For instance, when you open a folder on your PC, what language are those coded in, and how do they work?

I don't really know what to Google, so I figured I'd ask here to see if any of you knew :P.

I wanna try and modify them to add a different feature that I've never seen before, even though I'll probably have to learn the language first. So any help/advice as to their functionality would be great!

I think you could code something like that using Windows API ...<windows.h> not sure though

They are most likely coded in either C or C++ and they are made up using a collection of various controls.

Kk, well, that gives me something to Google.

Thanks mate!


See, I wanna take a windows folder and add tabs to it like are found on an internet browser. A concept I haven't really seen yet >.<.

So I'm sure the majority of coding is already there, just needs a bit of manipulation :D.

That would be a nice feature. I *think* KDE might have that functionality but I can't remember. I'll have to look on my laptop later.
