  • Suggested by billon

QiPress is a monitor for the system keyboard and mouse, describing activity in a small, semi-transparent black box in the corner of your screen. Ideal for presentations, screencasts, and program howtos, the program can also behave as a diagnosis tool for keyboard problems, describe unlabeled keys, or provide feedback show when an application is ignoring input.

Settings are available to ignore key-sets to exclude for example mouse or keypad activity, as well as window color, transparency, fade-out, and more.

@utilfreak

Thank you.

Also, QiPress triggers a User Account Control (UAC) prompt. What does it need it for?

utilfreak on 2015-06-03 16:09

@I am Baas
Thank you for your note, I wasn't aware of it as I have set UAC to the lowest level. QiPress 1.064 Build 6 will now trigger UAC only if it is running within:
a) C:\Program Files*\* OR
b) Root of a drive
This is generally required by programs that need to dynamically update their resources within those paths.

TinyTask is a small, simple mouse and keyboard macro recorder. Anything you do with the mouse or type on the keyboard while the program is running can be replayed as many times as you choose. Recordings can even be compiled into an executable file.

Notes:

  1. Recordings are not editable (perhaps in a theoretical v2).
  2. May not record mouse wheel movement on some mice.

For simple, repetitive tasks that you don't need a big program to fully automate, this can be a surprising time saver. Two caveats: 1. Do not touch the keyboard or mouse while the macro is running. 2. If you want to stop a process in the middle, hit ctrl+shift+alt+P. Very, very happy with it.

It's a real pity that the newer versions (aka 1.2.0 onwards) aren't portable, because the whole interface has been wonderfully overhauled and a whole slew of new features have been implemented. According to https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/91, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

Technomancer: if you mean the entry is unclear, please let us know in forums. If you mean the program itself (and for the RAR distro issue) you might want to contact the developer directly.

ihateyou on 2013-12-15 18:36

what you should know:
Cleanup is optional - it is very close related to an incremental backup.
Using this you have to select the same Target Directory as before to backup only changed files and to delete files on the backup that have been deleted on the original file system as well (the latter one is the actual Cleanup).

Hope it helps ;)

romulous on 2015-01-11 06:52

It's a crying shame that you can only backup folders with this tool, and not individual files within those folders (yes, I know you can set filters, but unless you know in advance what files you want from each folder, this is not practical to use).

@mrpink
Thank you. I updated the entry to include the information about esihdrv.sys. I did notice the driver in the temp folder but am not sure how I missed the registry keys when testing ESET SysInspector the first time. Anyway, if anyone needs help in deleting those LEGACY_ESIHDRV keys from the registry, see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8703

The developer of GetFoldersize was kind enough to promise to restore the smaller icons in the next release.

smaragdus on 2015-08-04 00:12

The small icons are back! ;)

Process Explorer is an advanced task manager. It is an indispensable tool for both beginners and power users. I use it all the time to kill tasks that refuse to be killed, or find what which processes are still holding on to a particular file or DLL so it refuses to be deleted.

Alternatively, Process Explorer Portable is also available, which is stealth.

Thanks for the useful article you provided. In fact I use both Process Hacker and System Explorer and I wonder which one I like more, both are exactly to my taste.

ProcessExplorer v16.20 released 18-NOV-2016

Annoyingly, SysInternals's powers-that-be are lapsing again into releasing utilities updates without bothering to provide some kind, any kind of timely changelog...:-(

Mercifully, this new release is still running happily under good ole Win XP, official disclaimer to the contrary notwithstanding...;-)

Process Explorer v16.20

Day late changelog...;-)

This release of Process Explorer
- adds reporting of process Control Flow Guard (CFG) status
- dynamically updates to reflect changes to process Data Execution Prevention (DEP) configuration.
