for /r %%a in (*.jpg) do "C:\Program Files\XnView\nconvert.exe" -quiet -colors 256 -resize 64 64 -rtype linear -out bmp "%%a

individual folder icons for all folders in Windoze!!

This batch creates in every folder a desktop.ini with the following content:





were XXXX is the folder name were the desktop.ini is created.

this requires a .bmp file named as the folder in all folders.



@echo off

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do del "%%i\desktop.ini"

::delete desktop ini if in folder

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do echo [.ShellClassInfo]>"%%i\desktop.ini"

::make desktop.ini and write first line

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do echo ConfirmFileOp=0 >>"%%i\desktop.ini"

::write second line

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do echo IconIndex=0 >>"%%i\desktop.ini"

::write third line

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do echo IconFile="%%~ni.bmp" >>"%%i\desktop.ini"

::create icon.bmp with has the name of the directory were it in

::also see windows xp help keyword "for"

for /D /R %%i in (*.*) do attrib +H "%%i\desktop.ini"

::hide all desktop.ini's

attrib +S /S /D *.*

::change attributes to "system" for all folders (desktop.ini need that)

::::set attribute for all folders and files

attrib -S /S *.*

::::reset attributes only for files, workaround
