Open++ enhances your "Right-Click" menu

It's a simple fact of life: if you want to get anything done on your computer, you're going to have to mess with files and folders. As much as we might prefer to only deal with applications—run Microsoft Word, but don't worry about DOC files—we're still going to have to copy, rename, tweak timestamps, or otherwise manipulate files directly. While you've got all the power you need to take care of business this way, it's not always as easy or convenient as we might hope for.

Open++ is like putting Windows Explorer on steroids. It adds extra functionality to the Context Menu—that's what pops-up when you "Right-Click" on a file or folder—to make your life easier. Along with grabbing a file's path or feeding command-line arguments to an application, you can also do things like register a DLL, eject whatever's in your optical drive, and much more. You can choose to make actions apply only to a file, a folder, or both; choose to work on one item at a time, or a bunch of items selected at the same time. You can even customize the behavior of particular applications on your machine.

Open++ is a Windows application. It runs under Windows 2000 with Internet Explorer 5.0 and later. There are 32- and 64-bit versions.

    I don’t see a use for most of these, except for maybe copy file path, which you can use other utilities or do yourself.
