  • Suggested by Replika

PngOptimizer is an easy-to-use program to compress common graphics formats to PNG format with no quality difference. Files can be added one at a time or in batch to the program icon or window. Images can also come from the clipboard by pressing CTRL+V while the application is in focus. Graphics formats supported include BMP, GIF, TGA, as well as further compressesing PNG files. Animated GIF and PNG files (APNG) are also supported. Size decrease for PNG files varies widely on the original editor, but GIF and BMP conversions can be as much as 40% and 95% respectively.

Cross-platform with clients available for Linux. A CLI version is available.

Alternatively, PngOptimizer Portable automatically switches between 32-bit and 64-bit and adjusts the screenshots path.

Note about the 2.3 update: definitely takes full advantage of multi-processor systems. I tested it on Win7x64 with an i7 quad core and it got very close to 90% (few programs can do that). Definitely a big speed bonus over time there and good to see those kind of optimizations in freeware.

uStart is a lightweight, minimalistic program launcher with a small program size and limited features (no drag and drop) but a very small program size.

Note: Although the homepage is in German, the program is in English.

No need to use Google translate or anything like that.

Lean and mean x32 tray menu launcher, let down only by the lack of further development (seemingly ended in 2010) and drag'n'drop support -- uStart is a single 78 KB executable, and IMHO it's on par with PStart. Recommended.

Iconize v2.0.0.5

  • Suggested by Replika

Iconize is only visible as a small icon in the system tray and allows you to hide any application to the system tray (as an icon) by its right-click menu. In the event Explorer crashes and takes down the taskbar and system tray with it, Iconizer will rebuild all your icons for you when Explorer restarts. In addition, it has functions for you to minimize, maximize, restore, or close all applications at once.

Official website no longer hosts the program (thanks Emka) so we are linking to the Softpedia download.

Iconize does not have to be installed to access the exe. It can be extracted using 7Zip.
