Hi all... Is there a VALID script (or a combination of registry keys) that is able to set small icon on desktop for real? I've tried many and many solutions (shelliconsize etc...) but still can't get it to work.... :cheers:

Hi
I am not sure which Win7PE project you are using
But try this
In Winbuilder Main Configuration set Screen resolution to 1280x 1024 :cheers:

doesn't change anything. I always must set "show amll icons" on desktop manually.

tried

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
"IconSpacing"="-1200"
"IconVerticalspacing"="-1200"
"Shell Icon BPP"="32"
"Shell Icon Size"="32

tried


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop
"IconSize"=dword:00000020

but nothing to do. Icons are always "medium"

Tried with win7pe_se and multipe leopard.

Been there tried that ... too. For even hacked the explorer script to set the icons to like 28 and they are still medium.

I'd love small icons on the new classic start menu script too. Same thing, they are always medium.

Well it is a registry hack:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE3-USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU]

"NodeSlots"=hex:02

"NodeSlot"=dword:00000001



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE3-USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop]

"IconSize"=dword:00000020

"Mode"=dword:00000001

"LogicalViewMode"=dword:00000003



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE3-USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

"Start_LargeMFUIcons"=dword:00000000

"TaskbarSmallIcons"=dword:00000001

I looked at Winbuilder syntax and you can import a .reg ile like so:
RegImport



RegImport,<RegFileToImport>

This command will import an external registry file &#40;*.reg&#41; to your local registry system.



It will use as parameter the  filename to read values from.



Syntax example&#58;

RegImport,c&#58;\myFile.reg

In this example we add the values from myFile.reg onto the registry system

Maybe someone with better script skills can give us more elegant solution in the strict script syntax.

The tweak as described is meant for Make_PE3 and need to be transformed for WinBuilder.

Follow ChrisR in similar tweak to be applied on DEFAULT registry hive

Hi Amalux,

I test a new Explorer script provided by Ludovici with integrated shutdown and reboot.
Here is the script Explorer with small and very small icons and also classic shell with an option for small icons

He is not MIA.

He is simply "hanging out" elsewhere.
