SideBar for Windows is a free software tool for maximizing productivity allowing you to easily create, group, and save all your favorite programs, shortcuts, network paths, and urls for quick access.
How it works: SideBar works by letting you decide what you want access to. You create groups and then within those groups you create items that link to your favorite programs, documents, URL's, folders, pictures, video, or anything else you could think of.
Have you ever had a common group of programs that you use? Would you like a way to organize them together without creating a bunch of folders or shortcuts on your desktop? What about wanting to group a folder, shortcut, program, URL to a website, and a network path all together in one place? The groups feature in SideBar let you make these things happen easily. SideBar is non-intrusive and stays hidden on the side of the screen. It only shows when you put your mouse all the way over to the edge of the screen. Once you have finished choosing what you want to do in Sidebar and remove your mouse from its borders SideBar goes back to hidden mode and stays out of your way. Features: Integrated calendar: Capable of integrating with Google and Microsoft live calendars. View and schedule your events without having to open another program. Customization: Powerful customization allows you to style SideBar's appearance and behavior the way you want. Market Data: SideBar gives you the capability to stay up to date on energy and stock market data.
