Icons in the Right-Click Menu

Post by bizzarojerry » Wed Oct 18, 2006 11:18 am

Hi, and thanks for creating such a great program ;-)

I just wanted to make a quick suggestion on how to make sandboxie easier to recognise and use. When right-clicking on an .EXE file to be executed in the sandbox why not have the "Run Sandboxed" entry in the right-click menu have a accompanying icon next to it.

WinRAR (a pile of pink books) and Avast (a circular blue A) already implement that feature, could Sandboxie as well. It would really help out with those of us that have heavily populated right-click menus.

Again Thanks.

Regards

BizzaroJerry

Personally I don't like these icons. But if you get enough people on this topic to agree with you, I don't mind adding the icon.

I think that would definitely be a good feature- adding a context menu. Will save on the browse>>>> looking for the file every time!

keep up the good work!

:D

@xxsuluxx
emm... an contect menu item is already there, the request is only for adding an icon to is.

@bizzarojerry

i think that would be an excellent idea, i have about 30 items in my right click menu, and it would make it alot easier to find the "Run Sanboxed" item if i didnt have to read every item to find it and instead could just look for the icon, (which wouldnt really require looking as it would stand out).

I looked into how to do this, it seems this requires adding a DLL to work with the Windows Explorer, and provide the icon at the right time.

So I won't create a new DLL just for this icon thing, but there are other good reasons to create such a DLL. (For example: intercept the opening of documents from within sandboxed folders.) When I get around to making it, I will have it add the extra icon as well.
