Newer style dialog for FileSelectFolder

13 Jul 2017, 13:17

It seems that on Windows 10 (and maybe other versions) the FileSelectFolder
Function displays what I would call an “older style” dialog box. How can I get a “newer style”?

I do see in the help for that function it refers to a page (https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/1583 ... e-dlg-501/) but that page says it is now OUTDATED.

Looks like I might have to use DLLCALL to use the one from Windows. Would this be the proper approach? I searched for a sample, but couldn’t find any. If somone has a pointer to a sample, that would be great.

Thanks, BoBo. Funny enough, now I am seeing the "newer" style without doing anything. Oh well, I learned some new things anyway from those links!!!
