I don't side with either faction. I use both. They have different strengths and weaknesses. AHK is more suitable for Transpose. I wrote other hotkey apps such as ReOpen and Folder Cache that are done in AutoIt3.

KeyDrive 1.6.0.0

KeyDrive is a Hotkey that sits in the tray for opening drives in Explorer. Instead of making a Hotkey with every drive letter it takes the approach of using 5 Hotkeys for various tasks.

Use the About command in the Tray Menu for Hotkey info.

Just search for the KeyDrive download link on this page:
Hotkeys

Note that the "Snap" type functions only use the Right Winkey. Normal Windows7 Snap functionality is still available using the Left Winkey.

KeyDrive does not snap open windows. It only opens drives in Explorer and positions the window(s).

Navigation Pane Customizer

I was looking for a way to change the order of shortcuts in the Explorer Navigation Pane. Turns out it really can't be done. (You can drag Favorites around, but not the other shortcuts.) I wanted Computer at the top. But I achieved nearly the effect I wanted using:
Windows 7 Navigation Pane Customizer: Show, Hide, Rename Items In Windows Explorer Navigation Pane | door2windows

I only left Libraries and Computer enabled. I collapsed Libraries and expanded Computer. Now to change to another drive I don't have to vertical scroll.

Plus it does not require a reboot. When you click Apply you can see Explorer gets restarted as the desktop flickers for a second. Nice little freebie!!

I have not used this app,, but according to this post on that site...

Currently when it restarts Explorer.exe, it restarts it as admin as it's elevated itself. Can you make Explorer launch a regular non-elevated process or can you make it not restart Explorer automatically but tell users to log off and log back on? Running Explorer as admin isn't a good thing from a security perspective.

Check to make sure that this app is not starting Explorer.exe as Admin. This would be a big huge no no and a security risk.

A Simple and Flexible Image Viewer

Moo0 ImageViewer is a very simple and flexible image viewer. Its window occupies minimum space on desktop and also resizes very flexibly. Also, it now has many useful filters in its compact body. For example, "Cartoon Reader" filter can make image texts far more readable, and "Clear Photo" filter can make some pictures look far more dynamic. Do you sometimes want to see pictures in your own taste? or want to keep multiple pictures open on desktop? Then, this program may be the one you've been looking for.
