Alright here's one that's been stumping me way to long. You know when you right click a folder, and go to properties you get get items like the size, the type, ext. There's even options to change the icons.
What I want to know is how is this information stores? When you work with a say a file, it has a header that has information stored in side of it (like these File Signatures), however, this is a file, not a folder.
So where is this information stored? How does windows know to display a certain icon, and have it placed in a certain area, and assign it certain name, ext. I know this information must be stored somewhere, I just have no clue where.
Thanks in advance for any help
