    You could always go and find the list of files from the desktop folder in windows.

    Yes, Mike, that is what I would do too.

    Zed, why do you want to do it the hard way?
    Do you just want to know what is on the desktop, or, is there some other reason for your ListView approach?

    Hy there!
    That's all ok, but I need the recycle bin, network, etc. icons too! And as I know, they are not in the desktop folder. So, thatswhy I need some usefull source code, how to get these icons, and all the others. And I want to do this stuff under WinXP platform. As you know, this is a little bit other, than Win9x platform.
