Ok, I got bored and started surfing/searching new stuff for Vista...

Now found these kewl things:

Did you know that:

  • When you shift right-click a file you get "copy as path" option in the context menu? Really handy if you need to input a file location somewhere and you don't feel like browsing to that file. Other options in the "shift-context menu" are 'Pin to start menu' and 'add to quicklaunch'.
  • 'Command Prompt Here' - XP powertoy is included by deafult in Vista; just shift right-click a folder and the option auto-magically appears in your context menu.
  • User shell folders (the one in c:\users\%username%\) can be redirected. Just right click any folder you want to redirect, pull up the properties of it, click on tab "Location" and type in the new path. I find it handy to redirect my 'My Music' and 'My Videos' shell folders to my partitions with mp3's and videos/movies. It's a real shame there is no way of creating custom shell folders (that I know of)
  • And finally: Daily Dilbert Sidebar gadget attached. :nervous:
It was a productive sunday after all... (well, at least compared to I'm-hung-over - wanna sleep - leave me alone - Sundays). Hope I'm not making double posts here... Didn't search at first, coz hey - it's Sunday. :)


Grtz

It would be nice if the "Open Command Window Here" would be present at all times like the XP PowerToy added.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
