As you will find I will be writing a lot of batch files. I need to create a batch file to place an icon on the desktop .... Easy. Is there a way to place it in a specific location on the screen?(possibly by pixel?).
Another Batch file question(18 posts)
I work for an accounting firm with about 60-70 users. I am one of 2 network admins. I told the other network admin that I had created a batch file to add a shortcut to the desktop for a piece of software that I was going to put in an email and have the users run themselves.(I'm a lazy IT person what can I say ...). After that he challenged me to have it put in a specific spot on the desktop. (I.e. the lower right hand corner). That way in the email we could say that it would appear there. I know that it is a trivial thing but now it’s a thorn in my side because I know there must be a way to do it and its going to be an annoyance until I do it. I will let you guys know if I am ever successful. At this point I don't know if I will be.
Ah. In that case, AHK is probably out of the question. I don't think this is possible. Icon placement is so arbitrary in windows, it sometimes seems as if the icons move around by themselves..
You might be able to do it with AutoIt3 as there is an script at http://www.autoitscript.com/fo.....opic=53209 that uses it for saving and restoring desktop icon positions.
Though I think in the end trying to make a script that does what you want maybe more work then it's worth.
