Desktop pop-up menu

I lost a small program yesterday that was one of the most useful items I've
ever had. I've had it for so long that I suspect that it was originally
loaded onto my system back when I was running Windows 98. It is simply a
pop-up alphabetized menu of all the items that are on my desktop that
allowed direct access to them without having to open the desktop itself.
Essentially, it was like the Show Desktop button, but was just a small
window with each item's icon and name. There was a small bar just to the
left of my tray that had an arrow. When I clicked it, the menu popped up on
top of everything else and then disappeared if I either used it to open a
desktop item or program or if I clicked elsewhere (other than on the menu).
It didn't perform or allow any other functions, it just simply opened as a
menu. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this might have been? I can't
remember the name of it, but have been through my Add/Remove Programs list
and can't find it there or anywhere else. In searching the internet, I see
that it's somewhat similar to Tray Explorer, but that's not it. Any
suggestions would be appreciated. I'm going to lose sleep over this one.

Yes!!!!! That's it. Thank you. It was part of Power Toys for Windows 95.
The only problem is that I can't find a download for it now.

Windows 95 Power Toys were not designed for Windows XP. That doesn't
necessarily mean they definitely won't work with XP; what it means is
that there's no guarantee they won't harm your operating system.
