  1. Windows Explorer Taskbar Icons - local vs network folder icons


    I work a lot on network drives through a VPN, but keep large files on my computer (local drive). Often I have two folders with the same name - one local and one network - but it is never clear which is which without opening the window. Is there any way to change the icon for all networked drives so they are immediately recognizable in the taskbar from those on my computer? [Help]

  3. NIGHTMARE icon in windows taskbar

    Ok ... this is really an annoying thingy in Windows Vista that till today. My top wish list is to solve this !!! *Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:

    See attached pic ... for eg. open My Computer ... icon is of course as shown - the My Computer default Vista icon ... after you browse? *swoosh* kind of black magic ... it changes to that icon with the green arrow ... browsing back to My Computer it remains like that ... with the green arrow!!!

    This happens to any and all folders ! ... When you load it ... it comes up with the default folder ... after exporing through folder it changes ... and remains like that.

    For info : have tried a fresh installation of Vista to make sure that no bug got in. So must be some DAMN Vista settings

    Thanks mates ... hope you enjoy this puzzle !
