SoundVolumeView displays general information and current volume level for all active sound components on your system, allowing instant mute/unmute. This is useful both for viewing audio management details as well as tracking down (and silencing) a given program sound from your system. Additionally, the program also allows for loading or saving custom sound configurations for a given situation or toolset. A config file contains volume level, mute/unmute state of all sound components and default sound devices.

A command-line interface is also available with extensive support, allowing you to save/load profiles, change the current volume of every sound component and mute/unmute every sound component.

Desktop Info v1.12.0 Updated

  • Suggested by I am Bass

Desktop Info displays system information on your desktop in a similar way to some other desktop information tools. Unlike others, this application looks like wallpaper but stays resident in memory and continues to update the display in real time. Uses very little memory and nearly zero CPU. Perfect for quick identification and walk-by monitoring of production or test server farms. Everything is customisable including language.

Desktop Info v1.10.1
Nice enough looking gizmo at first,
but accessing the right-click context menu settings under WinXP works haphazardly at best,
and most often starts a blinking epilepsy.
Only way to exit then is from Task Manager three-finger salute process kill...:-(

Anyone else experiencing this puzzling behaviour ?

@__philippe:

Same here

@billon: Thanks for checking
Just dropped a note on developer's blog; we'll' see...

@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.
