Best Free Software for Windows

I stumpled upon this great freeware site while visiting Ed's list of great free software.

My personal favourites are FileTarget and CopyURL

FileTargets is a shell context menu extension that adds a sub-menu with all your favorite folder names to the context-menu of all files and folders in your system so you can copy/move selected files to pre-defined, most used folders with the click of a mouse. FileTargets menu is similar to the standard SendTo menu but is much more advanced since it allows you to create subgroups, automatically add new folders, copy file path names and much more.

CopyURL is a shell extension that helps you to copy different information from your Internet Shortcut files (entries in the Favorites folder or *.url files) to the clipboard. Then you can simply paste it from clipboard to your e-mails, HTML editor or other documents. It adds commands Copy URL, Copy Link and Copy Name to the shell context menu of Internet Shortcut files.

Ed also writes about another great site: This list is intelligent, cleanly designed, and just packed with great information. I already use several of the programs on this list and can attest to the thoroughness of Zaine's reviews and the accuracy of the details he's posted.
