I've found using the folder menu in QTTabBar does this fine for me. Just drag the file over the folder and wait for the menu to pop up then navigate down until I find the folder I want.

I think he's looking for a recursive folder menu that runs from the sendto folder.

We used that filter over at Aqua-soft and for an immediate solution to a spamming increase it was great but, overall it generates more work for the administering/moderating the forum.

Good active members are still the best bet and I haven't seen any tech solution that doesn't increase the administrative workload.

No, naturally the first thing I did when I found this out was I went and pirated all their software. ::)

You too? Glad I'm not the only one.  ;)

Seriously though they've been really generous to me. It's got to be three years since I bought DesktopX Pro and because of my financial situation they still let me continue to run the updated Betas.

Yes, I know they're not the polished versions but, a feather in their cap. It's also a bit encouraging to know that your contributions in their forums and in widget creation is appreciated.

In fact I'm actually kicking around the idea of creating a gadget in DesktopX for NANY '09.

This might help with auto refresh. It's one of the lines in the toggle hidden files/extensions script found here

PostMessage, 0x111, 28931,,, ahk_id %ID%

In that script there's a 500ms Sleep command to allow time for the changes

You need to run the command line from within the folder.

Something like this

C:\all_files>7za.exe a all_files.7z -r *

Still getting my scripts organized but, did you try using *.*? I think that should get all the files without the folder.

Haven't used it in awhile but, also didn't uninstall it which means I intended to give it a more thorough going over.

Also, didn't find it all that complicated but, lacking in general. The RSS feeds are my favourite feature and can be sort of like a heads up display for viewing feeds at a glance.

If there were a folder on my system that continually got updated w/ shortcuts to folders (including Special Folders) I accessed recently it seems like that might be used toward the end in question, but I don't know of one.  Or may be there is some way to apply this app appropriately that I'm not seeing...

Yeah, hadn't noticed that Special Folders aren't put until after I attached it to the context menu using Fast Explorer (just for fun). Definitely a useful idea if something contained everything.

My computer crashed over a week ago but, I did have folders and app's showing in recent document's. I'm pretty sure the app's options was a tweak I found at Kelly's Corner. Can't remember where I found the folder tweak.

Edit: Okay, I think the folder's are listed under Recent folder's but, not displayed in the start menu. MenuApp will show everything in the recent folder and instruction's are provided for setting up special folders. It may even be portable? The only annoyance is that it repeatedly replaces itself in the startup folder.

Maybe GridMove could be adapted to this?
Would take some work though and I'm not too familiar with AHK script's as of yet.

An issue would be the activating the zones but, maybe you could designate a corner or edge of the screen to activate.

I'm gonna go out on the edge here and guess you're from the West Coast?
In particular Pot City. :/

Edit: If you also giggle when you click the "go down" link at the top of the thread then seek immediate professional help.

Since XP's an operating system it's kind of moot but, easily replaced with Linux which if memory service me correctly is free. ;)

After I watched it was trying to pin down what was missing. Many of your points I agree with but, will have to give this a few more episodes before I make my final decision.

While I'm avid fan of Lost it wasn't until a few episodes in that I was truly impressed. Also, to compare the depth of characters from Lost to Fringe is somewhat limiting, after all how much character depth was there in the first episode of Lost? Most people watched because of the action and the characters have been slowly revealed to us.

Also, I disagree  on your main character analysis. How many shows exist with "lone wolf" men with continuous shortfalls in their personal lives? This character has focused on and been successful in her career. Many people do that.

One word sums it up... "Potential". The capacity lies there but, the writing needs to rise above technical adequacy and character development needs to happen soon.

Yeah that updater annoys the crap out of me.

I'd think google's more concerned about browser's coming with built in adblocking capabilities and restricted capabilities for customizing your search options.

Even when someone get's adblocking enabled in Chrome the search features are still beneficial for google. Although, I'm not impressed with Chrome in general and it won't be replacing my default browser anytime soon, it works really slick with their own services which makes it useful to me.

Haven't done any scripting in AHK but, couldn't you just use an array or a loop statement?

...Jingle Keyboard

Not to be confused with that all time Christmas Classic "Jingle All the Way"!  :P

No problem.

Here's the script for anyone. Uses standard WSH regular expressions

'Basic folder recursion, recurse folder, enumerate files and folders

Option Explicit

' create FSO
Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Dim strPattern, strReplace

' Text String to search target path for
' Text String to replace target path with

' Call Recursion First
' Path to Folder Holding your shortcuts
RecurseFolder "c:\temp"

Sub RecurseFolder(strFolderPath)
 ' get folder
 Dim objFolder : Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strFolderPath)

 ' On Error Resume Next
 Dim objFile
 For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
If objFSO.GetExtensionName(objFile.Path)="lnk" Then ChangeShortcut(objFile.Path)
        ' WScript.Echo "File: " & objFile.Name
 ' On Error Goto 0
 ' On Error Resume Next
 Dim objSubFolder
 ' loop through sub folders
 For Each objSubFolder In objFolder.SubFolders
        'WScript.Echo "Folder: " & objSubFolder.Name
         ' have the sub call itself sending the sub folder path
         RecurseFolder objSubFolder.Path
 ' On Error Goto 0
End Sub

Sub ChangeShortcut(oFile)
Dim regEx
Dim objLink, oTargetOld, oTargetNew
Set objLink = objShell.CreateShortcut(oFile)
  Set regEx = New RegExp            ' Create regular expression.
  regEx.Pattern = strPattern            ' Set pattern.
  regEx.IgnoreCase = False            ' Make case insensitive.
  oTargetNew=regEx.Replace(oTargetOld, strReplace)   ' Make replacement.
End Sub

Actually, I tested Andy's suggestion out, mind you on virtual drives but, it worked. Although, I moved the files first followed by the shortcut.

Will whip up a vbscript and post it.

What Andy said should work if the target directory is the same path except for the drive. I really like Shades suggestion and have to make a note of that for my future use.

If the linkchanger app doesn't do it let me know as I can wip a vbscript file up in five or 10 minutes to do this. May do the script either way. ;)

That Skrommel guy always amazes me!  :Thmbsup:

I was going to suggest Hob Comments but, it doesn't automatically pop up and
when I just tried it the comment was placed on the target exe and not the shortcut.

 :Thmbsup: I've tried them all and this is the best. Glad to see they fixed some issues so, I can use it again.

That $50 million dollar suit isn't the reason for higher truck prices it's the billion dollar one for exploding gas tanks that they continually ignored.

It just makes it easier to blame one stupid lawsuit instead of their own ongoing incompetence.

Ta ta I'm off to put a hot cup of coffee between my legs. :P

Have been using Magic Formation since January and it's my primary "visual dock" but, have to give credit the original finder Firecracker6 over at

Be careful with Orbit because last time I used it there was adware bundled in.

Are you sure about that? I checked the content of the .zip file (orbit0350full) and absolutely nada. However, the project is dead but the source code is available for download.

It was long time ago and maybe I tried it through a download site. It wasn't major adware either just yahoo toolbar.
