With the help of ViPad you can easily access files, folders, programs and links by creating shortcuts in a window, where they can be broken down into multiple tabs. Therefore, you have the possibility or categorizing frequently used items by type, such as home or work-related.
Installing ViPad does not take a lot of time. The main application window is semi-transparent, and the app offers to import all current desktop shortcuts at the first run. Adding new items can be done using the drag-and-drop support.
It is possible to create as many tabs as you want with the click of a button, as well as to rename, delete or search them for shortcuts. Alternatively, you can disable the tabbed display from the Settings panel.
As far as other program options are concerned, you may adjust the icon dimensions, show the control box, hide the desktop, as well as set ViPad to automatically run at system startup, minimize on launch, and to stick to the desktop via a hotkey.
The program has minimal impact on system resources, since it runs on a pretty low amount of CPU and RAM. It automatically remembers settings and shortcuts on exit, so there is no risk of losing data. We have not come across any kind of problems throughout our evaluation, as ViPad did not trigger the operating system to freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs.
When it comes down to it, ViPad offers an interactive and easy-to-understand method of keeping track of frequently accessed files, folders, apps and links, and it can be handled even by users with no previous experience in computer software.
