i like the image - it does the job perfectly.

I would only make one small (and if i'm honest, insignificant) change. I find it better to create a DosBox shortcut on my desktop so I don't need to mess around with more than one window!

It doesn't make any difference and it doesn't really matter, that's just what I do!

Thats a real good idea, who wants to do all that navigating

The only reason i'm leaving it that way is that i feel it conveys a image more people are familar with, more obvious etc. With the folder layout rather then some unfamilar desktop background with a shortcut on it. As it is meant for people new to DosBox.

If this site choses to use a similar explanation then changes are welcome.

This work is worth being stickied. Well done on the picture.

Another option would be to place the DosBOX-icon in your quicklaunch-toolbar. Then you can drag the program onto it, even when (part of) your desktop is behind some windows!
