Adding shortcuts of frequently used folders to desktop is rather not the best idea when you are already dealing with cluttered desktop. Many users who keep 30 odd icons of applications, shortcuts, and folders face difficulty in finding certain applications from their desktop. If you want to access a long list of folders from your desktop without making it look untidy, QuickWayToFolders is the app you can use. It is an application for gaining quick access to your favorite folders. While it offers different UI for accessing the selected folders, you can keep it in system tray. When you click its icon, all of your selected folders will show up in side menu, letting you open them in Windows Explorer. Along with system tray menu style, one of its UI also emulates Windows desktop for accessing folders. If selected, a small desktop will be displayed on screen to select the folder you want to access.
Moreover, you can select UI for each selected folder separately. This enables you to, let’s say, access desktop from system tray menu and C:/Program Files from small desktop screen. Along with menu and desktop style UIs, browser interface and multiple folders menu are also available. Usage is simple, just launch the application and click Add button to specify either a whole drive or a specific folder. Once folder is selected, choose the UI from top and click OK.
You can access the folder items from system tray. Just click the icon to access the folder items from defined UI style.
When you want to add folders to your favorite folder list, right-click the system tray icon and select Options to open main configuration window. QuickWayFolder works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Versions for both Windows 32-bit and 64-bit editions are available.
