What behaves like a folder in OOPS

System folders and their identification

  • Hello,
    I have the "problem" that my system folders My Pictures, My Music and My Videos are still in the reg as such. But they are no longer displayed with the corresponding icons by XP. What can you do? Thanks.

  • Hello Mixe2003.

    With the Tweak UI tool from MS you can hide your own files. Did you use this tool?
    When you start Movie Maker and save a project (doesn't have to be a movie) the "My Videos" folder is created automatically. It is the same with the media player. Copy a song from CD and the folders are there again.

    Furthermore, the folders are not system folders. System folders are hidden and you can make them visible in the folder options. Did you mark it as hidden in the properties of the folder?

    Greetings Peter

  • Hello and thanks,

    the folders are all there. Only the special icons for these folders are missing on the display in Explorer or in Start / My Music. As with all other folders, the icons look bare.
    greeting

    If that's all for you, right-click on one of these folders, then Properties, then Customize tab and then another icon below. There is then a list with various Windows folder symbols. But you can also use any other ico.

    the name says it all, like no, just joke

    but I think what you are proposing is only possible with shortcuts .. that means .. under XP I know that at all .. I probably travel my mouth too far again here: oops:

    But you can create a desktop.ini file in the sys folder, which could then contain the following information:

    1. [.ShellClassInfo]
    2. IconFile = shell32.dll
    3. IconIndex = 20

  • but I think what you are suggesting is only possible with shortcuts ..


    NO, it works with EVERY folder - on EVERY hard drive. So please don't unsettle people if you don't even know what it's like with XP, even if you've just gnawed at the joke bone.

    Ast, that's the way to proceed with pomposity who bring absolute nonsense as so-called "assistance".
