Windows operating system has many folders in the file system known as the "Special Folders". These folders are used for storing application settings and files, saving internet and temporary files, storing shortcuts to other files, etc.

I found a nice utility called SpecialFoldersView  by Nirsoft that shows the list of all special folders in your current Windows operating system, and allows you to easily jump to the desired folder.

This freeware and portable utility can be stored in a USB memory card and works on many operating systems (Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7).
