The TreeView control with an ImageList for the little icons ... there are 10^10 posts about how to populate a treeview, put images on a treeview etc. The main thing is getting where you pull the data from straight, then control basically does the rest.

hmmmm well i have already written a similar app, but now my objective is to write an folder explorer that has the look of windows explorer, so i have to learn how to navigate in the namespace, how to get the icons and context menus. I just know that this lies in some Shell operations using SHxxxx-like functions... that's where I actually need help :) and that's why I posted that example from Brad Martinez, a great example but very difficult to understand though, if not familair with the SHell (which is my case :-\ )
