cbExtras - (for Registered users of CastleBar 2.50)

About cbExtras

cbExtras is an add-on for CastleBar v2.50.  A lot of our customers were asking for the ability to add buttons which open special folders like My Computer, Control Panel and Network Neighbourhood.

So, we wrote cbExtras, which does just that.  cbExtras allows you to select from a range of special folders and applications to add to CastleBar.  When it starts, cbExtras scans your system for Control Panel applets which are also added to the list for you to choose from.

Simply select the ones you want to add and click on Add to CastleBar.  The buttons are added behind the scenes and will be available through the CastleBar Configuration dialog next time you run CastleBar.  Note that when the buttons are added to CastleBar, they are disabled initially so that you can add them all (if you want) without having your CastleBar cluttered up with lots of buttons.
