    Little Green Folder

    Has anyone else had trouble getting Woody's Little Green Folder to work? I have tried in in W95, W98, & WNT, and cannot get it to work in any of them. All seems to be going well in the MyProperties utility, but when I have selected the Green Folder as the Open Folder icon, and get back to the MyProperties Icons tab, the Apply button is greyed (grayed?) out, and when I press OK and get out of MyProperties the Open Folder icon remains yellow even after restarting Windows.

    For anyone who missed it here is the Woody's article. (For some reason the link for the Green Folder works fine for me at work but not at home, so you may have trouble).

    One of the most useful changes you can make to Windows Explorer is to tweak it so that the open folder, the one currently in focus, is displayed as a green folder. The file
    to enable this to occur is an .icl file (zipped for carriage) called Greenfolder.icl and downloadable here
    <<A target="_blank" HREF=http://woodyswatch.com/download/GreenFolder.zip>http://woodyswatch.com/download/GreenFolder.zip</A>>. Installation is made easy by a neat little utility called MyProperties <<A target="_blank" HREF=http://home.talkcity.com/TechnologyWay/aeryc/myprop.html>http://home.talkcity.com/TechnologyW...yc/myprop.html</A>>.

    What's Little Green Folder all about? First I've heard of it.

    Re: Little Green Folder

    Thanks gm, I had actually tried that in WNT where it doesn't work, but hadn't tried it in W95 or W98 where it does. Martin Gitzel the author of My Properties also told me to use Rebuild Cache. Still cannot get it to work in WNT.

    Bill. LGF substitutes a little green folder for the little yellow folder which is Explorer's default icon for the open folder, makes it much more obvious which folder is open

    Now that I downloaded the little wonder, how do you install it? Never seen that extension before.

    Download and unzip both GreenFolder and My Properties. Run MyProperties.exe, select the Icons tab, press the Folders button, select Folder Open, press the Change button, browse in the Change Icon screen and find GreenFolder.icl (you will need to select All Files in the Files of Type: box). Click Open, then OK, you should be back to the MyProperties screen, press Rebuild Cache and the green folder should be installed and running.

    Re: Little Green Folder

    The "MyProperties" link is dead... is there another site where it is available?

    Re: Little Green Folder

    The site was active on May 31 because that's when I downloaded it, and I had an email from the author on Mon last. Maybe the site is being serviced.

    I would post it but it is 147k and the lounge is restricted to 100k. If you email me I could email it to you.

    I'd love to take you up on your offer, but that's a bit difficult when there is no e-mail listed for you! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Little Green Folder

    In case anyone else is having trouble with the My Properties website, here is info I received from Martin Gitzel the site owner:

    I'm not sure what is happening with my webpage. I'm trying to get answers,
    but in the meantime, i have it mirrored at
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www3.sk.sympatico.ca/gitzel/aeryc>http://www3.sk.sympatico.ca/gitzel/aeryc</A> .

    This one is working at the time of posting.
