Sounds like you're trying to replace the Quick Launch bar with browser buttons and menu??
Technically no problem (if you know a bit macro coding
, but luckily disrupted already volunteered to help
Just a tip, while waiting, if you'd also like pretty icons in the new menu, or buttons, you can already start collecting your icons into a bmp-line, like the bmp's in the skin folders
Rather easy if you copy one of those (perhaps menu.bmp), open the copy in MS Paint, then copy the icons e.g. from the quicklaunch bar. The size for menu icons must be the same as in other menus (16x16 or 24x24px? check menu.bmp), the size for buttons is free, since you probably use an own toolbar for them anyway. The icon background gets transparent if you use that magic pink from the other toolbars.
To make it easier to keep the right width I usually add a 2 pixel high line with width markings at the bottom, which is "off-size" (16x18px) and so doesn't show later. Example: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?10,97029
But replacing the FILE explorer with a browser, that's too weird, do you find that really easier??
How do you do anything like deleting, creating, renaming, sorting by date etc.???
