    the alt + a number is a symbol shortcut from microsoft word, go in word press insert and symbol, click one then press shortcut key

    cool! that is awesome, but what if someone rests there curser over the invisible folder and it does that thing that sometimes tells you what is in the folder?

    I like the idea but when you go to the folder "C:\Documents and Settings\\Desktop" you'll see a empty spot. I think someone will notice it sometimes so i need a way to hide that.

    hmhmmm lol. you can just put a space as the folders name instead of alt+0160 as they are basically the same thing. alt0160 counts as a character though while space does not, i think? well thats why i figure itll let me use it in some online forums and such in my user name when i get a msg saying no spaces allowed. probly screws with their db though.. just like the smilie i put in my user name ☺ alt+1 or ÇÆ5@☻¹Ú (random num pad mash) lol yeah they dont like that kind of stuff... is lulzy thou

    i can do most of the stuff but when it comes to changing the icon i cant get the customisable tab or wateva someone help

    Interesting but not deletable. at least, I've not found a way to delete it.
