Thank you for you answer.

Unfortunately im a greatest newb in such modification. Any chance to find other gadjets which can work with folders?

i dont know if anyone has made anything like what your asking for, look in dxwidgets for "folder" and see what shows up.

I found code that can be used to show the following:

Reading d:\downloads
Downloads:Size=2001143486
Downloads:#Files=87
Downloads:#Folders=4
Downloads:Size=2001143486

The code could be made into what your asking for but i dont know if/when i would be able to do that.  You are wanting something that would be some sort of icon you select and pointing to a folder you select as well, and it would read that folder for the info like above.. correct?

it happens.. when they get frustrated fighting the sw, and people grumping over everything, and then add life into the mix and there is just no time.. its a shame.. id LOVE to do more things but there is just not enough time.

Yep.

I tryed https://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=387&libid=34 but i think i need to put many efforts modifying it

But anyway i looked down through 10 pages with "folder" results and didn't find better choice.

Please, tell noob then, how can i modify the widget? What i need to do to make not only 3 folders, but so many folders as i want?

I think i can manage font/icon by myself, but above-listed is overwhelming 4 me now..

As an alternative, you can use Avedesk (which is what I use) and also uses less ram.

There are DOZENS of DX tutorials out there.. i know because i have made at least 20.

Start here: https://www.wincustomize.com/articles.aspx?aid=145066

If that doesnt work, google "desktopx tutorial" there are tons of pages there.
