The Windows Directory Lister Comes in a Free Portable Version
If you've ever wished there was an easier way to organize your desktop computer's hard drives, you can thank the Windows Directory Lister (or Krkowshi for short) for its helpful features. Windows Directory Lister Pro is an easy-to-use professional tool that enables you to create a handy list of files on a user-defined destination, including a CD-ROM, DVD, floppy, or USB drive. While it comes bundled with several handy parameters, it only sports a simple and clean design which gives quick access to just a small set of carefully organized functions. The best part is that this list is always current, as it's updated each time Windows boots up. That means that you don't have to waste time trying to remember what you set aside to download just a few minutes before the machine is ready for use.
This powerful Windows utility works great when you're dealing with multiple computer systems that share the same Windows installation. If you want to open a particular file or folder on one computer, all you need to do is highlight it in the Windows Directory Lister window, click the "Open" button, and then let the program do the rest. You can add as many folders as you like, even multiple ones per computer - but the more you create, the bulkier the listing becomes, so keeping a tidy, simple listing is important. You can also add a default value to the Windows Directory Lister window to create a "read-only" folder, so you won't accidentally add or remove any items from this list.
Windows Directory Lister works very well with Windows XP as well as Windows Vista. For Windows Vista users, the program does not yet have an application that handles automatic updating of the Windows Directory Lister, so you may have to perform this task manually every time you make changes to any of the listed directories. However, since updating the Windows Directory Lister is quick and easy, you probably won't even notice it's happening - and even if you do, the changes are fairly small. This program is a powerful little tool that should be on your desktop all the time, making it a breeze to find and identify all of your computers' files and data.
