Explorer Alternative enables Hidden features
There is application called Powerdesk that is an excellent Windows Explorer alternative.
On install I would uncheck all entries it suggest if you want to use your current archive extractor and Windows Explorer as the shell
If you've every looked in SysInternals Autoruns and noticed an entry named CopyasPath, it never shows up in Windows Explore on the right-click menu anywhere.
Powerdesk enables this hidden feature as well as other which show you all the locations that you can copy and/or move files to. This could only be accomplished before by a certain key combination.
You can also drag and drop shortcuts to the Launchbar giving you one-click access to your most used programs.
Powerdesk has the familiar features which are not available in Windows 7 Explorer such as Undo, Cut, Copy, Back and Forward buttons and Up One Leve.l It also has Move To and Copy To as well
It can extract, make, test integrety of zip files, and UUencode and Decode also.

If you want to remove the nag screen it can be done using Resource Hacker. If you need instructions, just post back.
In my follow up post I'll show the advantages of Powerdesk's Find Files and Folders search utility which blows Windows Search away.

i think you'll be satisfied with it.
You can drag and drop all you most frequently used Icons to the Launch bar.
I'd also suggest you navigate to the C:\Program Files\Vcom\Powerdesk directory, right-click on pdfind.exe and drag a shortcut to your desktop.
This search utility is excellent.
