Show the path of all Explorer Windows PDF Print E-mail

This piece of Python code shows the current path of all opened Explorer Windows

 
from win32com.client.gencache import EnsureDispatch
 
for w in EnsureDispatch("Shell.Application").Windows():
    print w.LocationName + "=" + w.LocationURL

I wanted to write a code, which can make use of a handler to a Windows Explorer Window, so that I can show a small Tooltip or anything else dynamically belonging to a selected Path of the User. But I think this is the better way. Hope someone alse can use this...

Also the output shows a path of Internet Explorer and Microsoft Outlook:

 
>>> 
outlook:Posteingang outlook:Posteingang
Tools file:///C:/Users/me/Tools
Kurz notiert http://www.goermezer.de/content/blogsection/2/633
>>>

May be we would need a detection here for Outlook or Internet Explorer.

My prefered Python IDE

My prefered Python editor is Pyscripter from MMExperts. It is not only an editor. Pyscripter is a full Python IDE including (remote) debugging, a class browser, and all other nice helpers which a full featured IDE needs.

Do you have a script for me ?

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
