DesktopOK v6.41 Updated

billon on 16 Jul 2019
  • 446KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Jul 2019
  • Suggested by JohnW

DesktopOK contains a host of beneficial Windows interface tweaks. The program can save the current icon view by resolution and make it easy to swap between views, showing all saved view formats in a list. Other tools include basic screenshots, the ability to force-close programs, color tool, volume and more:

  • Interface tools include reducing clutter with a minimize-to-tray by right clicking on a window close button, mouse hiding and ability to hide desktop icons after a period of inactivity (click on the desktop to make them re-appear). You can even modify default icon spacing.

  • Window management tools include scrolling any window that your mouse hovers over (not just what's in focus) and alt+drag (for moving windows without having to hold your cursor over the top bar).

I still use & really like this program now using Windoze 10. I'm anal about my Desktop icons arrangement, and this program makes it so easy to line them up just as I want. Thanks to the maker for a program that I have used for a very long time across many different operating systems. Has always been flawless for me :)

It would be even better if DesktopOK didn't force an icon rearrangement with every resolution change -- in my laptop, a lot of those are temporary, resulting from user logon or the machine coming out of sleep state before, rerouting graphics to my higher resolution external screen. After some time it's galling to have to restore icon arrangement after every such hiccup. I've gone through all settings several times but up to now have been unable to disable this behavior.

@Midas strange because I have used on laptops for a very long time and have never seen this problem, now I really curious to see if I can make happen. More to be revealed.

webfork on 20 Jul 2019

It allows you to easily find files by wildcard, last modified/created/last accessed time, file attributes, content (text or binary search), and file size. File types available for search includes Microsoft Office and PDF files. The program also be detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

Note that the program is non-indexing, meaning it searches the drive directly, which is often slower but more accurate.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

Agree with Crid. Might have had some issues initially, but I use it regularly each day without issues. Its such a timesaver. And having the shortcut to pop up the menu is superb. Not seen any other clipboard utlities come close to this one.

hamasaki on 2013-07-29 12:41

I think Arsclip makes all other clipboard utilities redundant, its that good. Could have a better name though.

xor on 2017-03-23 20:29

Testing, testing, testing... ArsClip is just so convenient, productive, agile, intuitive, effective... This long-rightClick way to show the PopUp is just so Killer, wow! This App rocks of course.

Overall this is an okay program not as good as Quick Cliq IMO and experience. Which is the main reason I wanted to comment as it is still being developed a new version came out 04/16/2018 that fixed a lot of Windows 10 issues. Personally speaking I also really don't like the donation bullying in QAP. I don't mind some well placed donation buttons especially in editors windows..etc but a perma-link in the main menu just leaves a bad impression on me.

I came to this software from Chameleon Folder. QAP has more features! I like the ability to open a preset location inside of a file dialog. Very useful!

I like this player a lot. I love that it can be setup to use relative paths for the music folder (I had to edit the config file for this). My only gripe so far is that it will not read the coverart from the ID3 tags... it only looks at the art in the folders.
