I can imagine how much work that feature request would be, so it's all good!

Hey, how would it look if instead of tabs for Folders and Apps, they were displayed in two separate sections so that both could be seen at the same time?

Ah, it would look fine but I chose the tab control because then it gives you a full size view for both folders and apps rather than half and half. Could be problematic if you close a lot of stuff. This is about the time I start feature freezing so during or after testing if you wish we can change it to group them in a single view if you like smile.gif

Hey, that's brilliant. Nevermind, then!

 

I have to admit, the tabbed view is cleaner. :)

I'm glad you suggested this too BTW. I have all this knowledge on how Windows works and the shell APIs and what not and I finally get to use it (I don't often need it lol).

You wouldn't think it but there's a few technologies in this simple application:

- COM (entirely from managed code in C# thanks to .NET COM interop)
- Native Win32 APIs from either .NET managed interop or some native C++ code that the managed components talk to.
- Windows Communication Foundation (lets config GUI talk to service host... and lets service host talk to config GUI wink.gif )
- Windows shell APIs (makes extensive use of what are called "item ID lists" which are binary representations of objects in the shell - this is how it is able to restore ANY folder, control panel item, or other shell object).
- New Windows RT APIs (IApplicationActivationManager) lets us re-activate closed Modern UI ("metro") apps.

It feels like building a house really. Sometimes I look at a half finished house and I'm like how the bloody hell are they going to finish that. But really its the same, just in a different kind of world tongue.gif

That's an interesting analogy. It kinda makes me wish that I had gotten into programming. lol I don't want to now because my plate is full enough as it is!

To continue the analogy, why bother learning how to build your own house when you can ask someone else to do it for you that already knows laughingsmiley.gif
