Get Automatic Desktop Shortcuts on Plugging USB Drives



Whenever we insert a USB drive in our computer, we have to Navigate to My Computer to open it.

Desk Drive solves this annoying problem by adding a Desktop shortcut automatically when the drive is inserted. When the drive is removed, the shortcut automatically disappears. Simple isn’t it.

It sits in the system tray and comes with some configuration options. You can specify which types of media should it monitor such as CD ROM, Networked, RAM etc. You can also specify whether the icons should have fixed positions and which drives should it ignore.

It is a freeware and supports both XP and Vista. It needs .Net Framework 2.0 to run.
