Windows 7: Is it possible to have icons of 32px and their name BELOW?

This code fixes the issue with affecting table and list modes. Now it applies the change only if the mode is small icons (32 px and below).

Code:
SendMessage, 0x108F,,,SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%

If (ErrorLevel=0x2){

Control, Style, +0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%
Control, Style, -0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%

}

Wow, I've been missing out on here!

Sorry I've been gone for a while. My hard drive crashed, and I've been working on fixing that (been using Linux for the past couple of weeks until I was able to get a new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate).
But I gotta say I'm glad you figured out how to do this without having to set every folder view to desktop mode. That makes this much more convenient and practical. I'm surprised that this works so well. Amazing work as usual! Now if only there were a simple way to select 32x32 icons as a view mode.

Refreshing the folder view will also revert the labels to the bottom. This is kind of an annoyance though.

Haven't noticed this, but I guess I really haven't tested this that much yet either. The biggest folder I've tested this in is System32. And when I have briefly seen the labels on the right, it was only for a fraction of a second.

Why? Only groupping and manual sorting does not work with desktop mode.

Yes, we need a shortcut. But note that it will work well only with desktop mode because switching views while using the second method does not put labels below unting folder closed and opened anew.

To refresh it one has to catch the event of the change of the view. I think it is impossible with AHK.

But with desktop mode there is even not a fraction of a second.

The code works with Folder Options X installed and "Enable icon reordering" checked!

All my folders are now back to 32px icon size. Icons are crystal sharp again. This is sweat!

I don't see any delay, folder browsing is instantaneous just like it used to be in Windows Explorer @ WinXP.

Now, how to make it work without installing Folder Options X? Is it possible?

Yes, it is possible with editing registry instead, modifying the fflags values in the bags, then "apply to all folders" and the stuff similar to what you already tried. Folder Options X does exactly this: modifies the registry values for all folders.

Try the attached two reg files if you want to do this without Folder Options X. But note that this will be less reliable method, for instance it will not work on zip folders and some other special folders.


Attached Files
File Type: reg Disable_Auto_Arrange.reg (2.4 KB, 2 views)
File Type: reg shell-defaults.reg (58.6 KB, 2 views)

Regarding shortcuts.

This code will replace tiles and content modes with icons. Since the content mode is defaulted to 32px, changing to "Content" will make the 32px icons. Although this will work only after the folder is closed and reopened. Unfortunately in "disable auto-arrange" mode in the context menu there is no shortcut for Content mode, but a button for this mode exists in Classic Shell. Awkward solition of course but somebody can find it useful.

Code:
SendMessage, 0x108F,,,SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%
If (ErrorLevel=0x2 or ErrorLevel=0x4){

Control, Style, +0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%
Control, Style, -0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%

}

I don't use zip folders / special folders so that's not a problem.

I restored the system. Then applied the 2 .reg files. When the ahk script is running the text is on the right side and not below the 32px icons.

Code:
#NoTrayIcon
#NoEnv
Gui +LastFound
hWnd := WinExist()
SetControlDelay, -1
SetBatchLines -1

DllCall( "RegisterShellHookWindow", UInt,hWnd )
MsgNum := DllCall( "RegisterWindowMessage", Str,"SHELLHOOK" )
OnMessage( MsgNum, "ShellMessage" )
Return
 
ShellMessage(wParam,lParam) {
   If (wParam = 1  or wParam = 6) ;  HSHELL_WINDOWCREATED := 1
   {

WinGetClass, WinClass, ahk_id %lParam%
if (WinClass = "CabinetWClass") {

SendMessage, 0x108F,,,SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%

If (ErrorLevel=0x2){

Control, Style, +0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%
Control, Style, -0x2, SysListView321, ahk_id %lParam%

}

}

}

}
Any ideas?

By the way, is this information any helpful?
