TOPIC: pin to desktop support in win 7

Re:pin to desktop support in win 7 5 Years, 2 Months ago  
ok, i created a file called rainy.ps1 with the above code.

I right-clicked on it and selected the "Run with PowerShell" option, but nothing happened

In ISE if I run the file I get the following error:

File C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\rainy.ps1 cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this system. Please see "get-help about_signing" for more details.
At line:0 char:0


-------------

I tried this solution:

To run an unsigned script:

1. Save the script file on your computer.
2. Click Start, click My Computer, and locate the saved script file.
3. Right-click the script file, and then click Properties.
4. Click Unblock.

But I cannot see any Unblock there

This keeps the windows visible with the "Aero Peek" feature in Windows 7. It does not fix the problem with the "Show Desktop".

Thanks for the code Jaykul. I tried it with Rainlendar and it works great. The fix will be available in the next build.

Yeah, sorry if that was misleading. This won't fix the pin-to-desktop thing (although to be honest, I'm not sure I know what that was supposed to do), it only fixes it so it stays visible like a desktop gadget when you WIN+SPACE or mouse-hover on the right border of your taskbar in Windows 7.

I was wondering, Rainy, if you can make it ignore the "minimize" command, so that it will stay on the desktop when I press Win+D. Currently, pressing WIN+D makes it minimize along with everything else, so although I can peek at it, I can't actually interact with it easily -- what's worse, when I press Win+D again, it doesn't seem to go back to always-on-bottom, nor to remember that it should be ExcludeFromPeek.

Oh, and for anyone else ... I wrote this up as a PowerShell script/function to make it a little easier to use to apply this trick to whatever other apps you may have ... http://huddledmasses.org/fun-with-pinvoke-and-aero-peek/

The Win+D doesn't actually minimize windows but it brings the desktop window over them. You can minimize the windows with Win+M (Shift+Win+M to restore) which will leave Rainlendar visible.
