For many people, the first part of every workday is spent turning on their computer and then opening the various programs, documents, and Web sites that they regularly use to do business. If you'd rather go get a cup of coffee instead of staring at your screen while you launch each individual program and file, try Instant File Opener. This easy-to-use program can automatically launch everything you need, saving you time and letting you focus on something else while your computer gets its act together.
The program's interface is plain and intuitive, and we had no trouble getting started. Users simply create lists of the programs and files they want to open, save the lists, and then either set them to run on startup or access them whenever needed throughout the day. Adding a new item to a list is as simple as clicking on a green plus sign and then browsing to whatever it is that you want to add. We loved the versatility of Instant File Opener; you can have it open Microsoft Word or specific Word documents, your browser, or specific Web sites. It can launch media files, your e-mail client--anything you want to have up and running automatically. A built-in Help file explains the program's features, but most users probably won't have to consult it; everything about Instant File Opener is extremely common sense. We think that anyone who reliably uses the same programs and files every day should give Instant File Opener a try; it takes only moments to set up, and it can save you time and hassle every day.
Instant File Opener installs and uninstalls without issues.
From Magnonic Software:
Create a list of multiple files, programs, folders, and URLs to be opened at the same time by opening a single special file or by logging into Windows. Files are opened with their associated program. You can add any type of item to a list: video files, music files, documents, text files, programs, folders, Web site URLs.
Lists can be saved as special files that automatically open everything in your list or that pop-up a selection menu to allow a user to pick what to open. For maximum efficiency and portability, a list can be saved as a VBScript file or in a special Instant File Opener file format.
