QuickWayToFolders v1.3.7

billon on 22 Jan 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jan 2019
  • 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.

Category:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract:

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

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

CloseAll v3.1 Private

webfork on 21 Nov 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Jun 2018
  • 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.

Quick Config v1.5.7.105

Checker on 15 Sep 2014

Quick Config is a powerful and convenient tool aimed at saving or changing various settings to a custom profile. This is useful for resetting any changes to a single computer or for multiple computers that all need to have similar network, sound, or video options. The program will work as a very basic backup system for listed system settings (saved to its own XML file) that can then restore a machine or be transferred to another computer.

Available changes include setting local and network shares printers, sound scheme and volume, registry entries, services, run specific programs, change browser and email defaults. Changes can be applied in part (on each section select "apply now") or in whole (from the main window).

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 :-(

GridMove 1.19.60

GridMove tries to make windows management easier by defining a visual grid on your desktop, to which you can easily snap windows. This program comes bundled with some predefined grid templates that can be easily swapped, but also includes ways to create custom grids and share them with others.

Additional features include tools for resizing, displaying windows in cascade or mosaic views, and making a window remain on top, and more.

Created using AutoHotkey.

I've been meaning to try this just so I can emulate the AeroSnap feature from Windows 7 on Windows XP.

shnbwmn on 2016-01-08 00:11

This program is amazing. It's the only one I've found so far that actually let's you define a GRID as opposed to merely snapping windows to borders or resizing windows in increments.

freakazoid on 2016-05-11 04:27

So I finally had a chance to test this app.

It takes a tiny bit of effort to learn how to set up grids, but once you have them set up, GridMove really sings. Memory usage is around 2.6 MB RAM.

I'm going to use this in place of Sizer.

Ifactor computes the prime factors for any given number. The program can factor large integers, but the practical limit is an integer in the trillions (15 digits). For example the number 999,999,999,999,999 will take about a minute for the program to factor. While you can enter numbers with more than 15 digits, the factorization will take a very long time.

Folderico allows you to change the default icon of any folder.

Folderico does not need to be running for the new folder icon to be displayed, and the changes are sticky even when the hard disk or memory stick is plugged into another machine.
