Intuitive shortcut maker

Easily create shortcuts in My Computer and Control Panel.

Folder2MyPC allows users to create shortcuts for folders and applications in their Control Panel and My Computer. Though the program is easy to use and functions as promised, the lack of instructions for use is a significant drawback.

The program's interface is sleek and uncluttered, with separate tabs for creating both folder and application shortcuts. Users simply select the folder or application that they want to create a shortcut for, give it a name, and optionally select a custom icon for it. Folder shortcuts are created in My Computer, while application shortcuts can be added to My Computer or the Control Panel, including Control Panel subcategories. An additional tab gives users the option to edit or remove shortcuts they've already created, and another lists Windows folders with check boxes next to them, although there is no indication what occurs when a user check or unchecks a folder. For the most part, the program is fairly intuitive and easy to use, which is a good thing, as there's no Help file. The poorly written description of the program made us unsure at first what the program even did or how it could be useful to us. Fortunately, it's easy enough to figure out with a bit of experimentation.

Folder2MyPC is free. It comes as a ZIP file and although it installs without issues, it leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users who would like to create shortcuts in their Control Panel or My Computer.
