  1. Hey,

    I am into windows platform research. Can anybody tell me, how we can
    determine "Active

    desktop" settings from ShellState


    i did a reverse engineering of this value data. It si Binary data. I found
    that the 5th

    Byte in ShellState is changing everytime i change active desktop status
    (enable or

    - Am i right by saying that this 5th BYTE only decides the active desktop
    - Also, am i right by saying that the 7th Bit of this 5th BYTE is mainly
    responsible to

    change Active desktop enable and disable?
    - Is it applicable for all windows OS 2000 and above?

    thanks in advance for your time and reply.

  2. This would probably get better responses posted to a newsgroup for your
    Windows version, whatever it is.
