PikyFolders seems the most useful on first glance. For those of us who organize files into huge, deep folder trees, it's a great idea to set up a list of favorite folders with PikyFolders. Then, whenever you Open or Save As, click the red PikyFolder icon and choose from your favorites, potentially saving many clicks.

PikyBasket is the multi-copy, single-paste utility. Once you select files and add them to the graphical basket icon, a user interface appears that allows you to arrange the files in the basket and even filter them before finally pasting them to a destination. Very handy if you copy or move files around frequently.

Last of all, PikyTools adds a few miscellaneous bits of functionality to Windows, none of which are hugely useful. The most useful of the five is probably the ability to create many folders and subfolders all at once, giving you an organized folder tree in a short amount of time.

PikySuite has the potential to save a lot of time and tedious Windows folder navigation, and is well worth a try.

Note: This software comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. This is the 64-bit version, which is for 64-bit PCs running 64-bit Vista. If your PC is running a different supported OS, please download the 32-bit version instead.
