  • As a computer graphics artist that have dozens of explorer windows of different directories of reference materials opened during working, one of the chore was to close them all each time a piece is finished (short of rebooting - which I like neither). This is exactly the tool I needed. Simple, does its job, no fuss, no nagging. Just writing here to appreciate the author's efforts. Thanks a lot.
