I found this on a "Tips and Tricks" site which is quite simple and uses some of the techniques mentioned before. Still not as nice as Karen's, but useful and fast nonetheless. First make a batch file named "PrintDir" (or something even more ingenious) and stick it in C:\ (or somewhere appropriate):@echo offThen make a new reg key:
dir %1 /-p /o:gn > "%temp%\Listing"
start /w notepad /p "%temp%\Listing"
exitHKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Print Directory\commandwith the following value:c:\printdir.bat %1\Now you can right click on any directory and select the "Print Directory" command and it will print a list of all folder names inside. To print a list of files also add "/s" after the "dir" command in the batch file. In fact, look at the DIR help page for even more options.
who was it that was going to write up a little something on Powerpro?I don't recall,
our new mini-user-review section of the forum would be an ideal place for itbut I put one up anyways.
PowerPro lets you take control of how you use Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. Run commands and configure your system any way you want.
PowerPro gives you a compact and powerful launch bar, menu, and tray icon facility. But this is just the start. With a little experimenting with its configuration, you'll find that you can use PowerPro to change the way you work with your system. The source of its power is the way PowerPro integrates three capabilities:
* Running commands: Tool bars, tray icons, hot keys, mouse actions, menus, timer, scheduler.
* Controlling other program's windows: Close, minimize, maximize, roll-up to caption, tray minimize, position.
* Providing utility functions: Send keystrokes to programs, run commands when windows first open, virtual desktops, clipboard extender, keyboard macros, shutdown, show all folder files in a menu, sounds, wallpaper, and screensaver activation and randomization.
"Replacement Shells" are programs that are run in place of the normal Microsoft explorer shell to give yourA (fairly) comprehensive list of alt shells past and present can be found at Shellfront's list page. Many of the links are broken but Google can help, and a link copied and pasted to the WayBack Machine can get you some shells that are long dead support-wise, but still work. Many developers of dead shells are now working in active shell projects, so hit the forums and take names.
desktop a completely different look & feel. In simplest terms, they replace the default Windows interface (Start
Button, Task Bar, icons on desktop) with an interface either borrowed from other operating systems (like Unix,
MacOS, or the Amiga) or something completely new and different.
Note, in almost every case, these applications are doing things that Microsoft never intended to happen on their
operating systems. In addition, many are in early beta (or even alpha) release. That means that some bugs and
minor incompatibilities are to be expected. But the good news is that many are in active development, which means
that bugs and incompatibilities are rapidly being addressed.
