here are two icon sets i made that make it a bit easier to tell at a glance which scripts are running (vs having to hover over the H icons to get the script name)


• add script_icon.ahk to your user library

• download one of the following icons sets

grey key icons (click "download" on the top right and select "direct download")
green icons

• add the folder path to the [icon folders] section at the top of the script_icon.ahk script

• put the following in the auto-execute section of your scripts or your 'new script' template

Code: Select all

menu, tray, icon, % script_icon()
• enjoy less indistinguishable H icons in the tray

script_icon.ak can also be used to check for icons that are in the script directory similar to the way the local library will include functions that are in %a_scriptDir%\Lib\

- if there is an icon in the root of the %a_scriptDir% that matches the script name then that will be used
- otherwise it looks for an icon in %a_scriptDir%\icons\ or %a_scriptDir%\icon\
- if nothing is found there it searches through your icon folder for a match or for an icon matching the first letter
- if nothing is found at all then the default H icon will be returned

These icons are truly gorgeous. If you are able to make them easily, I have a small request. I'd really like to have the letter "Q" icon in the same style as the letter "O" icon, with the body size similar and not squeezed to make room for the tail. As it stands, the Q is distinctly different from all the other letters in font height. Don't know how often I'd use Q, but the icon set is so nice that I'd love to have the character. Thanks for the set as is, though, and for sharing the script as well.
