ExifToolGUI v5.16

SYSTEM on 6 May 2015
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by AlephX

ExifToolGUI is a tool for viewing/editing metadata inside a long list of file types including document, audio, video, image, PDF, and more. For images, the program can both view and edit metadata information such as camera/device used, settings on the device, and even map the location the picture was taken if the camera has GPS capability. The program also supports IPTC and XMP tags, has batch capability, and can import/export all tags.

For privacy (and file size), the program can remove all metadata from selected files.

The program is a front-end for the cross-platform ExifTool. It extracts the content of ExifTool.exe to a temp folder under the user's folder, along with thumbs, if enabled.

" ExifToolGUI v5.15, January 8,2013
Changes:

Bug fixed where sub-directories with names containing a dot could be processed when processing the parent directory. "

Everytime I use it, this program surprises me away with a LOT of data about files. If ever you want to try and understand the history, author, or other details about a given file, ExifTool is a great place to start.

QuickWayToFolders v1.3.3

Checker on 18 Apr 2015
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Apr 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. :)

OpenedFilesView v1.60

Checker on 11 Mar 2015
  • 86KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Mar 2015
  • Suggested by milentechie

OpenedFilesView displays the list of all opened files on your system. For each opened file, the handle value, read/write/delete access, file position, the process that opened the file, etc. are displayed. You can also close one or more opened files, or terminate the processes that opened these files. This is particularly handy when you are trying to delete/move/open a file and Windows complains that the file is "locked".
