How to add items to category? It is very easy, you just need select category and drag-drop item to window with other items of this category. You can add programs (exe files), documents, all other files and shortcuts.

At first run you must create Categories. For each categoriy you can select image, you have few icons in ics1 directory, but don't use this icons in commenrcial projects, i'm not shure they are free for commercial use

When you add categories, please restart application.
