Visual Subst

29, Aug 2006


This is a small tool which allows you to associate the most accessed directories with virtual drives. It uses the same API like console “subst” utility, but makes it easier to create and remove virtual drives from a convenient and user friendly graphical interface.

Generally, a virtual drive is just a symbolic link in the Local MS-DOS Device namespace. It is one more of Windows features being added for backward compatibility with old programs. So virtual drives are objects of the operating system, and Visual Subst just can create, enumerate and delete these objects. All local MS-DOS device names are removed when the user is logging off. To handle this issue, Visual Subst saves the list of virtual drives into an INI-file and can load them the next time.

This program is free and runs only on Windows 2000/XP and newer operating systems.

Visual Task Tips 2.1

Visual Task Tips is a free lightweight shell enhancement utility that provides thumbnail preview image for each task that is currently running in the Windows Taskbar (just as you’ve probably seen in the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista). Why not install this useful application while waiting for the upcoming Vista operating system, that is supposed to be officially released somewhere in 2007… 😉

By using Visual Task Tips you can quickly find the needed application window, especially if you are constantly working with lots of applications running all at once and your Taskbar is always overcrowded.
