    Video: Give XCopy a graphical interface with this free download | TR Dojo | TechRepublic.com
    Overview: The XCopy command has risen from the ashes of deprecation to save you time and make your file management tasks easier. This tool automates the process for XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
    Many Windows power users were more than a little annoyed when Xcopy was deprecated in Windows Vista in favor of RoboCopy–especially those with lots of scripts that made use of Xcopy. Luckily, Xcopy is back in Windows 7 and TechRepublic blogger Greg Shultz has updated his Xcopy tool to work automatically in Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. During this episode of TR Dojo, I show you how to download, install, and use this free tool.

    One nice easy tweak you can make is comment out line 65 of XCopyTool.hta like so:
    'Set SelectedFolder = WindowsShell.BrowseForFolder(0, Prompt, &H0001, 17)

    and replace it with the same line but with the &H0001 flag changed to &H0011 giving this result:
    Set SelectedFolder = WindowsShell.BrowseForFolder(0, Prompt, &H0011, 17)

    Setting that flag option adds an Edit Line to the BrowseForFolder dialog. Instead of having to click down and expand the tree to pick a folder you can type or paste it in. It doesn't accept drag & drop but at least if you have your source and destination folders open in explorer windows you can click the title or address bar and copy/paste into the dialog. Makes it a lot easier than clicking down.

    I didn't see The Ultimate Boot Disc in the list. If you click on the link, and scroll down the page to see all the tools it has you'll freak out. It's great to have a single CD that has so many kick-ass DOS tools on it. I would be lost without it. And of course, it's absolutely free. You know the old saying "If it's for free, it's for me!"
    Hiren's Boot CD is regularly updated, the last one being V10.1 I think

    One really piece of software (for me of course) I'm still using since windows95 is Pop-Mouse by pointix.

    It's an utility that allows you to configure 4 mouse gestures and 4 mouse placements to open various dialogs, menus, sub-utilities and favorite place holders. For instance with one clockwise mouse movement I open a resizable dialog with all the shortcuts I've set in. Counter clockwise is the same but for system shortcuts. There are menus and sub menus and many all configurable things saving time, mouse deplacement and clicks.

    the interface is based on basic elements of windows so don't expect shiny glassy vista elements but maybe you'l find it worth the try.
    Being so old, the company is long gone but this is abandonware so it's legal. You can find it there with another utility they release at that time allowing scrolling without a scrolling button.

    And cherry on top, it works like a charm on 7ven without any compatibility trick.
