ICU - Icon Configuration Utility

130111_ICU_1.jpg

Current Version: v5.0 (2013-May-24)

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! :D

We combined efforts and here is the result of our labors.

Operation is easy - press "Save" to store a particular configuration and "Restore" to reset the icons to the saved positions in the selected configuration file. "Delete" allows you to remove unwanted configuration files from the list. There is a command line option so that the restoration can be run via HotKeys if required (that is why the script warns that it should be compiled for full functionality). You can decide what to do with any icons that have been added since you last saved the configuration file - the default is to put them in the top-left corner, but you can also banish them way off-screen or, more sensibly, specify a location for them.

A new feature as of ICU v3.4 is the optional Desktop Contextmenu Integration (DCI) for Win7 (Win7 only because Microsoft implemented an easy way to do this through the registry as of this release).

Version 3.3 should fix the empty save file bug

Version 3.4 Win7: Admin rights no longer needed for DCI

Version 5.0 Win8 compatibility for DCI

The source and executable can be downloaded from my site: http://www.funk.eu

Kudos to Ascend4nt, Melba23, Prog@ndy, & Valik for parts of the code.

Please let me know if you found some piece of code in the source for which I forgot to mention a credit.

Enjoy, let me know what you think of ICU and with Best Regards

Nice!

I used WinTidy for restoring desktop icons all the time but it doesn't work on Win7.

So I will try this your utility definitely.

This week it was mentioned also on Czech main technical site which is one of the most accessed sites here:

You can look at it in English trough online Google translator :-)

:D

EDIT: It's mentioned there no matter of missing Czech translation so it's great success!

Glad it comes in handy!... and nice to know it hit the czech market too :oops:. What really peaked my website's traffic was this article on lifehacker.com and this article on techline.hu, so even the bigger sites mostly only do copy&paste :D...

Hello,

thank you for this great tool.

May I raise a RFC?

I downloaded your source and added a msgbox autolose option.

In the ICU.INI I added

[Settings]
Desktop_Contextmenu_Integration=0
MsgBox_AutoClose=2

The MsgBox_AutoClose is added to all MsgBox calls.

example:

MsgBox(16 + 262144, $sGUITitle & " - Error _Save_Locations_Desktop()", "Desktop Window Handle not found.",$MsgBox_AutoClose)

Does this make sense for you?I use the ICU in an unattended way. (maybe no msgbox at all also an option when started from commandline?)

Anyway, I spread already your tool and the word. And all of the users are happy, to get a weapon against the Funny-MS-occasional-time-desktop-Icon-rearrangements now.

      Compile multiple .ico files into one .dll file
      By Inpho
      So after many weekends of battling with this I finally figured it; then I automated it.
      This script includes icon sushi (which is used to remove the 256 x 256 elements from each .ico) and RDG (to compile the icons into dll).
      I had to idiot proof this for when I inevitably forget how to do it. First GUI will ask you to choose a name (among other things) for your .dll file. Next GUI is a drag-and-drop box. Drag-and-drop your .ico files into the box and click Go. Error checking is minimal; it works fine for me but YRMV. I'm no master programmer at all but if this script can help you as much as it helped me then cool.
      Download:  ico2dll.Exe
      Known issues:
      .ico's containing any layers larger than 256 x 256 px will be ignored by icon sushi
      ico2dll only registers one drag-and-drop event so put all your required icons into one folder; then drag-and-drop them into ico2dll
      Extra info:
      Basically, the RC.exe that is included with Visual Studio doesn't seem to support 256 x 256 or larger icons when creating a resource-only .dll file. This script uses icon sushi to remove all 256 x 256 elements from your .ico files (if your icon file contains any layers larger than 256 x 256 then you will have to remove those manually through a program like gimp) before compiling them into the .dll.

      Windows 10 - Project (C)entennial apps will it work for auto IT?
      By ozmike
      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...
       
