More information:
Shell32.dll supports a lot of functionality (showing the browse for folder dialog, tiling and cascading windows, running system properties, and more) that otherwise would involve API functions of varying complexity. All you need is dim SH as New Shell and you can can call these functions easily. This is a demo of some of the functions, if you have additional ideas, I'll be glad to know.
