Hi all
Was wondering if there was anything like DM2 (http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=5928.0) for windows 7.
Thinking of moving to win7 soon, running xp atm. not sure how it will work out, without DM2!

Anyone know of anything which can do any part of what DM2 can do?
if not, and your a developer, why not have a go at making one, and ill post it on my site appaholic!

Thanks in advance!

You can't even run DM2 on Vista.

I expect PS HotFolders of course will be updated for Win 7, but it took the author for ever to update from XP to Vista, so I wouldn't wait for it to happen.

Piky Folders is a part of Conceptworld's Piky Suite and will be updated for Win 7.

I already use a different application for quick access to folders.

I was specifically looking for something that allowed me to add extra functions to the min max n close buttons on any window, to roll up, or minimize to system tray, or minimize to an icon.

- oh, I (obviously) didn't understood that. There used to be some (for Win 2K and XP), but I have stopped taking interest in which may or may not have been updated for Vista, not to  mention Win 7, because my AnVir Task Manager Pro gives me all that. I don't know what features their free version will give you, if any.

Thats quite handy! looks like alot of tools i use but all in one. I forgot to mention, not bothered if free or not. Had a quick look, but i couldn't see about rolling windows up or down, which is the main thing i really need!

- you're right; no blinds. I've not used such feature for fifteen years, so I didn't think of it - I don't even know where to get it!

Cheers, that looks like what i need. however, i read in the article that some of the functions can be attain via auto hotkeys? would roll up and down be one of those? call me fussy, but im so used to middle clicking on minimize now, that i often truly believe other machines are broken when it doesn't work.

How about Pitaschio? It can fulfill many of your requirements, and it runs under Vista. I'm also completely used to middle- and right-clicking, but on the title bar, which seems to me even more comfortable.

PikyFolders already work on Windows Vista & 7. Note that Windows Vista and above provide a different file open/save window. Favorite folders are already accessible using the "Favorites" link in file open/save window. The folders marked as favorite in PikyFolders are already available through Vista's Favorites link. PikyFolders does this for you.

Hmm, BTW, ac'tivAid is now available as a Win7 build, too.
(The dev. build linked there.)
