Hi all,

something that has been annoying me for a while is the following:
On my system icon windows are being reused, meaning opening a new window
for every folder is disabled. Now when I open a folder via the Run
dialog or via open.bat, another open icon window is used for it.
However, I'd like to have a new window in this case, as you may be able
to imagine.

Another minor issue: Calmira doesn't seem to like 256 color icons when
adding shortcut arrows, they get strange colors then.

BTW: In case the menus in icon windows can't be made to share their
resources, could an option for disabling the menus bars be implemented?

Concerning the current Windows floppy discussion: I also have WfW on my
hard disk (even twice - once in my E:\DISKSETS folder in DISK1, DISK2,
... and once in E:\WDISK with all files in one folder).

Oh, another thought: Could the routine that detects Win95 keys be
refined so that the Windows key and the context menu key can be
distinguished? That way the context menu could be accessed via the
keyboard, and it would finally be possible to open the desktop context
menu (including the "Open folder" command) w/o a mouse.
