>Mat, to make this useable for others we must try to write a batch which gets the first picture it find in all folders which is containing the string "front" in the filename (this must be the front cover), resize & convert it to bmp and save it under the same name as the folder name!
>what about naming *all* the bitmaps in every folder desktop.bmp? I think this simplifies this thing a little. So you havelittle pics 32x32 or 64x64. I think if windoze must resize every bitmap it slows more down than it is already...

Well, I allready had my jpg's named the same as the folder that's why I left them
like that - i thought it would be usefull. But I guess it makes no odds really.
I mean, in a (future) script they would be named foldername\desktop.bmp.

I tried the script (against your advice) and it works great!
The only thing is some of the icons are a bit wierd (it seems blacks/whites go a bit screwy)
Maybe they should be 16Bit color?

Really we need a way of getting an appropriate image from or something....hmmmm.

This is all good though, I like it a lot!
