even if there is no user logged on to the computer.". That works just great. Is there a way to do the same to Autoit GUI Form so it will be visible on desktop even if running from system account and user is not logged?
  4. Windows Desktop Dimmer / Shade Are your eyes being blinded by the bright white light leaping from your screen and burning your retinas out? Yeah, so were mine. So I looked for ways to adjust this, but each thing had its limitations. - LCD brightness adjustments: Yes, this is the obvious choice. But there's two problems: The monitor emits a high pitched noise (common with LCD dimming) In different scenarios, brighter is better (games, movies). And what a pain to constantly adjust! - Graphics Card software adjustments: Pain in the ass, often inconsistent, and might ruin contrast, wash out
  5. I am trying to create a script to clean up users' desktops by moving all desktop folders and files (except the two hidden "desktop.ini" files and a MyDesktop.lnk shortcut) to a different folder. The script below will move files but not folders. The other issue with the script is that it doesn't seem to execute from a location other than the user's desktop. I would appreciate any suggestions. #include <File.au3> MsgBox(64, "Desktop", "Cleaning up Desktop. This box will close in 4 seconds.", 4) $Files = _FileListToArray(@DesktopDir,"*",1)
  6. Hey hello. I came here with maybe too specific questions about uncommon things, but as people says, I don't lose anything trying to asking here There's long time that I have a little "experimental" idea: Use windows desktop and it icon system like old videogame consoles (where "sprites" are used to draw things on screen, can be manipulated/animated to make interesting things happen). Some of that inspiration came from another experiments from demoscene. Researching the possibilities of doing something like that (maybe not so intense) I found that the Windows Desktop us
  7. Hi, How can i make function _ExplorerGetSelectedItems get selecteds items on the Desktop? Func _ExplorerGetSelectedItems($sCabinetWClass="[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") Local $Ret = "" Local $aIndexes, $sSelected, $sSelected_Path Local $hSearch, $sCurrentFile $sSelected_Path = ControlGetText($sCabinetWClass, "", "Edit1") ConsoleWrite($sSelected_Path&@CRLF) $aIndexes = StringSplit(ControlListView($sCabinetWClass, "", "SysListView321", "GetSelected", 1), "|") If $aIndexes[0] =
  8. Hello one and all. I am creating a toolbar which reserves 40 pixels of the right-hand side of the screen by updating the "Desktop Work Area" via _WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo, so windows maximize up to it, much like the old Office Toolbar. All worked great, new windows would maximize up to the new border, but existing maximized windows were a problem. Initially I created a slightly noddy function utilising a combination of WinList and WinMove to find any visible maximized windows and adjust them accordingly. While this worked ok, I didn't like it as it felt a bit, well, noddy. I then di
  9. Hey could be interesting to the AutoIt devs out there Will win32 apps (autoit apps) work in the new windows 10 store? Early days yet won't be in the initial win 10 release...

FYI following as not supported in Project C apps: “Windows NT Services”,“Things runnin
  10. Two tiny, simple scripts (secondDesktop & desktopSwitch) that elaborate (slightly) on _WinAPI_CreateDesktop() to create a second workspace with some interesting features: Startup: define any number of programmes to be auto-started on the second desktop, hard-coded (by you, in desktopSwitch.au3) or parsed as parameters (from secondDesktop.au3);Full desktop mode: provides acccess to all your desktop shortcuts, start menu (Win7), taskbar, plus a one-button switch in both desktops;Kiosk mode: provides an empty workspace where only your designated startup entries will run; Switch button/GUI is
  11. I'm trying to make a desktop wallpaper application with video support. But stuck at z-order. Any suggestions? How to put autoit window before desktop listview? I'm currently attaching window to the WorkerW. also tried the $HWND_BOTTOM const of _WinAPI_SetWindowPos but when i apply this, win goes invisible. no luck yet any help will be appreciated
  12. Spotlight + Focus GUI's This is the latest experiment dealing with screen-dimming and focus. The spotlight effect works by dimming the entire screen except the small 'spotlight' area where the mouse is, so that you can focus on and read/work on that area with less eyestrain. Its a work in progress, however I've added some tweaks to it to make it a bit more interesting (and potentially useful!). In my experiments, the Spotlight and Focus GUI's are pretty nice when used in combination with RedShiftGUI (portable version here), an eyestrain-relieving color temperature shifter, or my >Wind
  13. My first project outside of work Since I have literally hundreds of games and programs installed on my pc, even using the start menu can get me lost when looking for a specific thing. With this, you can drag/drop any file or shortcut onto the GUI. Then you can open any file from the convienient GUI sitting on your desktop. 5 different "tabs" or lists allow you to sort and organize your files to make them easier to find when your lists get long. Latest Version<-11/8/13 (or 8/11/13 for the European people) You can get the included help file here for a more indepth look at w

  17. I started this a couple of months ago and figured that maybe others would like to contribute or just criticize whatever does it for you. I'm having to start from scratch and re-research everything but if someone has some code to contribute or ideas please share them. Everyone else start coding like freaking crazy. For those lost on the subject please lookup emerge desktop as some of it may be incorporated into this version. It won't be if I can help it though. To get some conversation started what features are the most desired? Should (AutoIt Desktop Shell) be the name? Ideas? Regi
  18. Been stuck in this for a day now. As far as i know, the desktop's a syslistview32 control, where icons on the desktop is items, right?

  19. Hello everybody, this is my first post and I'm quite new to the world of AutoIt. I already manage to change programmatically my desktop background via this one-liner: DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SystemParametersInfo", "int", 20, "int", 0, "str", $CmdLine[1], "int", 0) (via drag 'n' drop of the desired wallpaper onto the compiled script). However, this code does even too much for my needs. In fact I have another software that changes the desktop but, for some unknown-to-me reasons, fails to send the WM_SETTINGCHANGE message (I can see the key HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper g
