- Shortcut Explorer 3.0 Shortcut Explorer looks a lot like Windows Explorer and is intended for shortcut file management. The columns in the right pane show, for each shortcut file, the information from the Properties page (target, directory, hotkey, etc.).
- Find Shortcuts 1.0 The window that appears as Find Shortcuts starts is similar to the Find Files window that comes with Windows 98. Most of the elements (menus, buttons, etc.) should be familiar. Shortcuts can be tested to see if they are still valid.

Text Ticker scrolls the contents of a text file at the top or bottom of the screen, or floating anywhere on the desktop. The text appears in a so-called "appbar" which is similar to the Windows Taskbar. All settings- font, color, text file, etc.- are saved between sessions.

Any text file can be dropped on the ticker and the program will begin to scroll that file's contents. Text files can also be retrieved from web servers (http or https). Text Ticker can also be started with a specific file by dropping the file on the Text Ticker application icon, or by setting up shortcuts with the filename as the only parameter.
Left-clicking the tray icon alternately shows and hides the ticker.
Multiple tickers can be run, each with its own file, speed, colors, etc. Each one acts independently. When you later start Text Ticker, the first one's settings will be used; if you start a second one, the second one's settings will be used, etc.
The popup menu is available by right-clicking either the ticker or the tray icon. Select Options to open the Options window.
Options include control over how it looks visually, horizontal or vertical scrolling, scrolling speed, image file used for a logo on either edge of the ticker, timed file reload if the file has changed, show/hide ticker depending on the file status, play a sound when the file is reloaded, and more.
A number of companies use Text Ticker to keep employees informed of the current status of call center queues, sales and stock information, or any other company news everyone needs to know. A locked version of Text Ticker is available which does not allow users to make any changes or close the program. Utilities to simplify network deployment are also available.
