    When I tried to expand the .zip file, I got a message that the file was corrupt. I later found that I could extract the files individually. I installed and activated it, but now when I try to rum it, a process shows in the task manager, but nothing appears on the activity bar, the icon tray or the screen. A total waste of time and effort.

    I've been using this program (version 1.6) since it was last offered here, and I like it. I've found it to be helpful because I do keep a cluttered desktop (despite separate sections delineated via the "Fences" app.) Anything that helps me find things faster is a blessing for me!

    Tried to activate this several times but keep getting an error message

    I get the message ''Request Submitted Successfully'' then it takes exactly 61 seconds to run through the activation process then I get a message saying ''activation error - for more information please contact us at sale@mstech-co.com'' with some Arabic script above it.

    I installed and registered the programme and it is running in my system tray. However the entry is not showing in the context menu when I right click a folder. I have raised a ticket but wondered if others have this issue (windows 10 fully updated)

    I don't understand the appeal of these things. Don't people read anymore, If I want to distinguish folders that go together I use main folders and sub folders. And when did Directories become Folders.

    rww, My guess is directories became folders with the iconisation of file browsers where the standard icon for a directory file system object became a small picture of a folder... and people called it what they saw, a folder, and not what it was originaly called in MS-DOS/PC-DOS/unix and folders has less syllables so in todays lazy time and effort restrained world is quicker and easier to say and write.

    TK,

    Personally I think it has more to do with Windows (Microsoft) thinking new users cannot understand computer specific terms so everything had to relate to an old fashioned office and desk which is why the computer screen became a "desktop" and directories became file folders.

    Reply   |   Comment by rww  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

    rww, I use main folders and sub-folders too, but here is why these "things" appeal to me. I have tons of folders, tons of files, and I am adding to them every day. When I need to dig through a certain directory (folder) in the search for a specific file, a folder in the color red (for instance) immediately jumps out at me, and I begin my search there, where I likely have several more folders in various colors that hold files specific to a certain book, or theme, or research paper.

    Also, I like pretty things.

    I did try this particular application recently. It didn't - in my opinion - fulfill its promise. I currently use Folder Magic and Rainbow folders - both free.

    I have used this basic level program before. I find that the colors help me focus quickly on what shortcut folder I want to focus on, or which sub folders, when I change their colors by content or date, such as year or topic.

    Rick_S, this is actually a trick developers like myself use to train users by color coordination. Of IT had to give it a name and its called Mind-Mapping. Development trick to get users to follow a certain path in an application. I use it for client/server application development.

    DEBUG, I retired from IT in 2004. I know that colors were used before then. Thank you for giving it a name, i.e. mind mapping.
