[various] RotoPath

How much time do you spend navigating through folders every day? For me, the answer was: Way too much.

I decided to give a try to an old idea and created a very simple app to navigate through folders (folders only, this is not a file explorer!!). It presents folders in a wheel. A left click goes to the next folder, a right click opens explorer on the folder. The wheel can be displayed at any time by pressing Left-Control and Left-Windows simultaneously.

As can be seen some folders are shown in red: These are the folders you use most often. Hence, they are visually outlined so that you can quickly get to the places the most important to you.

There are three special icons in the middle: Open command line at current folder, Show favorite folders, Go back to the computer root.

RotoPath is brand new and will likely have a few bugs, but it already helps me a lot on an everyday basis. Maybe you'll find it useful as well.
