     Remember the old one page module to load Browse For Folder!? This code makes it in four or five lines :) Just a reference to shell32.dll class: dim SH as New Shell and that's all. In fact, shell32.dll supports many functions. I have included some of them such as tiling and cascading windows and running System Properties, getting folder details and.... Download the source code to see how and if you liked it please remember to leave comments and vote! I developed this yesterday on my XP. If you have any idea, I'll be glad to know. Update Note: I checked compatibility. This is supported in Win 98 etc.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
