Desk Accessories Folder

The README file in the Desk Accessories folder says that programs launched from that folder stay above or on top of other programs. An example use of this is to place the Text File Editor in the Desk Accessories folder, and then open up a text file. As you work in another application, the Text File Editor will stay on top so you can read it easily. You could use this feature like those sticky notes that some people put around the edges of their monitor.

Another useful idea for Desk Accessories is to provide easy access to other software, because of their location in the Express Menu. In NewManager, create a new launcher for a DOS prompt. Place it in the Desk Accessories folder for an instant shell to DOS: only two mouse clicks.
