How To Add Shortcuts To Removable Drives On Your Desktop

Each time you plug in a removable drive on Wndows, you have to navigate to My Computer and locate the drive before you can access it’s contents. But wouldn’t you like to have an Ubuntu-esque desktop icon that appears as soon as a drive is connected to the computer? Here’s a small tool that can do that.

Desk Drive Adds a Desktop Shortcut for Each Removable Drive

Here’s how DeskDrive works – it’s extremely simple.
The moment you plug in a removable drive, DeskDrive automatically adds an icon on your Desktop that points to the drive.

After you unplug the removable drive from the computer, DeskDrive automatically removes the shortcut from the desktop.

Once installed, Desk Drive sits in the system tray and doesn’t interfere until you ask it to open the configuration window;

You can configure it to exclude certain drives (like your internal hard drives), and also specify the time of drive to create shortcuts for (CD ROM, Removable, Fixed, Networked, and RAM drives).

The program runs on XP and Vista (also presumably on 7)
