I'm trying to figure out some ways of organizing my desktop that contains lots of files, shortcuts to folders, shortcuts to programs.
This has sort of been discussed before but not quite what I have in mind.
I'm looking for a Desktop Icon Utility/Launchbar that would (hopefully) do some/all of the following.
IconCorrals - free floating icon toolbar/corrals that could be set up to show a number of icon w/ or without text labels. WXP free floating toolbar sort of works but too often disappears or moves around and isn't really reliable. Ideally the icons could be set to any size using appropriate links to image files and the corral size and location could be locked. Idea is to be able to put program or command line shortcuts into theme specific "areas" - ie music area, backup area, database reports area. I know I could use something like FARR but my mind is more visually oriented...
FolderCorral - rectangular area that could be locked for size and location, containing folders or shortcuts to folders - allow drag and drop of files for copying or moving. Moving the cursor over the folder would pop up a folder/list/icon view from which you could click to select and open/act on a file/shortcut.
Corrals could be edited/modified by dragging and dropping program or folder shortcuts or folders.
Do my ramblings make sense? Does anyone have any suggestions for something that would help me get a handle on my messy virtual desktop?
Thanks for any input.
