Windows 7: ShellFolderFix - Manage folder window positions/size

hi !

1.0.4 seems to work !
i just made a few tests, noticed one (minor) problem, if i open a second window partially on top of another, the first window below is bleeding through.

but, im not sure if it as anything to do with your application.

you dont need 16-20GB HD-space for Windows 7, i have installed it on a much smaller partition,
if i remember correctly, it was 6 or 7GB.

i dont know the absolute minimum for Enterprise, but 10 GB should be enough, just for testing your app.

16-20GB is recommended for a normal installation, where you also have other programs on the same partition.

Just tested it, as luck would have it, since VirtualBox doesn't not support all those fancy Aero things, I ended up with the basic theme. I hadn't tried that before, only Classic and Aero which both work. Yes there are some redraw problems with that theme on both 32- and 64-bit. I assume you're using one of the basic themes (or have transparency effects disabled)?

Not sure if you're having the same issues that I saw, but they seemed to related to the window frame, not the interior. The frame/border not getting redrawn and instead showed parts of the window below.

I'll test some more tomorrow and see if I can figure out why.

Another version up, yet again. Fixes a minor issue with correctly reading the Recently Used Folders setting from registry.

The other fix, is for those using the Basic theme (or non-transparant Aero, which from what I can see is the same as Basic). If you're experiencing redraw bugs with that theme, try enabling the redraw fix option and see if that helps.

I tried some more today while searching for a fix, and for me I only had the redraw bug on the frames. Maybe the performance of the computer makes the bug appear differently due to timing differences, so you could try the new version and enable the redraw fix.

layout restoration

Great job, Tweaker!
As I always use many folders in my regular activities, the default Windows 7 behavior was painful enough to consider the change back to XP. I find the fix extremely useful. Thanks.

One suggestion: Can you implement the restoration of folder windows layout as well?

When opening some regularly used folders, I do not need navigation panel nor details panel. However, when browsing a complex folder hierarchy, I definitely need the navigation panel. It is frustrating to show/hide the panels each time. As I can see, the View option is restored correctly.

Thanks, again.

I would have if it were possible in some normal way, I also want it to save the per folder view layout. I'll continue to look if I can find some "hack" to solve this, but I don't know whether that will succeed or not. There's also the hope that maybe MS will re-add the functionality.


Note: It doesn't restore the View option, if it seems to do that, it's actually Windows itself. I also noticed that in some cases it seems like it remembers, I'm guessing that has something to do with the different templates or something.
