FileSelectFolder - Windows 7 and later new window type

Reported by: ALIENQuake <alienquake@…> Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


When one of the tool that I use ask me to select specific directory, it popups "Browse For Folder" window, which looks like this:

but in Windows 7 there is another window type, which looks like this:

Is there any way to use this new window type instead of old one?

Very good question. I think this may be better off in the forum rather than on trac though.

There is a C# solution here:

In terms of doing it from AutoIt: MS changed superseded all the old api call dialogs with objects, so now the file open/save dialogs both inherit from IFileDialog. My guess is that the new folder select dialog is the same.

I'll have a look later tonight hopefully and get you an AutoIt example.

I already asked about this:

Many thanks for you reply, the example for AutoIt would be great!
