File fanatic

Organize your files with this feature-packed tool.

Working with files in Windows can be a cumbersome proposition, and we've seen a variety of different programs that aim to simplify this process. But we can't say we've ever seen anything quite like FilerFrog (32-bit). This utility adds an incredibly helpful set of functions to the Windows context menu, making it easier than ever to organize and maintain your files.

When we first installed the program, we weren't quite sure what to do; it's a shell extension and thus has no interface of its own. Fortunately, it comes with a Help file that explains its features in easy-to-understand language, making FilerFrog a good choice even for novice users. We quickly realized that all we had to do was navigate to the files we wanted to work with, right-click, and choose a feature from FilerFrog's comprehensive menu. We decided to start with a basic feature and move some images out of one folder and into a new one. With FilerFrog, all we had to do was select the desired images, choose Organize and Extract Files to Folder, and then enter a name for the new folder. FilerFrog automatically created a new folder within the old one and moved our files there. There are plenty of other options for moving and organizing files, as well as tools to delete empty folders, create detailed lists of file names, encrypt files, join and split files, and rename files. The program can also resize images and create photo albums. We were quite impressed with FilerFrog's features and ease of use, and we think it's a great tool for just about everybody to have.
