Wise Tech Tips

Get to files quickly with QuickJump

By: James Wise
web posted August 4, 2009
TECH TIPS – I have a lot of files on my computer. To help find things, I have a very organized system with a lot of folders and subfolders. While this is quite helpful, it means that sometimes it takes me a while to get to the files I want. Recently, I found a great free program called QuickJump that helps me get to my files quickly.

Normally, getting to a file involves a process of opening “My Computer” and clicking and clicking through folders until I get to the file I want. With QuickJump, I can just hit ctrl+shift+j and start typing the name of the folder I want to open much quicker than I can otherwise. For example, let’s say I wanted to open the document for my column about Xobni. I can hit ctrl+shift+j and start typing xobni. After just hitting “xo”, quickjump has found the folder that I’m after and now I can just hit enter to open that folder.

You can read more about QuickJump and download it from here:
There’s also a nice video on that page which shows the program in action.

The installation is straightforward but if you have any questions or problems, just email me: EdgefieldTechHelp@gmail.com.

Once the program is installed, all you have to do is use ctrl+shift+j to use it. If you want to change the quick key to access the program, just right click the QuickJump icon in the systray (area near the clock) and click options.

By default, QuickJump will search your “my documents” folder. If you use a different folder or want it to search other folders, just right click the QuickJump icon and click on “Configure File Locations”. Now, you can click “include folders” to select the folders you would like to add.

You can even use quickjump in “save as” or “open” dialog boxes within programs. For example, if you want to save a Word document, click the normal save as button, use ctrl+shift+j to open up the quickjump box, and select your folder. The “save as” box will then use the selected folder.

QuickJump has become one of those “must have” utilities for my computer. I’m able to save time by using it so that I can get more actual work done.
