2.) Drag that to any monitor.
3.) Right click on that panel, and click “Add to Panel”
4.) Select “Window List” under Desktop and Windows
5.) Click Add.
6.) Add as many widgets you want to the taskbar
7.) Click Close, and you’re done.


Access all files on your hard disk from the system tray

Hawkscope is an incredibly useful program that allows you to access your hard disk’s content right from your system tray. Forget about My Computer or the desktop because Hawkscope does not simply show you the hard drives but the entire contents on it through pop open menus. The best part is Hawkscope is available for all the three major platforms – Windows, Linux and Mac and it’s open source.


The program allows you to add custom locations through the Quick Access tab on the settings window. You can also set to view hidden files or even blacklist certain locations from showing. This application is going to save anybody who works on a computer precious amount of time. I’m totally sold.
