NewDeal Hot Tip 1701
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.
