happy new year
i replaced all icon groups in shell32 with an invisible 8x8 monochrome icon (and removed avis, thanks for the reply in the earlier thread) and so, shell32's now 3.19 mb ^^) now of course there are still files that have icons (there is no way to simply hack into explorer not to show icons or an alternative file manager without icons, right? would be too good to be true
noticed in WinT's and Des' screenshots that there seem to be no icons (instead of blank icons), the text being close to the window border - or is that space manipulation and using blank icons?
in any case, a tutorial would be extremely cool
(it's been a very long way to get to an iconless interface i'm sure... if you don't want to spill out your secrets that's okay of course
a question aside - besides having replaced the shell32 icons,
"my computer" and "my documents" (and ie) still showed up as regular icons. they were replacable using iconphile, but it still
would be good to know where the icons really are...
and i removed a few graphics of the shutdown dialog graphics in shell32 and msgina (the windows logo and the buttons) - you can see i'm not a very experienced reshacker or customizer ^^
finally - this should probably be in another thread, just in case someone knows - in litestep, is there a way to minimize everything but the active window?
