Project Description


I want to create an icon overlaying application for Windows platform. (Something like this: [url removed, login to view])

It would be a shell extension for the files context menu in explorer, where you can select an icon for each file or folder on the filesystem. (something like on the image attached). The point is that I should be able to change the badge with 2 clicks.

I need to be able to compile it myself (ex. in Visual Studio or Qt), so later I can edit it.

The icon should be visible in both Total Commander and File Explorer.

There should be an editor, where I can set the icons available in the menu. As I've researched, only 15 is enabled for the whole OS, and Dropbox, and Tortoise already uses some. Its a plus, if you can select and edit those icons as well.

Remember, I need it for both files and folders.

The budget is at minimum.

there is help, but I couldnt get them working:

[url removed, login to view](v=[url removed, login to view]).aspx

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]
