  • Released on 25 Feb 2021
  • 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).

Runs on: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

Hmmm and all this time I have been using notepad to edit any subtitle that needed editing....am I missing something or is there really an advantage to using software such as this?

The worst software I have tried,It doesn't work on windows 10 (Tried both portable and setup), The interface sucks. You can not even find a simple task like start time and end time.I tried following subtitles editors too;

1.SubtitleWorkshop : Doesn't support Mp4 (most common format)
2.Subtitle Adjuster : Not bad but You can't adjust the subtitle to sound exactly.
3.Time adjuster : Does't work on windows 10
4.AegiSub : There are so many options, but I couldn't find where to make the subtitle compatible with audio
5.Easy Subtitles Synchronizer : easy to use everything is clearly designed.

As a Software developer I advice the SubtitleWorkshop coder something ; Please try every feature separately on windows 10 x86 and x64 , Too many features take the software away from its main purpose and make it unusable

@klon, works fine on Windows 10 as far as I can see.

TeraCopy v3.6 Updated

Ennovy on 21 Feb 2021
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 1 Feb 2021
  • Suggested by AntBond

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a hash check to see if files are identical.

Note that a Pro version of the program is available with additional features.

Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder: Options.ini and main.db
Stealth: ? No. Creates some files in the user folder.
Unicode support: Yes
License: Free for personal use/Liteware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and launch
  2. Choose the destination folder
  3. Select "Portable version" and uncheck the option to "Associate with checksum files"
  4. Launch TeraCopy.exe
Optionally, delete all files starting with "unins" and the file "TeraCopyService.exe"

Even selecting the portable version, it's not portable. You have to rename the 'Portable.txt' file to 'Portable'. It also creates uninstall files.

webfork on 2020-11-15 12:59

@hamasaki: I added a note about the uninstall files and service, but not having any problems on my side with the portable file. Please post in forums if you have more info.

rasilkialan on 2020-11-19 03:22

WoW, I like the new features. This like the features in GoodSync and Gs RichCopy 360.
Know what I need to know, is Teracopy used SMB protocol, or can work via TCP port?

@ReDeX I've tried SQLite Administrator for a few minutes... It comes in a zip file with needed sqlite dlls and it has no settings except language so it could be used from a USB drive. But it's not stealth, it registers itself to open .sdb files and a few others. It also has no unicode support as I can see. I couldn't find out where he stores language option setting... In trying to find that out, I have only found out that it doesn't work at all on my second computer... Don't know why though, I have genuine xp sp3 on that computer...

bro on 2012-02-08 13:49

Sorry about the off topic again...
I found out where SQLite Administrator saves settings (in %APPDATA% by default), but it checks for sqliteadmin.ini in application directory first.
