Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

How to create a system folder in My Computer System folder like My Document which appears in My computer are special folders which appear can not be deleted. Now if you want to create something like that, a folder which cannot be deleted!!!! . Here is how you do it to create a folder which cannot be deleted!!. It should work both in XP and VISTA.However a word of caution, If you don’t know about registry, either back up or don’t try this. I am not sure how to create a direct script for this so be cautious. Step 1: Create a Unique Key Open registry with “regedit” command on run window. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\. Then right click and create a new key with value as {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345} Now set the default value of this key to the folder name you want to use. Now your path will look like ( I will call this as parent key throughout the discussion) HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}   Step 2: Add Custom Icon to the folder Now create a sub key under parent key. Name it as “DefaultIcon”. Set the default value of this to the path of the icon image you want to use. If you dont specify your icon, system will take default icon. Step 3: Adding attributes Under parent key create another key with name as “InprocServer32′ Set the default value as “shell32.dll” Again at the same level create another folder as “ThreadingModel” and set its value as “Apartment” Same way create another key (under parent level) at the same level with structure as \Shell\My Folder\Command Set the default value here as “explorer /root,c:\Blog Data” This has to be same which you gave when you created the first key. Step 4 Adding Handlers Under parent key, create another key as \ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers\ {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345} Similar way another key is to added to parent key as “Shell Folder” In this right click and create new binary value called as “Attributes” with value as 00 00 00 00. Step 5: Settings to place in My Computer Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Then to \CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\ Add the parent key which in this case is {FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}   Thats it, You are done. Try this carefully and I am sure there wont be any problem

I want to create new folders from my documents in my computer how do I do it


get the desk top screen up
right click anywhere on a vacant patch that brings up a drop down box where you will see new folder
click on that and that folder appears on the desktop screen
rename it to suit what you want to call that folder
then when yo need a document saved -save to desktop and then move that file into the named folder
if you have documents already in say my documents click and hold and drag that file to the appropriate folder on desktop
if you have just the one monitor , get into the library area and open up my documents the drag each document to the folder in the library drop down area
Basic I know but with a bit of practice you will get to moving documents to folders very quickly

  2. Open the c:\dj656 folder and double-click the downloaded "exe" file.
  3. Under c:\dj656 folder a folder will be displayed. For example, "2kxpinf" will be displayed. This folder was created by double-clicking on the downloaded "exe" file.
  4. Power on your printer, and connect your printer to the computer with a USB cable.
  5. The "Found New Hardware Wizard" will appear.

delete RECYCLER folder


Right click the recycle bin in 'my computer' or on the desktop and goto the properties. You may then configure the recycle bin for each drive or turn it off altogether. Once it is turned off for a particular drive you may remove the recycler folder (ignore the warning) it will not re-appear again when you delete files.
