SysPad's inspiration came from a program a co-worker was using at work to organize his most used folders.
The program was very limited in functionality though, and he asked me if I would go ahead and do something a little more customizable and to his liking.
It is created in VB.NET 2008 and is only compatible with the 3.5 .NET Framework.
FolderPad: A folder management window
* Easily access common system locations (e.g. My Computer, Program Files, etc.) with the buttons on the left of the window
* Easily manage folders on your PC or mapped network drives from a context menu
* Manually add known locations that you can't find in the Folder browser.
* Give meaningful names to these locations so they are easy to find in the list, and change them if you want
* Sort the entries in the list, putting your most used paths near the top (or bottom)
TrayPad: A Notepad-esque window
* Save notes as you type; easily find notes that load everytime you load Windows
* Highlight a URL and right-click to go to the website using your favorite browser
* Rename and Organize the tabs so you know exactly where your notes are
* If you program, export the selected tab to Notepad; even select the syntax highlighting before exporting
* Save or print the contents of the currently selected tab
AutoUpdater: SysPad now checks for updated versions at it's run time and gives you the option to download and install the new version.
# Title: SysPad
# Description: A utility program that has two forms, one showing 5 tabs with textboxes which can be printed. The second form organizes folders chosen by the user. This is to provide quick access to commonly used folders. Especially useful in an IT/DP setting where lots of folders are being accessed.
