Windows 7 System Folders Customizer
Back in February I reviewed the Computer Customizer software which you could use to add custom folders to the My Computer interface of the Windows 7 operating system.
The very same developer has now released a similar tool that expands the original program's functionality and adds to it.
System Folders Customizer integrates all the abilities of Computer Customizer and adds options to add special folders to the Libraries pane and the computer desktop as shortcuts.
The developer has furthermore added new program links to the program so that you get more of everything when you run it on your system instead of the original tool.
The portable program displays configuration options in a tabbed interface. Here is an overview of the available configuration options and links that can be added to the operating system:
- My Computer: Internet Explorer, Tablet PC Settings, Display, Fonts, System, Autoplay, Sync Center, Windows Firewall, Parental Controls, Power Options, Backup and Restore, Color Management, Default Location, Indexing Options, Performance, Region and Language, Language Selector, Folder Options, Infrared, Date and time, Sensors, Windows Slide Show, Devices and Printers, Getting Started, Administrators Tools, Phone and Modem, Printers, Biometric Devices, Remote and Desktop Connection, Network and Sharing Center, Ease of Access, Network, Pen and Touch, Recovery
- My Computer 2: Homegroup, Libraries, Credential Manager, Troubleshooting, Default Programs, Programs and Features, User Accounts, Text to Speech, Keyboard, Computer Management, Show Desktop, Switch Windows, Portable Devices, System Restore, Taskbar and Start Menu, Notification Area Icons, Windows Mobility Center, Network Connections, Speech Recognition, Windows Anytime Upgrade, Action Center, Desktop Gadgets, Recycle Bin, Windows Update, Personalization, Control Panel, Internet Options, Device Manager, Mouse, Sound.
- Desktop, Libraries: System, Display, Fonts, Power Options, Programs and features, Administrators Tools, Network and Sharing Center, Ease of Access, Folder Options, Performance, Printers, User Accounts, Keyboard, Taskbar and Start Menu, Notification Area Icons, Speech Recognition, Mouse, Sound, Windows Update, Getting Started, Control Panel, Internet Options, Device Manager, Home Group, Action Center, Desktop Gadgets, Phone and Mode, Windows Firewall, Color Management.
All that it takes to add one, multiple or all special links is to select them in the program interface and click the save changes button afterwards. The changes are immediately visible in Windows Explorer and on the computer desktop. If you have Windows Explorer open, you may need to close or switch to another folder first before you see the new items listed.
Windows 7 users can download System Folders Customizer from the Windows Club website. The program is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Windows 7 operating system.Advertisement
