Taskix v1.5

Taskix lets you reorder buttons on the taskbar using drag-and-drop. Note that if "Group similar taskbar buttons" is set, you will be able to move a button inside the group or move the group as a whole, but not to move a button out of its group. If you open many windows so buttons end up stacked up on a single taskbar button, Taskix will also work inside the stacked button list.

Taskix seems to occasionally get windows confused for me. I've had a few windows which simply won't come to the top when I click on them - they stay behind the others. It's not necessarily taskix at fault (I have VirtuaWin running as well), but switching it off fixed the problem.

Uh... there are not any zip files to download.
So, how do I make it portable?

kaleb, the new version of Taskix uses the MSI install method.

v1.5 still exists on the Taskix server:

WinSnap v1.1.10

webfork on 9 Apr 2017

WinSnap is a small utility for taking and editing screenshots. It can easily capture screenshots of non-rectangular windows with the background of your choice, automatically perform simple canvas transformations and coloring effects, add professional Photoshop-style shadows etc. Note that if you are running this on versions of Windows before XP, you will need to place GDIPLUS.DLL in the application folder.

Note: Starting from V2.x, WinSnap is no longer free for personal use. We are linking to the archive.org site for the last freeware version. If you have a more recent freeware version, please post in forums.

The last freeware portable edition is still available from the authors site, however it is difficult to find it.

The URL to the freeware download page is ...

I agree with CD. This is simply the best capture tool for Windows.

Download is broken - Error 404.

Can be downloaded from: http://codecpack.co/download/WinSnap.html (link is bottom of the page)

Uninstall Tool v1.6.6

webfork on 18 Jun 2016

Uninstall Tool is a small and fast utility that performs software uninstallation like the slow and bloated "Add and Remove Programs" applet. It includes a number of nifty features missing from the standard applet, such as display hidden installed programs, calculate how much disk space a program occupies, search by typing known letters of the program's name, deletion of entry if uninstaller is unavailable or fails to run etc.

Note: Starting from V2.x, Uninstall Tool has gone payware. As such, I have included a direct download link for the last freeware version that I have.

Hi... this is NOT freeware. It has 30 days evaluation.

ChemZ on 2010-08-25 13:01

What 30 evaluation? Being using it fine for a few months already.

Works quite fast I might add. Good features for it's size.

ChemZ on 2010-08-25 13:03

Correction...

V1.6.6 has no time limit.
V2.x does.

It appears Mike Lin took down it's former website -- www.mlin.net is now void of any of his utilities.

After declaring all his software obsolete, he provides a link to https://web.archive.org/web/20131109164426/http://www.mlin.net/index.shtml.

Sadly, as most of his utilities were single file executables (exes), they didn't get harvested into the Web Archive; SCP is still available from:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Startup-Control-Panel.shtml
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/startup_control_panel_standalone_version.html

The entry was updated to reflect this...

"Mike Lin took down it's former website" ... That's a real bummer. Mike's programs helped out a bunch of people that I introduced to this. I definitely owe him. Great software and a huge help supporting XP and dealing with insistant autostart programs and junkware.

@webfork: I'm in that bunch, too... :(
