Yep.  That's exactly what I use, too.  Great minds think alike, eh?

I have a set of AutoTypers for my most-needed file type conversions.  
These are kept in a tabbed window at the bottom of my screen.  The 
window's icon view is set to Button mode, to make large drag targets.  
Then, when I need to type convert a file, all it takes is a quick drag to 
the bottom of the screen, the window pops up, and I drop the file on the 
appropriate AutoTyper.

There are some shareware/freeware contextual menu plug-ins which provide 
the same functionality with a control-click on a file's icon.  I've tried 
a couple of these and found them buggy.  Perhaps there are some good 
ones, but the AutoTypers-in-tabbed-window thang is just about as fast, 
and totally reliable.
