Delete After Days lets you drag and drop files and folders to a desktop trash icon. The program will prompt you for a number of days before deletion. After the specified time, the files will be deleted. Useful for ongoing system cleanup or to help make sure files you're not actively using don't continue to take up space on your system.

Note that the program will not delete files that are copied or moved and has to be running to actually delete the files.

QuickWayToFolders v1.3.2 Updated

  • Released on 8 Feb 2015
  • Suggested by crownixx

QuickWayToFolders provides quick and easy access to a folder on your computer via a taskbar icon. The program window disappears when you click outside the window. Display modes include:

  • Desktop: Act like a mini-desktop, with small icons
  • Small Browser: very similar to Windows explorer in "details" view
  • Menu: Display folder content in a menu
  • Multiple Folders Menu: Display multiple folders content in a single menu (note that you must manually add them or nothing will appear when you click the icon)
In the "Menu" and "Multiple Folders Menu" settings, the program can act like a Program Launcher. Multiple instances of the program can be run with customizable icons and each entry is added to the taskbar.

To use the program as a root folder of a portable folder choose Options - Local path, then use a forward slash: "\". To set an image as a background place it in the application folder and set path as "image name.jpg" etc.

I extracted the zip to a folder on my thumbdrive and attempted to launch QuickWayToFolders.exe (thumbdrive attached to my netbook - WinXP SP3). I got "The procedure entry point ShutdownBlockReasonDestroy could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll."
This looks like it might be a great addition to my portables -- any help would be appreciated!

A great yet simple way to achieve native multi-desktops in Windows 7 x64 (I mean desktops as physical locations, bearing in mind the default one is usually located at %USERPROFILE%\Desktop):

1) Define any number of folders in QuickWayToFolders (QW2F) with "Shortcut Type" as "Local Path" (e.g.: Desk2, Desk3, ...);

2) Customize them through QW2F's "Options | Browsing options", taking care to check "Hide toolbar For Home Folder" and "Save Icons Positions For Home Folder", setting "View Type" to "Medium", as well as a different "Show / Hide Hotkey" (Win+F2, Win+F3, ... are viable choices);

3) For easier visual identification, set different background pictures for each folder in "Customization";

4) Open "FoldersOptions.ini" in QW2F folder with any text editor and change all "IsMaximized=0" to "1".

Launch and you're good to go -- to get back to the default desktop, press Win+D. There are a few quirks to iron, but not a bad solution in the end. :)

File Joiner v2.3.8 Updated

File Joiner easily combines multiple files into one. Often files are separated into parts using a program like HJSplit (ending with .001, .002, .003, etc.) so they can be sent over email, newsgroup or other hosting service that limits file size.

Very easy handy fast useful program. I need it. Thank you.

Although it probably won't help with files split using HJSplit, for cutting up and reassemble files, I recommend the outstanding FreeCommander (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=291.

though it looks like a nice little tool (52 kB is very slick. good!) you guys are aware thatr 7zip can join .001 .002 .003 ... files together without any hussle?