      Note  win32 apps are now called many things
      - desktop apps
      - CWA ( Classic Windows Apps - not country womens ..assoc. ) 
      - Project C(entenial) apps 
      These apps will not be sandboxed but NOT be allowed to run as admin , all files will be sandboxed installation handled through the store..
       
      blog link
      How does this affect autoit - ?
      FYI
       following as not supported in Project C apps:
      “Windows NT Services”, “Things running in the kernel” (device drivers) “System Level Software” (anything not running in the user context) “Elevation”, meaning anything that causes a standard user to get a UAC prompt “will be blocked”. Using parts of other apps in your app, at least in version 1. John indicated that they would like to support extensibility and plug-ins, just probably not initially. The implication was that this might be a direct UWA thing and not specific to Project C, but we can’t be sure.
       following as supported in Project C apps:
      “COM” “WMI” “Networking” “Anything else a standard app does that isn’t in the system space”. I am guessing that there are a lot of other things that might end up in the ‘not supported’ list that you might have thought falls under the last item in the supported list but turns out is not supported, but we just don’t know yet:
      WMI Providers Windows Timed and Triggered Events (but they can write new UWA background triggers) Custom ETW Providers COM localsystem (out of process) running as the system to avoid UAC prompts Maybe DCOM Software Clients, Application Capabilities Shell Extensions, Browser Helper Objects, and the like

      Second Desktop - secure workspace with kiosk option
      By RTFC
      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 absent; an unadvertised hotkey provides switching to the original desktop (Ctrl-Alt-Del still works, but a task manager started on the second desktop will appear on the original desktop). To enable kiosk mode, set flag $kioskmode=True in secondDesktop.au3; Security: software keyloggers running in your regular environment cannot capture keystrokes on the second desktop, and windows messages cannot be sent between desktops, so your apps won't be hijacked easily through remote control. (NB not extensively tested; use at your own risk!) In full desktop mode, the (red or green) background colour of the Switch GUI shows you whether you are on the exposed or secure desktop. I SecondDesktop.v0.8.7z (first beta release)
      Important: you'll need to compile desktopSwitch before running secondDesktop. You can test your edited version of desktopSwitch.au3 "dry," as a script on your regular desktop first, by setting its internal flag $testing=True; but don't forget to reset that flag again before compiling.

      Hiding icons/toolbar in an explorer window
      By BlazerV60
      Hello everyone!
      I'm working on a GUI that has 2 explorer windows embedded inside of it.
      Eventually I'm going to put 4 explorer windows inside of the GUI since it's convenient to have 1 program opened with 4 explorer windows embedded inside it, than having 4 seperate explorer windows opened.
      Anyway, I ran into some space problems. I'm trying to remove the icons/toolbar that appears on top of the explorer windows since they take up so much space. Here's a pic of what I mean:
       

      Here's my code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <Constants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4) Global $hMigration, $hExplHolder, $hExplorer, $hExplorer2, $sStartDir = "C:\" Global $iWidth = 800, $iHeight = 400 ;Create the Explorer GUI $hExplHolder = GUICreate("Explorer", $iWidth, $iHeight, Default, Default) Run('explorer.exe /n, "' & $sStartDir & '"') WinWait("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") ;Wait until the window appears WinSetState("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]","",@SW_HIDE) WinMove($hExplorer, "", 0, 0, 400, 400) $hExplorer = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") Run('explorer.exe /n, "' & $sStartDir & '"') WinWait("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") ;Wait until the window appears WinSetState("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]","",@SW_HIDE) WinMove($hExplorer2, "", 400, 0, 400, 400) $hExplorer2 = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") ;WinSetState($hExplorer, "", @SW_HIDE) ;WinMove($hExplorer, "", 0, 0, 400, 400) ;WinSetState($hExplorer2, "", @SW_HIDE) ;WinMove($hExplorer2, "", 400, 0, 400, 400) _WinAPI_SetParent($hExplorer, $hExplHolder) ;Puts the explorer window inside the GUI _WinAPI_SetWindowLong($hExplorer, $GWL_STYLE, -1064828928) ;Minuses the x button in the windows explorer (I think?) _WinAPI_SetParent($hExplorer2, $hExplHolder) ;Puts the explorer window inside the GUI _WinAPI_SetWindowLong($hExplorer2, $GWL_STYLE, -1064828928) ;Minuses the x button in the windows explorer (I think?) ControlListView($hExplorer, "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]", "ViewChange", "list") ControlListView($hExplorer2, "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]", "ViewChange", "list") $hList = GUICtrlCreateListView ("File", $iWidth + 4, 4, 292, 200, 0x0003 + 0x0008 + 0x0004) GUICtrlSetState (-1, 8) WinSetState($hExplorer, "", @SW_SHOW) WinSetState($hExplorer2, "", @SW_SHOW) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hExplHolder) While 1 $msg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $msg Case -3 Exit Case -13 GUICtrlCreateListViewItem (@GUI_DRAGFILE, $hList) EndSwitch WEnd How can I remove those top icons/toolbar so that there's more room for the file listing?
      Edit: Extra props to whoever can make it so that the 2 explorer windows not do the brief flash before it disappears into the GUI.
      Thanks,
      Brian
