3 Ways to Access Your Linux Partitions From Windows

image

If you're dual-booting Windows and Linux, you'll probably want to access files on your Linux system from Windows at some point. Linux has built-in support for Windows NTFS partitions, but Windows can't read Linux partitions without third-party software.

This list is focused on applications that support the Ext4 file system, which most new Linux distributions use by default. These applications all support Ext2 and Ext3, too – and one of them even supports ReiserFS.

How to Arrange Shortcuts into Groups on the Windows 7 Quick Launch Bar

The Quick Launch Bar is a handy tool for quickly and easily launching applications. However, if you've put a lot of shortcuts on the Quick Launch Bar, it can get quite cluttered and you cannot rearrange the shortcuts or sort them into groups.

By default, the Quick Launch Bar is hidden in Windows 7. However, you can easily add the Quick Launch Bar to the Taskbar. We've previously written about a free tool that creates a launcher in the Windows system tray that is similar to the Quick Launch Bar.

There is also a free tool, called Free Launch Bar, that allows you to group shortcuts on the Quick Launch Bar and add titles, separators, and submenus. It is fully compatible with the Windows Quick Launch Bar because it is uses the same folder for the shortcuts.

To install Free Launch Bar, extract the .zip file you downloaded (see the link at the end of this article). Run the appropriate executable file, depending on whether you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows.
