country's flag to windows 7




Setting your country's flag to your windows 7 taskbar, by ZEUS os X. (+ Flip 3d effect shortcut added see [link] )

[making the looking also as possible as mac os x right side of taskbar]

My method ---> [first must added Quick Launch toolbar on Windows 7 taskbar]

*********** The benefit using Quick Launch toolbar is that you can add not only a programs shortcut but a folder's also, or a theme's Name shortcut, like Aero, so you can easily change your themes, from your taskbar via Quick Launch toolbar. **************

Please Download my files and then copy the 'Taskbar shortcuts' folder to
C:\Taskbar shortcuts [provided C is the main hard disk of your operating sustem]

then :

1. Right clik to your windows taskbar. Deselect Lock the taskbar.

2. Again Right clik to your windows taskbar.

a.Then Right-click the taskbar -> Toolbars -> New toolbar

b. type the following into the "folder" field - "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch", where username is your user name on your user account.

c. click 'Select folder'.

d. now you can rearrange the Quick Launch into it's classic position.

3. a. right-click the Quick Launch and uncheck "Show Text". right-click again to uncheck "Show Title".

b. size the title-less and label-less Quick Launch area to your liking.

4. Make a folder on your hard disk, having inside any kind of shortcuts of important application [for example ' Regional and Language Options','Search', 'Sound Volume', 'Flip3D effect' !!! etc. and 2 folders of icons, one with countries's flags and one with your [mac style systray] icons.

5. Drag a shotcut, for example the ' Regional and Language Options'shortcut with your mouse to the toolbar Quick Launch which exist on the right part of taskbar.

Then right clik to the new shortcut you made on taskbar, select properties,change icon and then choose browse and on the file name wright the address that the countries's flags folder exist.
For example C:\Taskbar shortcuts\Countries Flags .

6. Then drag the other shortcuts [and replace their icon if you preffer from the folder exist. For example C:\Taskbar shortcuts\icons ]

7. Making the toolbar Quick Launch as big or small you preffer, draging with the mouse. If you want your county's flag to have invisible space right or left
of it, drag an 'invisible' folder i made, from the folder exist.[ For example C:\Taskbar shortcuts ], or if for any reason these not worked drag any empty folder [or if you dont mind a shortcut like my computer or control panel etc] as many times as big the space you want to make.

Then for being invisible this shortcuts on your taskbar make to any of them right clik, for changing their icon select properties,change icon and then choose a not visible icon exist on your %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll .

8. Right clik to your windows taskbar. Select Lock the taskbar.


please give credits for the flags to buz@icondrawer.com, as he made the flag png in many sizes. [i have transport only some to 16x16 icons]

also i transfer some flag icons and systray icons from panther's and other osx icons found on the page

[link] [please download Mac OS X Panther Icons] , and also

System Tray Icons taken some from [link]

So please thank this people for their work and presentation. The purpose of making this is to give you a simple mode without changing system files,

to make an easy as possible modification, having on your windows taskbar your country's flag, [or any kind of symbol you want]

Thank you.
