When it comes to quick moving to a location on your PC, Handy Folders is an experienced assistant you can rely on. This utility provides a quick and direct access to whatever you wish: folders, files, disks on your PC or LAN, a predefined folder anywhere, including FTP or websites. Its sleek user interface and simple design make working with Handy Folders as easy as ABC.
Two guiding principles were observed while developing the product - time saving and usability. You need maximum two clicks to get to a folder you need. Under usual circumstances Windows always sends you either to My Documents or My Computer, but Handy Folders brings you to a wanted directory in a trice. Moreover, now you can form a list of your frequently used (favorite) folders exactly as in Internet Explorer. You can configure the settings of this folder guide to satisfy your habits and you will certainly be unable to remember what it is like to work with directories and files without Handy Folders.
Two simple ways take you to a path you need. First, you can use your system tray, where the left click brings you to a location you want and the right click pops up the additional menu, where you may change settings of the program. Second, you can go via the embedded Windows Explorer toolbar. It contains the icons of the disks on your PC and the handy folder icon for accessing the predefined list of your favorite folders. What's more, Handy Folders provides the opportunity of instant going to a location right from the Open/Save File window, which is especially convenient.
