PointerStick modifies the mouse arrow to appear as a virtual pointer stick. This is helpful for presentations to highlight content, and the size, shape, and other details of the Pointer can be customized.

I think would be great to add different pointers, for example a hand (finger) ponting this may spend a little less length or screen space (in some presentations would be an adventage), or may be a pencil or a stick. A menu of differents pointers.
Best Regards.

Daneel on 2012-07-03 18:26

But my arrow doesn't disappear with the stick.
It is possible to have the stick without original pointer with some effect for every cursor? Like normal, text, link cursor etc.

rogerthedodger on 2012-10-27 02:51

Yes agreed would be more useable if the original arrow was to disappear whilst the stick was on show. I do however like software by this guy, and couldnt live without "always mouse wheel" which is what microsoft should have originally had.

HDDB v4.4.0 Updated

Midas on 1 Mar 2015
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 1 Mar 2015
  • Suggested by Userfriendly

HDDB (HardDisk DataBase) is a file search tool that provides as-you-type results to search terms. The program quickly assembles a database of the drive contents on initial program-run and keeps this until another check is run (or a regular check is set in options). Since the program doesn't auto scan for changes on start-up, searches can be conducted on the previously saved data.

Additional features include lightning fast sorting, folder search panel, folder sizes (enabled in Tools - Options), thumbnail view, folder tree view, named searches, multiple instances, file listing export, and command-line support. Although the program doesn't do live updates, it can be set to auto-update on a timer (e.g. 5 minutes, daily, at startup, etc.)

Only functional on NTFS drives, but does not require admin privileges or trigger UAC prompts like similar programs. Does not search file internals.

fullbug: there are some things it does better than Everything, some not. Feature-wise I think HDDB wins while I tend to prefer Everything's interface.

freakazoid on 2015-02-15 21:04

If there is one reason why you should use HDDB over Everything, it's the ability to sort searches instantly. Everything hangs when you attempt to sort (for me anyway).

freakazoid on 2015-02-15 21:05

As for interface, you can disable a few panels so the UI resembles Everything.
