And if possible could they be in the same place as they are on the real desktop?

If you don't need to do this every time the script runs you could:

1. Take a screenshot of your desktop and crop out any extra crap.

2. Embed this picture in a gui background

3. Place invisible buttons over each icon

Bam! Fake desktop.

Something like this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <A3LListView.au3>
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

You will need to install the A3LLibrary from here.

What for you need to display these buttons? and the buttons are not small, its the image that small :)

they arnet labled and not all pics show

Label can be added along with the image, search on forum for +image +label - about the all pics... yes, this is a problem, i do not know realy how to get icons from «My Computer» and such elements (the function _GetFileIcon isn't myne btw, i only have make some changes in it).

how would i see all the files in ALL prgrams in start menu in a listview

You need to read the Start Menu >> Programs directory to array, and then just create an LV item for each element ;) (see my previous post ho i did it with the desktop icons, only here you will need to read files to array).

Ashley, is this for ShellOS? If so, it wouldn't be a very good feature, its your own OS, the user wanted a new OS, and your implementing it more like there old OS. :)
