Needs resize after setting the attribute. Try something like ShellFolderFix who automatically resizes all Explorer windows (and remembers their positions). I use it anyway. Alternatively I can add a command to resize by 1 px after each attribute change.

Ok, works for new windows that don't have it, but it doesn't seem to work when I navigate to a new folder.

Works for me nearly always, even without ShellFolderFix. I use the option @open each folder in a new window" and without a tree. Maybe because of that.

New folders (not resized by ShellFolderFix:

Yeah, I open folders in the same window, so I bet that's it.

Try to reboot. After reboot I even cannot reproduce this problem no matter how I try. Maybe the contents of some windows is cached.

Hmm, maybe. This was a problem I had with Zero Dump as well, so that could be it. I'll post back when I find out.

Hey Anixx, is there any chance you could post up the source of those AutoHotKey scripts?

Thanks.

Regarding the border issue, rebooting didn't seem to work. You say you're not getting the problem at all then? And you are opening folders in the same window? I wonder why it's not working for me. Like I said, whenever I open a new folder in the same window, the border just disappears.
