this product is soo cool

thanks for you and I will be happy if it became open source.

My suggestion , is if you can assign every file its own icon , for example word document have its own icon and jpg image have jpg icon and so on

The only files that load their own icon are:

Code: Select all

*.exe
*.icon
*.ani
*.cur
*.lnk
*.url
Drives also load their own icon.

All other files and folders use the default icon assigned by Windows.

To customize these icons:
  • In Windows Explorer, from the Tools menu, Click Folder Options.
  • Click the File Types tab.
  • Locate the extension you wish to change.
  • Click Advanced.
  • Click Change Icon.
  • Select the icon and click OK to change the icon.
  • Click OK to save changes to the file type.
  • Click OK.
I have plans to add support for thumb nail views in a future release of "Everything".

Hope this helps..
