This paper describes two methods that capitalize on some powerful, but not well known base SAS tools that let one easily build applications to accomplish common tasks. One method lets users right-click on a file in a SAS explorer window and then select a task from a menu. The other lets one assign a key that, when pressed, gives one or the users a way to specify a one or two-level filename and then run a particular task on the file. Both methods give a person an easy way to accomplish virtually any task, process or analysis. Each method was successfully tested on various operating systems, including Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, AIX and SUN.
