Reader Question: What do you add to *your* SendTo folder?
Jacques Bensimon recently posed this question internally and I was curious to push it a bit further out to see if anyone out there had anything additional of interest.
I am curious to know what you guys add to your Explorer “SendTo” folder – always up for good new ideas.
Here’s my list:
Alternate Streams – mostly to “bulk-unblock” IE downloads
Dependency Walker x64 – what DLLs does this 64-bit executable require? what function calls?
Dependency Walker – ditto for 32-bit
Everything – quickly list everything in a folder tree
EXE Explorer – parse EXE header, show strings, hex view, etc.
Folder Search – (NirSoft SearchMyFiles) Search for files with criteria (strings, timestamps, attributes, etc.)
IrfanView – view image(s)
MetaPad – view/edit text file (can handle/convert UNIX line breaks, can search & replace with newlines and tabs, etc.)
Notepad – every user on the planet needs this one
OpenArgs – launch this EXE with parameters (you need this!)
Orca – what’s in this MSI or transform? create a transform, etc.
Resource Hacker – view/extract/modify resources (icons, strings, raw version info, manifest, etc.)
TreeSize – where did all the disk space go?
TS Flag – view executable type (32-bit vs. 64-bit) and Terminal Server Aware flag status
Universal Extractor – find out what’s in this setup EXE without running it
WMatch2 – compare this folder’s contents to another
XVI32 – hex edit this file
Windows Refresher: To get to the SendTo folder, you’ll need to open up an Explorer window, and then paste in the following to the address bar.
