Favorite links is a feature of vista's explorer. It allows you to access any folder just with one click. You can have this in XP too with a program called FindeXer.
Once you installed FindeXer, go to View>Explorer Bar and select FindeXer. It will appear on the left, you'll notice that the icons and the configuration is not vista like. Right click it and select findexer options.
Here is the perfect vista configuration for it:
Background color: RGB all 252
Hot track BG item: RGB 214, 240, 248
Hot item: RGB 0, 100, 200
Item color RGB 0, 100, 200
Font: Segoe UI, 9, normal (also can be Tahoma)
Solid line, 1, 90%, RGB all 192
To add a item to FindeXer - just drag and drop a folder or shortcut to it.
FindeXer will have awful icons by default, you can change them. Extract the icons (20) supplied in this pack, put them to any folder which will not be moved\deleted\renamed. Then right click a item in FindeXer and select Edit [...]. There you can rename a item and use a custom image,
select browse and go to your icon folder. Select and PNG image and click OK. Now the item will be vista style. You will have to do this with every item. FindeXer saves automaticly, you
can also save the configuration in right click menu.
Vista basic styler toolbar with "Favorite links" text is also included.
Comments are welcome!
