Date Reminder alerts you to both recurring and nonrecurring events, like birthdays, bills to pay, appointments etc. The reminders are listed in chronological order. Reminders can be marked "done", i.e. "dealt with". Past events will remain in the list until they are marked "done". An advance notice marker can be set a number of days before an event.

After having tried out several of those simple reminders, I believe I'm going to stick with this one. It's not as pretty as a few other ones, but it has some nice additional options (like launching of files, programs, links, etc.) and, above all, it's the only one that I know of that reminds me not only after the computer has started, but also after the computer gets out of STANDBY mode. And I use standby quite often. If someone knows of another reminder that also reminds after the computer gets out of standby, please let me know.

I agree with dot that there are some nice options, and in addition, the list is in text format, and I have it set to autocreate CSV format so I can look at all, say, upcoming Canadian elections (I have all kinds of things in mine) and import into other programs. The author revisits most of his tools about once a year, and for utilities that is pretty good. After over a decade, I am still using Reminder.

@webfork
There's a "More downloads..." link on the developer's Website. "How to extract" mentions that, but nunz failed to RTFT.

Baas: no prob, thanks for direct-linking the 32 and 64-bit versions. Adding a notice about the adware version.

TP109 on 2014-09-05 05:39

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

DesktopOK v4.63 Updated

billon on 18 Mar 2017
  • 268KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Mar 2017
  • 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).

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. In this folder, create an empty text file and name it DesktopOK.ini. Launch DesktopOK.exe or DesktopOK_x64.exe.

Possible issues:
  • The program is in German: If not automatically set to the English, click the by clicking the flag in the lower left corner of the window for any of 24 world languages.
  • It saves to AppData: If you don't create an empty text file, it writes to %APPDATA%/DesktopOK/DesktopOK.ini. If you accidentally skipped this step, you can simply move this file over to the application folder.
Similar/alternative apps: AltDrag, ICU
What's new?
  • The DesktopOK.exe is now also Unicode.
    The DesktopOK_Unicode.exe will be removed from the downloads.
    The reason is that the users use the Ansi version this is not so good from Windows XP and higher.
  • Update of the language files plus small adjustments.

I love this guy's lightweight and practical software so much that I've donated to him (very rare for me!). Many of his tools I see that this tool combines several of his others -- and my favorites as a trainer -- into one: AutohidedesktopIconsOK, AutohideMouseCursorOK, DontSleepOK, and others. Can't wait to try it.

As of Firefox 49, Firefox requires SSE2 just like Pale Moon. Thus, there are no longer differences in system requirements between Firefox and Pale Moon. I dropped all the text about Pale Moon's system requirements.

Hawk on 2017-01-17 18:41

Sadly the latest versions no longer support WinXP.

MIKLO on 2017-03-06 16:08

Very useful program, I have been using Sea Monkey for awhile due to the speed of changing sites. I curious to see how Pale Moon Portable compares. I will let you know, more will be reveled.

@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

filobus on 2015-05-28 07:38

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)
