Deskbar shortcuts in WDS 3

When I installed Windows Desktop Search 3 I re-discovered the deskbar and the really quick and easy way it provides to create shortcuts to folders, documents, applications and web sites.

I really disliked the default hotkey though and still do and I also got annoyed by its limitations, the last straw though was that I tried it in Vista and – it’s gone!

So I have switched to ActiveWords which provides everything that deskbar shortcuts did and much more and it has a great hot key [CTRL] [CTRL] as well is in place active words (just type anywhere and hit F8 or [SPACE][SPACE].

It’s great!
