Updated in Nov. 2009.

Details and download

My only complaint is that it's one or all but otherwise it's one of my favorites.

Would be nice if they update other PT's for Win 7.

I agree. I've never quite figured out where PowerToys fit in at MS. Developed by employees? Internal tools? Might be an interesting story, wish I knew.

Don't know. I'd read that they were developed by employees but "not officially supported by Microsoft".  Don't recall ever seeing a detailed explanation if they were originally official MS projects...that they decided not to include for some reason. Or if they were just independent tinkerings.

Ah so...from a guy who says he wrote a lot of the powertoys:

Cool, thought it might be something like that.

Some of the best DOS programs were in the IBM "PDS" series which were written by IBM employees but because they were IBM employees they couldn't sell them any other way. Good stuff and cheap to boot.

Makes me wonder what other stuff would be out, available for free, if employees were "unleashed".

Would have used this if I had not found another a while back: Virtual Desktop Manager.

Now there is an easier way. SyncToy, a free PowerToy for Microsoft Windows, is an easy to use, highly customizable program that helps users to do the heavy lifting involved with the copying, moving, and synchronization of different directories. Most common operations can be performed with just a few clicks of the mouse, and additional customization is available without additional complexity. SyncToy can manage multiple sets of folders at the same time; it can combine files from two folders in one case, and mimic renames and deletes in another case. Unlike other applications, SyncToy actually keeps track of renames to files and will make sure those changes get carried over to the synchronized folder
