  • 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.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: No
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)

  3. Right-click the taskbar icon, select Options and uncheck "Launch at Windows Startup"

Thanks, those are interesting apps. I really find ShortPopUp especially useful.

Better trust the executable. Softpedia also corrected the version number:

  • Suggested by crownixx

CloseAll (aka Close All Windows) helps you to quickly close all running applications. The program brings up a window with running applications, lets you select apps you want to close (by default all apps are checked) and click OK. CloseAll functions just as if you were pressing the close button for each running app, bringing prompts about closing a program as normal (e.g. "Do you want to save before closing").

The program is ideal for moving from one application set to another such as from photo edition to office work or video production.

md5hash already works that way. The INI will be created on first run if it does not exist.

This Tool is perfect for Laptop Users!
Much better and a lot more options than NetSetMan!!

Bruno on 2010-05-27 08:37

Nice application but it doesn't support dual screen or extended screen display. At work I work with TWO screens, at home only with my laptop screen. This is the most important feature for me and it is unavailable :-(

Ben on 2010-10-05 12:58

This program has a ton of possible uses: quickly viewing workstation settings, copying static network settings for operating system reinstallation, quick application of network drive mappings for application installations...thanks for this!
