Guillotine – quick and easy access to commonly and uncommonly used items

O. James Samson - January 3, 2007

prefsshortcuts.jpgWhen you have a lot of applications on your system it can really be a tough task accessing them. Guillotine is a lightweight Windows utility that allows you to quickly and naturally access items you commonly (and uncommonly) use like programs, bookmarks, contacts, and web searches.

With Guillotine you find things quickly and easily. The idea is to find things quickly just by typing a few keys, selecting your item, and having a nice time. It’s much more intuitive and easier than hunting down those items as you normally would. But the truth is it will take some time getting used to it as old habits die hard. But once you do, you’ll see how much more intuitive, easier and quicker it is to your normal workflow.

The latest version of Guillotine,, has this recent changes:

  • Fixed Opera plugin looking in opera profile folder
  • You can now use relative paths in the FileSystem plugin
  • You can now use the following psuedo-environment variables in the FileSystem plugin, which will expand to their corresponding paths on your system: %START_MENU%, %START_MENU_ALL%, %MY_DOCUMENTS%, %DESKTOP%, %DESKTOP_ALL%, %RECENT%, and %QUICK_LAUNCH%
  • FileSystem extensions now upgraded to full file filters (i.e. can now use wildcards like: *.exe and *work*.doc)
