Hi Brink,

I think TinyWall should be added to the list:

TinyWall is a free software to harden and control the advanced firewall built into Windows Vista and Windows 7.

TinyWall - A free, lightweight and non-intrusive firewall

PastePath 1.5.0.0

How many times have you opened Explorer and created a new folder. Now you want to save a file from an editor or other program using SaveAs Dialog? The choice then is drill down in the SaveAs Dialog and click the button, or go to the Explorer Window address field highlight and copy, then paste into the SaveAs so you don't have to type in the path.

With PastePath running in the tray, as soon as you create the new folder and it's the active window, then just open the SaveAs Dialog, click to put the focus to the Edit Line, and Control-Right Click. The folder path from the last active Explorer Window is pasted in. A simple hotkey. But it saves a lot of drilling down.

It's free for you to use at your own risk. You may download from my Hotkeys Page

See the Requirements Section at the top of the page.
The zip includes the Autohotkey_L scripts, custom icon, compiled exe and Readme.txt. If you compile it yourself I recommend using the latest AutoHotkey_L 32 bit Unicode build.

Edit: Update to 1.2.0.0. I changed the hotkey to Control Winkey Right Click. This should avoid conflicts. Now the target window may be any window that accepts text paste from clipboard. For example, a text editor, any dialog with an edit line etc..

Edit: Update to 1.3.0.0 Now saves and restores text Clipboard contents around the path paste.

Edit: Update to 1.5.0.0 Added ability to paste into command prompts. Paths containing space(s) are wrapped in double quotes. See Readme.txt for details.

Hey kado I ma a bit slow on the ermm uptake but is that just for Ubuntu based systems or can I use it for Windows? I shouldn't say it I know but Ubuntu has got me out of a few scrapes from time to time and really I don't mind it.

Sort of bit like a lifejacket

YUMI is a linux based system but you can have windows ISOs in it.. I have a stick with the following windows based ISOs.

1. Windows Defender Offline
2. Macrium WinPE rescue disk.
3. Windows Rescue disk.
4. Hirens CD.

and a number of Linux based rescue systems UBCD, Kapersey, Puppy Linux etc.
