Very nice utility, gorgeously implemented. It's a pleasure to use and for the first time in 20 years I have a clean desktop.

One small problem. I've included among the items managed by ME two Microsoft utilities, the Media Player and Windows Explorer. The icons for both are not very attractive, but they do exist. When added to ME, both icons become the same forbidding Red Hand (symbol as it happens of the protestant side in the Northern Ireland civil war). Trying to change the icon I get my choice of a number of other Red Hands and nothing else. What am I doing wrong?

Hello Edward!

Can you please explain how do you add those two items?

Aha. Thanks for asking the right question.

I was just dragging and dropping desktop icons. This seems to work fine for most applications, but for these system utilities I need to click on shortcut properties, go to the containing directory, find the exe file, and drag *that* to ME. Works just fine, problem solved.

Yes, sir!

Completely right solution.

Sincerely yours,
