Introduction

You have too much icons on your desktop? Well, this will solve your problem. With this program you can easy organize your desktop. You can create caterogories, choose icon for each category and easy add programs or documents to each category.

How to add items to category? It is very easy, you just need select category and drag-drop item to window with other items of this category. You can add programs (exe files), documents, all other files and shortcuts. If you add shortcut program will find it's target file and shortcut name, so you can later delete this shortcut because program will start directly file.

Later at any time you can access application properties and modify categories and their items. You can add category, delete category, change category name and icon. Also you can remove and modify each item (program / document) in selected category.

How to use

1 – first run

At first run you must create Categories. For each categoriy you can select image, you have few icons in ics1 directory, but don't use this icons in commenrcial projects, i'm not shure they are free for commercial use

When you add categories, please restart application.

2 – add items

When you restart application, you can add items for each category. You can do this simply by selecting category and drag-drop icons/files on window with items or if you don't have items there is message 'No items'

if you want to change some category, you just need right-click on top of main window (where you can see two lines before category icons) and select 'Properties'. There you also can delete items for each category, change category name, icons...

Utterly useless as an article. You don't explain the design of the app, the code, how it works, the concepts behind it. Nothing that would teach anyone anything. Oh, other than how to run YOUR code. What aobut people who want to write their OWN code to do this?
