    Michael:

    Great tip--Command Central: Windows functions in one place. Installed on my Win 7 desktop just fine. Unfortunately, I did not want it there, so drug it to one of my program folders. Big Mistake! Just hovering over the entry filled the screen with all the options. Thankfully, I was able to use Windows Explorer and delete it.

    Is there any way to structure Command Central so it can reside in an Windows Explorer Program File list?

    Thanks, access-mdb. Just tried again by copy/pasting and it worked for me this time. I tried a few times before but must have gotten a space added in or something.

    Underused Tools, All Commands--
    I tried this on my Win7 PC. I made the file, opened it, and got nothing.

    Just said "Folder empty".

    Thanks

    PS: 8/8/14...Problem solved; originally did not include the "{}" around the file name. Now works like a charm.

    I used the link in the article. I have heard back from Kevin C at Conectify stating: We have a version of the Connectify installer with ads for upgrading Lite users. Some AV software will flag this as malicious.

    You can try downloading from the following link instead.

    I was able to download from that location.
    Glad to know you managed to download. Thanks for posting back.

    I failed to notice that this was for 7 or 8 I tried it in vista.

    To create this folder, take the following steps:

    Right-click a free spot on the desktop and select New/Folder.
    Give the new folder any name you wish, as long as it's followed by a period and the following string of characters: {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    For example, the file name could be something similar to this: All Commands.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

    Double-click to open the folder, and it should be populated with more than 250 functions.

    When I created the folder, my screen went blank and I could not get to te start menu or anything else.

    I had to boot from a linux dvd and delete the folder from the desktop and than my PC worked again in windows.

    I would have been screwed if I did not have the linux dvd.

    The Quick Launch Toolbar is Still Available

    Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I despise the Taskbar "Pin" feature in Win7 and 8. Although I was a late comer to this feature also, I grew to love the Quick Launch toolbar. If done correctly, it enables you to see all your favorite programs, browsers and websites even while the screen is full of other stuff. Instructions for creating it are at Tech Republic, search for "Restore the Quick Launch". In my case, I double size the Taskbar and make all the icons as small as possible. This enables me to have two rows of icons, like this:Quicklaunch.PNG

    I could not get anything but "folder empty" until I renamed it Godmode, then it came up in all its glory in Win7. Very useful article!

    You can easily create IE shortcut tiles on the Start screen. Go to the Start screen, click the IE tile and navigate to the desired web site. Either (1) swipe down from the top of the screen or (2) click the "..." in the lower right corner to display the address bar. Click the star icon (pop-up text = Favorites). Click the push pin icon (pop-up text ="Pin Site"). Then click "Pin to Start". The "Pin to Start" window also allows you to (1) scroll through images from the web page to use on the tile and (2) change the default text that appears on the tile. I drag all my IE shortcut tiles into their own group on the Start screen. This really makes it easy to open your favorite web sites from the Start screen, especially if you have a touch screen monitor or tablet.
