Folder Guide 1.1 - Freeware Folder Launcher

Tired of drilling deep into Windows Explorer day after day for the same frequently used folders? Desktop and Start Menu links to these folders are the native Windows solution - inelegant and messy. The freeware program Folder Guide 1.1 puts your links to folders in the Context Menu - neatly tucked away, yet so quick and easy to access.

Big Update of USB Apps

Sandisk Cruzer Micro 256 MBI set out to clear out some of the duplicate-purpose applications on my USB drive. Well, it's so hard to make a decision! My Sandisk Cruzer Micro 256MB drive now carries 84 programs taking up 92,734KB. I still am looking for a password keeper, a screenshot utility and any other handy network or system utilities.

Several programs were removed because they write to the registry: MWSnap, Metapad, Pure Text, ScrapBook, and ZIP Password Finder.

Why four spreadsheet programs? A portable spreadsheet shootout is coming soon.

So take a look at my new list of USB apps. I also added a lot of new links to the project page. You're sure to find something interesting!
