As a Windows user, I deal with some executables (.exe files) on a daily basis. These are portable programs that need not be installed and work instantly when the .exe file is double clicked.
Good thing about such utilities – they don’t need to be installed, and hence don’t take up space. Bad thing – they don’t show up under programs in the start menu, and if you’ve got a cluttered desktop and tend to save these files there, finding them when you need them could be like finding a needle in a haystack; it could take a hell lot of time!
Here’s a neat productivity tip for Windows 7 users when it comes to dealing with executables – pin them to the start menu. Yes, that way they’ll always be displayed in the start menu right on top. Just right-click on a file and click Pin to Start Menu.
