The documentation at the Windows Dev Center is fairly limited compared not only to third party sites, but to even what I can create by changing folder settings and opening up the resulting desktop.ini file. The problem with third party sites is that those at the top of Google's index often do not state what system is covered (XP has several useful parameters removed in Vista/7/8), contradict each other when compared, and often do not produce the desired behavior when tested.
As background, I am working with a removable drive and I would like the folder icons, folder templates, icon sizes, and any other atheistic elements to be held constant in Windows Explorer, independent of the (Windows) machine I hook it up to. Setting folder icons is easy and the folder templates I found through testing as described above. I have not found a solution for icon size or folder background. Those may not exist in Windows 7, but I feel the lack of official documentation leaves room for doubt.
I'd also be interested in Windows 10 documentation, but I assume that's still in flux even if a document is available.
