Dan Fernandez notes that my alter ego, the c# team mascot, is retiring. Why is he my alter ego? Take a look:
- Named Andy? Check
- Red Hair? Check
- Glasses? Check
- Left Handed? Check
- Loves C#? Check
- Dilbert-esque tie? .... uh... that's why he's the alter-ego
Occasionally in IE, I'd get frustrated because there's no easy way ( at least to my knowledge ) to get the url of an image that's right there on the page in front of me. I finally decided to sit down and implement a CopyImageUrl menu extension so that I can right click an image and select “Copy Image Url”. tada. hope you find it useful.
I've updated the package to be an .inf installer. This should give me windows-folder independence. If it's already working for you, ignore the update. If it isn't working for you... download the new version and try that.

One of my favorite keyboard shortcuts in Windows is CTRL+NUMPAD+Plus.
You can get Windows to automatically resize the columns (in details view) to fit the widest item for the column, so no data is lost and only the space needed is taken.
Geez... for how many years has this functionality just been sitting there unused? How the heck are people supposed to "discover" this kind of functionality? There's no menu item for this... no button... no help file I've ever seen that states this behavior...
What I would like to see, some magical day, is for microsoft to publish every single keyboard shortcut that exists in explorer and the built in windows controls.
And to make it easier to find the truly useful ones, make it so windows users can vote on their favorite ones. This shortcut would probably be in my top 10 most useful.
