Sorry, bit delayed as I only finished up my tip for here late yesterday afternoon so ran out of time to post this; then I got busy this morning and, well, it's now a day late. Sorry.

Steal/adapt/re-use/redistribute, but no charging money. Not sure how much you'd get, mind.

Yes, number 31. Number 30 was a tip specific to our school about using the new headed paper by going to My Templates in Word 2010, because group policy preferences lets you do really cool stuff these days.
Anyway, number 31 is a brief guide on searching folders in Windows 7 using the built in search. No, it's not perfect. No, it's not quick. But it does the job most of the time and it's right there. It'll meet the needs of most people most of the time and, in theory, save you all
