sorry about the email Spookster, just checkd mine and I had to verify somthing or somthing like that.

win2k lets you reprogram its folders using a web based programming language, and I want to know how to do that in XP.

note: all the computers in my house has windows XP.

Ok I got it but it went to a different email address than what is listed in my profile. Did you use the forum to send the email? If not how did you find my yahoo email?

I'm guessing he clicked on the yahoo icon under your name, it mentions your yahoo stuff there

You have to activate the "Active Desktop" stuff in order to do that:

That web thing only works for the desktop. I think plutonium was asking how to do that with folders.

I think once you've enabled it for the desktop it'll become available for all folders. I know in W2K you've got to enable it in order for those customizations to work.

I'm not sure it'll work yet but I know they're related so that's a good starting poinr.

with win2k you can edit the folder and you dont need to enable Active Desktop,
you can click costumize this folder and you can edit the source code in there, I think IE translates the code or something.

If I have to mess with the system registry I can just forget it!

Thank you all for helping me any way :)

Now that it's been brought up I seem to recall a BugTraq posting where it was pointed out that someone with restricted permissions on a machine could program a folder to perform various actions (including adding to their own permissions set) when an administrator visited that folder. All that was needed was enough rights to be able to program one folder that would be visited by and administrator. It looks like MS has decided to forgoe that functionality in order to eliminate that risk.
