Spews v1.1.3

billon on 22 Jan 2019
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jan 2019
  • Suggested by Checker

Spews (Simple Process Excluding Wallpaper Switcher) is designed to automatically switch your wallpapers on a configurable schedule. You can add image folders, choose wallpaper options and check/uncheck the images paths as needed; only checked paths will be scanned for images.

The program will automatically suspend wallpaper switching if it detects any process names you configure in the Exclusions section. This can be beneficial, for instance, when running games that will be disrupted if the wallpaper is changed.

The word "Stealth" came into use recently in reference to the "stealth" airplanes the United States government started to use back in the 80's. As for these "stealth" airplanes they are in fact not invisible, what they show is a very small imprint in hopes to fool a radar operator into thinking that what they see is nothing to worry about. I suppose the fact of the matter is that there is no magic way to keep anything totally invisible on a computer. I for one can live with this free software calling itself "stealth" cuz that's what it looks like to me... Just sayin :) Thank you to the person for their hard work in bring me this free "stealth" software that does what it says.

If you only want to shut down a computer via RDP, click on an empty space of the desktop with the left mouse button and then hit [ALT]+[F4]. You will get all available options as you would locally.

Checker on 2016-01-05 15:08

@AyrA: See text on website:
"Yes, you can use the shutdown command via the commandline or you can click the taskbar and press Alt-F4, etc, but not everybody is comfortable using the commandline or remembers that hotkey."

QuickWayToFolders v1.3.7

billon on 22 Jan 2019
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jan 2019
  • Suggested by crownixx

QuickWayToFolders provides quick and easy access to a folder on your computer via a taskbar icon. The program window disappears when you click outside the window. Display modes include:

  • Desktop: Act like a mini-desktop, with small icons
  • Small Browser: very similar to Windows explorer in "details" view
  • Menu: Display folder content in a menu
  • Multiple Folders Menu: Display multiple folders content in a single menu (note that you must manually add them or nothing will appear when you click the icon)
In the "Menu" and "Multiple Folders Menu" settings, the program can act like a Program Launcher. Multiple instances of the program can be run with customizable icons and each entry is added to the taskbar.

To use the program as a root folder of a portable folder choose Options - Local path, then use a forward slash: "\". To set an image as a background place it in the application folder and set path as "image name.jpg" etc.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

How to extract:

  2. Launch QuickWayToFolders.exe
  3. Right-click the taskbar icon, select Options and uncheck "Launch at Windows Startup"

@thehop

Thanks, those are interesting apps. I really find ShortPopUp especially useful.

Better trust the executable. Softpedia also corrected the version number:

The version discrepancy should be noted -- the changelog at http://jacquelin.potier.free.fr/QuickWayToFolders/history.php stops at v1.3.4 ...

The instructions say:
"Run jcpicker.exe /ini and then close the program"
How do you Run that? In the folder there is an exe and an ini file, but not an exe /ini.

Midas on 2018-01-22 07:27

Type '[Windows key]+R', drag and drop 'jcpicker.exe' into the "Run" dialog, edit the the character string you just placed in the "Open" field, adding " /ini" at the end, click the "OK" button and presto... it's called a "Command Line Parameter".
