Director is a fantastic desktop tool for RISC OS. It extends a simple scripting language built in to RISC OS to offer you the ability to create menus and place icons on the iconbar. Menu items lead to sub-menus; to useful commands or perform actions on selected files. Director comes with an extensive set of default menus that allow it to work out of the box on any RISC OS machine and integrates with the file-systems and services present.

Director provides an innovative view onto files through easily navigatable menus. Right clicking on a drive icon will get you anywhere in the filesystem or just menu-click on the titlebar of a filer window. These menus can be linked to icons, other menus, or integrated to execute a predefined command on a user selected file.

Director adds a new menu to the Display icon (adjust click) and a new pinboard menu (menu click). Replacement of other menus and actions on other icons possible with a single command.

Director also contains a powerful script system, mapping keyboard shortcuts and custom menus to almost any action imaginable.

Director has a file/folder/application Memoriser facility and can tie key presses to actions or menus.

Director is fully customizable by the user and can do many if not all of the functions of Pinboard+, TreeMenu, DirMenu, Filer-, QuickDir, DeskUtils, Memorizer, Menon and some of the functions of Filer+.

Finally, the Director icon displays the current time unobtrusively on the left of the iconbar
