How to acess/move Desktop icons?

4 posts in this topic

I want to make a tool which can read data from Desktop icons (for Links: Target Directory) and move them to another place on the Desktop.

Do i have to use COM or is there a easier way? and if, what dll to use?

Any information or examples would be aprreciated.

Thx, Qsek

Do the icons store that information as metadata?

ahh thx a lot narayanjr, i've searched in the help for "link" not for "shortcut".

One Problem solved, but i still absolutely have no Plan how to move the File/Shortcut Icons on the Desktop.

There are many Programs that can do this. eg. Desktop Icon Toy

It can even make "animated Clocks" out of icons, and that with almost no flicker
