FoldersPopup 2.2.1
Quickly access your frequently-used folders

FoldersPopup is a well-designed tool which makes it easier to browse to your most frequently-used folders.

Suppose you're in an application, for instance, and click File > Open, Save As, Export or just about anything else file-related. If your target folder is far away then it could take quite a few clicks to find it. But with FoldersPopup running, just middle-click the mouse or press Win+K and a menu appears with various shortcuts. Common folders like Desktop, Documents, \Windows or \Program files are a click or two away, your most recent folders also appear on the list, and once you select something the Save As dialog updates immediately.

This isn't just about Open and Save actions. FoldersPopup can also be used within Explorer as a quick way to switch folders. Or if you're at the desktop and need to check the \Program Files folder, you can have the program launch Explorer there (or anywhere else on your list) in a flash.

Best of all, this even works at the command prompt. So there's no more typing a really long path, only to realise it contains spaces and you missed the quotes: just activate FoldersPopup and choose your folder with a couple of clicks.

The program delivered great results for us, but if you've any problems then there are plenty of settings and configuration options. In particular, you're able to set custom hotkeys or mouse actions for every FoldersPopup feature. And you're not restricted to a single list of "favourite folders": you can organise them into as many submenus as you need.

Version 2.2 brings:
    -Support drag and drop to add favorite folders (nice and easy!).
    -Make the cursor change to a hand when the mouse pointer is over buttons or clickable text in Settings dialog box.
    -Recent folders menu now shown in a detached menu, refreshed each time it is opened, with tool tip while refreshing.
    -Fix a bug with number of Recent folders hide/display in Settings, Options.
    -Fix layout bug in Edit folder dialog box.
    -Fix bug making Switch to Explorer opening a new window.
    -Replace PCAstuces review URL with Freewares & Tutos.
-Minor release: 2.2.1 (2014-07-11)
    -Fix a bug when adding a folder to a submenu using drag and drop.
    -Add an incentive message about drag and drop at the bottom of the “Settings” window.

Verdict:

A well-designed tool which really can speed up folder navigation

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
