thanks shawn, the prob i am having is that it is on my objectdock and the god mode folder is in my users folder the dock icon obviously is a shortcut to the godmode in users folder .and if any windows are minimised when i click the godmode icon on my dock it opens whatever window, this didnt used to happen and on the laptop it works fine, same set up.
also the generic godmode icon changes to the explorer icon when i drag it to my dock, puzzler isnt it.

Strange. I'll do some experimenting with it to see if I might be able to figure out why it's doing this to you. I'll post back with any found results.

Julian,

Ok, I figured out the issue. It's the way that ObjectDock handles the target path/arguments differently that caused this issue. You can create and use the shortcut from the new OPTION THREE instead for it to work properly now with this.

THe update to the tutorial with optoion 3 works flawlessly thank you brink, i think i ran into an issue with the previous version on objectdock as i upgraded to objectdock plus and this gave the conflict
