System Folders Customizer: Add special folders and apps to Computer folder

We are pleased to release System Folders Customizer, a free tool that lets you add Internet Explorer, important System folders, Control Panel applets to your This PC, Computer folder, Libraries and Desktop in Windows 8 / 7.

Add special folders and apps to This PC / Computer folder

Many a times we need to access these folders and we have to click a couple of times to reach them. This tool will let you access them in a click, since they are placed in regularly accessed places like Computer folder, Libraries, etc.

We had earlier posted on how you could add the Recycle Bin to your Computer folder. You can now do so in a click using System Folders Customizer, since it lets you add many such shortcuts to your Computer folder, Libraries and Desktop.

To add the desired shortcuts, simple check the selected boxes and click on Save Changes. To undo the changes, un-check the boxes and click Reset Changes. You may have to restart explorer.exe to see the changes on the desktop.

As mentioned, you can add such shortcuts to your Desktop too.

While our Windows Access Panel let you access these  controls or the in-built Windows programs from a single interface and while our Handy Shortcuts lets you add such shortcuts to the desktop, System Folders Customizer goes a step further by placing their shortcuts in Libraries etc.

System Folders Customizer v1.0 has been developed by our 13-year-old TWC Forum member Paras Sidhu for The Windows Club and has been tested on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit.

If you have any feedback, you can give it at TWC Forum, where its young developer will be happy to talk to you.

    THIS ALMOST CRASHED MY COMPUTER

    Who really needs to change their settings that much and if you did why not just put a shortcut on your desktop. That’s even 1 less click.

    Hi Author 🙂

    programs like this one (which is fantastic thank you paras!) you say are “not really requested by a lot of users, probably mostly by tech savvy users”.

    i think this is because being a windows user after a while you become a combination of comatose and on the edge of a breakdown because you very soon realize you are a slave of the features windows has decided you will want and are not allowed to think for yourself.

    (the features that windows decides you will want range from insulting and frustrating to admittedly somewhat helpful and occasionally pleasing.)

    that more people don’t request this type of program, is more because they are suffering from windows malaise and have lost all hope and realize there’s no reason complaining because microsoft is basically a tyrant, than an indication that they don’t want or need it.

    I have a list and an even longer list of things I wish I could do on windows, I’m sure I’m not the only one!

    thanks, just wanted to put in my two cents worth :-).

    (I’m always so grateful to developers who make helpful programs, and websites like Ghacks for letting us know about them, thank you xxxooo.)

    it’s the little things that go right sometimes that help you have a nice day.

    hoping you have a nice one too! 🙂
