Refreshing windows 7 toolbar/systray

3 posts in this topic

Hello has anyone succeded in refreshing the taskbar on windows 7.

I know you can manipulate the explorer.exe and restart it, but thats not an option, people may loose loads of stuff when doing this fix on their computers. I need a legal and nice way to refresh explorer.exe or the taskar/systray.

example.

I wanna add this reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
"ExtraIconsOnMinimized"=dword:00000000
"ShowStatus"=dword:00000003

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\MSUTB]
"ShowDeskBand"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"ctfmon.exe"=-

This will remove the language bar from the botton of the taskbar/systray, but you need to restart/logout of windows or do the dirty hack(killing explorer) before it applys to users.

For just refresh try this :


#NoTrayIcon
#include <Array.au3>

_UpdateExplorer ( )

Func _UpdateExplorer ( )
Local $_WinOpt = Opt ( "WinSearchChildren", True ), $_PARAM = 107040
If @OSVersion = "WIN_XP" Then $_PARAM = 28931
$_WinListArray = WinList ( "[REGEXPCLASS:(Explore|Cabinet)WClass]" )
For $_I = 0 To UBound ( $_WinListArray ) - 1
DllCall ( "user32.dll", "long" , "SendMessage", "hwnd", $_WinListArray[$_I][1], "int", 0x111, "int" , $_PARAM , "int" , 0 )
Next
$_WinListArray = WinList ( "[REGEXPCLASS:(Progman|#32770|SHELLDLL_DefView)]" )
For $_I = 0 To UBound ( $_WinListArray ) - 1
DllCall ( "user32.dll", "long" , "SendMessage", "hwnd", $_WinListArray[$_I][1], "int", 0x111, "int" , $_PARAM , "int" , 0 )
Next
EndFunc ;==> _UpdateExplorer ( )

But you need to restart explorer for apply your changes like here
