Access easily Programs, Folders, Settings, Web Sites, with Favorite Launcher

Having opened the Favorite Launcher using the Paster shortcut (HotkeyP), if you are on a dialogue asking you to open or save a file etc in a folder you can select even by pasting its path, pressing the C drive takes you immediately to the C Drive from inside the program that asks for a location.

If Favorite Launcher is opened with the Launcher shortcut (HotkeyL), pressing the C Drive opens Windows Explorer in the C drive.

Holding the Ctrl button of your keyboard while clicking a Favorite launcher folder, instead of opening this folder you will get a list of its subfolders. Again, holding Ctrl while clicking one of these subfolders will give you a list of subfolders of this subfolder… Instead of Ctrl+Click you can also use Ctrl+Enter to get subfolder lists.

Favorite Launcher is based on Savage Favorite Folders, and comes preconfigured to launch popular folders, functions and applets, even to let you see how configuration works. You can replace most of these or just add your own.
