Get a Mac OSX like feature in Windows 7 with Drop2Open

Drop2Open gives a Mac OSX like feature for Windows 7. When you dragging and dropping a file, the default behavior of Windows 7 taskbar or superbar is pin the program to the jump list.

Drop2Open will reverse this default behavior. It will open the file in the program as in OSX dock when you dragging a file onto a pinned taskbar program.

That is, simply dragging and dropping will now open the file in the program, while Shift-Drag and Drop will pin the program to the jump list.

Drop2Open is a freeware AutoHotKey script for Windows 7. After installation, it will launches on start-up and runs in the system tray. It detects when you drag a file onto a docked program and proceeds to open it.

The program requires a little memory when running; it will only take up about 3MB of memory so speed should not be an issue. Download Drop2Open from programs home page.
