Shortcut Bar comes with an access database file for storing shortcut entries and user preferences. Its setup program also installs a help file, icon file, and a couple of image files. Shortcut Bar allows you to immediately find and access your files and applications without the need to close or minimize windows and lets you clear icons off of your desktop. It is non-intrusive because it activates itself when the mouse hovers over it and then de-activates when the mouse leaves or when the file has been opened. The files and application icons are grouped and consolidated to a small location on your desktop. As long as you can see a portion of the Shortcut Bar, you can easily activate it. Various options allow you to customize its behavior. Pay and register right in the application. Sharing the application with friends will earn you multiple rebates or you can register it with the coupon code CNET for a 20 percent discount. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
