Listing folder below the "This PC" folder in windows 10 explorer view - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Hopefully  quick question.

I want to detect if my Phone is connected to my computer, and was thinking I could just query the list of folders under the "This PC" items in the Explorer Treeview.

 

If my device shows up, then its connected, simple.

 

However, I cannot find any resources online on how to return this list of items? Has anyone done something similar before?

 

Thanks in advance, Sandy

I've figured out a way to check if my phone is connected:

 

$PhoneConnected = False
$vObjWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2")
$vObjItems = $vObjWMI.ExecQuery('SELECT * FROM Win32_USBHub')
If IsObj($vObjItems) Then
    For $vObjItem In $vObjItems
        If StringInStr($vObjItem.Description, 'SAMSUNG Mobile USB Composite Device') <> 0 Then $PhoneConnected = True
    Next
EndIf

 

Would still like to find out how to list the items under the "This PC" view though, anyone?

I have worked on this awhile back, so here an alternative to your solution :

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

Local $oShellApplication = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
Local $oShellFolder = $oShellApplication.NameSpace(0x11)
Local $oShellFolderItems = $oShellFolder.Items()
For $oFolder in $oShellFolderItems
  ConsoleWrite ($oFolder.name & @CRLF)
  If $oFolder.name = "Moto G Play" Then ExitLoop
Next
Local $oRoot = $oFolder.GetFolder
Local $oRootItems = $oRoot.Items()
For $oSource in $oRootItems
  ConsoleWrite ($oSource.name & @CRLF)
  If $oSource.name = "Carte SD" Then ExitLoop
Next
$oRoot = $oSource.GetFolder
$oRootItems = $oRoot.Items()
For $oSource in $oRootItems
  ConsoleWrite ($oSource.name & @CRLF)
  If $oSource.name = "DCIM" Then ExitLoop
Next
$oRoot = $oSource.GetFolder
$oRootItems = $oRoot.Items()
For $oSource in $oRootItems
  ConsoleWrite ($oSource.name & @CRLF)
  If $oSource.name = "Camera" Then ExitLoop
Next
$oRoot = $oSource.GetFolder
$oRootItems = $oRoot.Items()
For $oSource in $oRootItems
  ConsoleWrite ($oSource.name & "/" & $oSource.IsFolder & "/" & $oRoot.GetDetailsOf ($oSource,2) & @CRLF)
Next
