Featured Freeware: Folder Guide

Simple to use, Folder Guide places your favorite folders right at hand by creating context menu shortcuts.

Place your favorite folder shortcuts on the right-click menu with this handy freeware utility. Folder Guide's compact button and results window interface won't take more than a minute to understand. Even the single-page Help file is superfluous.

Operating this utility is a piece of cake. Simply click Add to create an alias and insert the folder path. A built-in browse function makes it easy to navigate to the folder. The alias is immediately available under the Folder Guide option on the right-click menu. With a click you can sort the aliases alphabetically, or reorder them using simple Up and Down buttons. Keeping different sets of aliases is easy with Export and Import functions. The program uses few resources, and the quick access to favorite folders saved them time and trouble.

If you need to visit the same two or three folders regularly, this is an interesting and effective way to jump around quickly.
