Drive Bar


Drive Bar Icon Drive Bar is a small application we wrote for Windows XP & above to make it more convenient to open views of your hard drives in Windows Explorer®. Drive Bar presents a group of icons of available drives. Simply click on an icon to launch an Explorer view of that drive.

The program runs in the background and is always available for use. It can be configured to "Auto Hide" - you can park it at the edge of your display and it will disappear and not take up screen space when not in active use. To awaken Drive Bar from Auto Hide, move your mouse cursor to that edge of the screen. Drive Bar will automatically disappear from view again when you move the cursor away from the dialog. The Auto Hide mode is analogous to the Auto Hide function of the Windows Task Bar.

Alternatively, you can resize Drive Bar and/or have it remain visible at all times - handy for those of you who dislike auto hide programs.

Drive Bar doesn't have to use Windows Explorer. A configurable command line lets you use another File Manager-type program instead of Explorer. For example, you could configure Drive Bar to launch our own Directory Toolkit by changing the default browser launch command line from
  C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.exe /e,"%1"
  C:\Tools\Dirtkt\Dirtkt.exe /s"%1".
See the program documentation for your file manager for help on the command line functions available.

Windows 2000 users: If you have trouble, go to the Drive Bar Options dialog, 'Launch this program to browse field' and change the entry to 
  Explorer.exe /e,"%1"

Drive Bar is available in 32-bit version only. Usage on 64-bit operating systems is not supported.

Other options include a configuration switch to launch the drive views as "Tiled" or not. Tiled means that subsequent added views will be resized side-by-side. When Tiled is not on, drive views will be launched according the window size & location of the last instance of the file manager. You can specify drives to ignore and not include in list of drive icons. You can also configure Drive Bar run automatically at Windows startup.
