The idea is ok, but the execution isn't. The program is unstable and the fact that you need to have to open Internet Explorer first doesn't make it very useful, because let's be honest; how many times do you need a file when you're browsing? A better program is ..., which stores regular folders under a shortcut, in my case Windows Key + Z and you can use it anywhere you want, in any program, even inside input boxes where you have to enter the name of the file you want to open, save or print.
Tray Commander is an excellent product and does exactly what it's made for: start programs as easy as possible. I've tried them all, but this one doesn't focus on fancy stuff that you seldom need; it's to the point. Left click on the icon and you have all the directories, files, commands or programs you need, but you can also make an extra menu with a right click on that same button.
3 things can be improved:
- I takes too long to start if you make it an auto start program.
- The screen that pops up when you want to add a new command doesn't have the entries organized alphabetically.
- Not an easy way to backup your settings, other then backing up the complete directory.
Yet, even with these shortcoming, highly recommended.

It lacks two of the most useful things that makes other programs so much better; Layers and masks.
It also LACKS color management, clipping layers, histograms, curves, channels, LAB, CMYK, brush engine, adj. layers, layer styles, etc. Btw, did I forget to mention that it also lacks vectors
