To share files you normally opt for online file hosts; to use these hosts you need to first open up your web browser. It would definitely be more convenient to start sharing files straight from your desktop without having to open the browser at all. This is what a tool called SimpleShare helps you accomplish.


SimpleShare is an online file sharing service that offers a desktop client for Windows computers. The desktop client adds a new entry to the context menu; using this entry you can directly upload files to your SimpleShare account through your desktop. You can then log into your SimpleShare account anytime to obtain your file’s embeddable code, get your file’s sharing link, add tags to your files, preview your file, download it, and see its properties. Previews of many file formats are supported including PSD, DOCX, and MP3. The online interface of SimpleShare is completely ad-free.

Another useful feature of SimpleShare is the ease with which you can take screenshots and record screencasts and then upload them to your SimpleShare account.


Using the hotkeys supported by the desktop client you can quickly create screenshots and upload them to your SimpleShare account.


  • A user-friendly web service.
  • Lets you upload and share files directly from your desktop.

     I like Make Use Of it has been useful for me in the past but having been busy these many months I feel I have missed out on a lot of new Web Sites and Cool software that could be useful to me however it would be nice if you had a archive of past information that I no I have missed out on and could browse through what was missed and could access it the time was right.
    If you do have something like that could you help me to access it.

    The problem I have with simple file sharing services for something as simple as a screencast or even a few hi-res pics is the size per file limit--25MB is rather small; 50MB isn't much better.
