Windows Explorer Tracker 1.1

Windows Explorer Tracker is a simple tool for recording many file and folder-based actions you might perform in Explorer, and some programs: delete, create, rename, insert, add or remove.

The program is very easy to use. Just launch it, open an Explorer window, create a new file, delete it, and your actions will immediately appear in the Windows Explorer Tracker window. And they're also saved in log files for easy reference later.

We found Windows Explorer Tracker also record file-based operations initiated by some programs, or as a part of normal system operations (saving a graphics file, say, or adding a file to the \Windows\Recent folder).

The reports don't provide anything like the detail of, say, Process Hacker. Windows Explorer Tracker works at a much higher level, recording only basic file operations, so if you just change settings or launch a program, say, nothing will be listed at all.

Still, if you just want to record the file-related operations being carried out on your PC then this is a simple way to do it.

And Windows Explorer Tracker could have other purposes, too. If you're wondering what others are doing in Explorer, say, this may help you find out. (Although the program doesn't run hidden, so your other users may be able to spot what's happening and turn it off.)
