If you look at the quick launch toolbar you can see a shortcut to toggle the desktop (usually). This is a .scf file. If you open it in a text editor you can see the command it uses. I've looked on the internet but I can't find what the other commands might be. Does anyone know how I can find what other commands can be used in a .scf file?

I myself have put extensive research into SCF (Shell Command File) scripting. SCF is not only used to toggle the desktop, but also can be used to bring up explorer or show the "channels".

I have learned from those pre-made scripts to make a SCF file that looks exactly like a folder. Since the extension is forcibly hidden - you cannot know from looking at it that it is not a folder. I have not however, been able to execute a program via those scripts no matter how hard I try.

All the (very few) resources I've found about it on the internet is much like my own conclusions. Some note these scripts and what they contain but do not know anything more than I do in how to use them.

Another little side note - certain extensions are hidden and will not be shown even if you select in your folder options to view known extensions. This is set in the registry.

Here's an example on how to hide the .txt ext:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\Default

This value is set to "txtfile" so now create an empty string var here:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\NeverShowExt

The .scf extension is set to SHCmdFile. So if you delete this value below, it will now show the extension.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SHCmdFile\NeverShowExt

Go ahead and do a find in regedit for "NeverShowExt" to see what other extensions are hidden. Some include .lnk (link files) and .shs (scrap file). There's some interesting things you can do with scrap files too since they're executeable.

But anyway, sorry I can't give you the help you desire.

I liked your question.

Thank you for your post SilentRage, but I already knew what you said from searching the internet. I'm simply trying to find out what other commands are available to use in these .scf files.

do you know how to make the SCF file look like text files or mp3 files or folders? If not, I'll tell ya how. You probably know how icons are set for SCF files, but I'm wondering if you know how to properly address other icons.

darnit, I see that your nick is unregistered now. Well, I dunno if you were deleted or what, but create a normal nick and come back and ask some more good questions.

OK, I'm back, and I do have more questions. But right now I'm focusing on these shell command files.
I found some good stuff here , but it's not enough.

That's odd. It was there before. I found it through google. Hmm, if I go up a directory it says he's on vacation. Maybe it'll be back when he comes back.
Well here's google\'s cache of it.

ah, yes, that's how I found the folder icon. I opened shell32.dll in the change icon dialog to view all its icons and figured out how they were ordered.

That was all I was going to tell ya up there.
