Instant File Opener: Open multiple files, folders, applications, URLs quickly

In all my years of experience as a content writer, covering scores of free programs, I have learned it’s the need that makes developers design applications and tools for users convenience. Add to that laziness also! Some programs are created to make your work much easier. Of course, why one must take extra efforts for doing tasks if you have a tool beforehand to get the job done. Instant File Opener is one great tool that I came across during my browsing excursion.

Instant File Opener for Windows

Instant File Opener is a simple tool designed to help you create a list with files, folders, applications and URLs that you want opened every time you start a Windows session.

The lightweight tool settles just for 2 MB of space. The installation too, is quick and requires no registration. Upon launch, you find a dedicated menu appearing on your computer screen allowing you to add and manage items on the list easily using the commands there. The application’s main window boasts a taskbar, toolbar, table list and a few drop down lists and buttons.

You can add files you want to be displayed during the startup or add list items by right clicking the mouse button on the table/dragging and dropping files and folders into the table.

The list created is not final as you get an edit option to make the changes as and when required. How you want each list to be opened can be selected from the list type drop down box. If you tick the ‘open at system startup’ check box, it will create an entry for you on the windows start up application list.

You can edit individually the running options for each item on the list. Each item in the list can be opened in three states,

  • Normal
  • Minimized
  • Maximized

When running a program, you can select the arguments you want the program to run with. Instant File Opener is also equipped with a handy clean-up tool. The tool upon activation scans through the list for any non-existent files and folders and removes them completely, if found.

    Reminds me of Lacuna Launcher which is portable, under 500 KB, gives you control over timing, and the ability to create multiple lists. Been using it every working day for many years.
