- Link (URL): Add your preferred web pages and open them in your default browser at any time or in a specific browser if specified in advanced settings.
- FTP Site: Open FTP sites in Explorer, Directory Opus or Total Commander, with login name and password inserted in site address (take note that the password is not encrypted, is saved in the settings file and sent on Internet in clear text - be cautious if your password protects sensitive data!).
- Snippet: Record a sequence of characters that can be typed in a flash when you need to inser them in any application (snippets help).
