Here’s another useful piece of software for those of you who are sick of the built-in options for file management, especially in Windows. Q-Dir located at http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=Freeware/Q-Dir will allow you to view up to four locations and once and it allows you to do everything that you would in a normal file manager. Additionally, it is simply an executable, which means that you can just place it on a portable drive and create a shortcut to it on your desktop.
I have been using this for several months now and have been quite happy with it.
