Appearance and Themes

5 posts in this topic

Ive just discovered Autoit and now I use it for everything. Its marvellous! If I had a milkman Id even leave notes for him with it.

At the moment Im writing a script to configure new computers to my companys standard. This might not strictly be an Autoit question but here goes anyway:

Does anyone know how to gain access to Folder Options, the third icon in the Appearance and Themes window? (Desk.cpl is OK for the others). What I want to do is uncheck the auto search for shared folders and printers.

Thanks

Moggles, this kind of stuff is called 'Registry Tweaking'. You make changes to the registry, by clicking or checking in a GUI. You can use RegMon from Windows to see the changes made to the registry, and you can use a RegWrite operation to apply these changes..

Should be

REG_WRITE('HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced', 'NoNetCrawling', 'REG_DWORD', '00000001')

Maybe you need to reboot. Have a look at the Folder.au3-demo from AutoIt3Lib This does what you want via gui.

Thanks dabus and Manadar, I'll give both your suggestions a try...

I usually use --Run ("Control.exe folders")-- to get to the folder options and then either keystrokes or mouseclicks. It may not be as nice. but I like it. :-)
